If you’re one of the lucky ones with Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) tickets (23 August-7 September), have you made time to explore Normandy as part of your trip?

Even if you’re not attending the Games, it’s worth considering this part of France as a future holiday destination, with the family or alone.

With an impressive array of French-bred horses grazing in every field, racecourses in each town and equine art decorating every restaurant wall, it is a haven for the horse lover.

H&H’s Emily Secrett visited the region to find out more. Take a look at her pictures here, and read her full report in this week’s issue of Horse & Hound magazine (26 June 2014).
