A masterpiece of 18th century architecture, the Great Stables were built by the architect Jean Aubert for Louis-Henri de Bourbon, the 7th prince of Condé. They are a veritable horses’ palace.
The building houses the Museum of the Horse, which presents the relationship between men and horses since the beginning of civilization.The Great Stables offer equestrian shows throughout the year, devoted to the art of haute-école horse training which has been contributing to Chantilly’s international renown for more than 30 years.
The Museum of the Horse was inaugurated in 2013 in the 15 rooms of the Cour Des Remiss in the Great Stables. As a museum of both art and ethnology, its aim is to allow visitors to discover the importance of the relationship between men and horses since the beginning of civilization.
