Cavallada, Céret: Horse parade and blessing
Annual parade and blessing of horses with plenty of associated activities and entertainment.
An event for horse lovers, this event came about when cavaliers, Arnaud and Denis Degournay Borrat, decided to create a rally where they could share their passion for horses with like minded souls. And so the Cavallada Ceret was born.
Anybody with a horse can join in – or if you don’t have a horse, contact one of the many riding schools around.
