This weekend at the exhibition hall in Albi is the 2017 Salon du Cheval. Exhibitors staged a procession into the city centre yesterday (Friday 3rd March) where they were blessed by the curé.
Horses and riders blessed in Albi
The weekend will have shows of every aspect of horses and riders, from thoroughbred race horses to shetland ponies, tack and riding outfits, conferences and presentations. In addition presentations of western (ie cowboy) style riding will be given in the Zenith open air venue.
Sadly the horrible weather is forecast for the weekend, so outdoor events may be affected.
