A popular show to be together

“We proposed the Camargue Days, on Saturday June 25 and Sunday June 26. There, we are organizing the return of the Cavadélis equestrian show, which we had already hosted from 2007 to 2013. We had wanted to organize it in 2021 but the Covid-19 decided otherwise”explain Guy and Vincent Laroze.

Why horses? “We too often forget that a bullfighting club is interested in bulls but also in horses, especially when organizing bandido and abrivado. With Cavadélis, we wanted to host a popular show to allow people to meet together in the arenas”say Guy and Vincent Laroze.
