 Post subject: Horseball - St-Lo (50) 14 / 15 February
PostPosted: Sat Feb 07, 2009 1:38 pm 
Advance notice that next weekend the equestrian centre at St-Lo hosts a horse ball competition. If you don't know what horse ball is, it's a sort of basketball on horses (not rugby as one of the commentators on the link below describes it). It usually starts around 10am and goes through to the late afternoon. Some years it's free to spectate but I think there may now be a charge of 3 or 4 euros per person. It's undercover but at this time of year, it can get quite chilly sitting on concrete steps so warm clothes + a pad to sit on is a good idea.

The equestrian centre at St-Lo is past the Haras (Haras on the left) and on towards the Maison d'Agriculture complex - little more than a minute past in the car. It's off to the left and signed and there's plenty of parking. If you get to the Maison d'Agriculture buildings, you've gone too far.

On Saturday, if you want to mix shopping with your sport, there's a Les Aubaines (la Redoute + their other brands) outlet shop on the right, on the main road, in the general vicinity of the equestrian centre which has some excellent discounts on clothes (children, men, women), shoes, bedding, belts, bags... even lower prices during the sales.

What's horse ball? Watch on Youtube...
