Domaine du Chant d'Éole
You can still see the traces of this long history of friendship. The men and women of Quévy have not forsaken their favourite animal. Horses are even part of all the festivals. At the end of August, during the traditional Blaregnies village harvest festival, it’s frankly star of the show! Draught horses parade like stars among old tractors and, through demonstrations, they show how much they’ve served people. The animal is also invited to the humorous bike race organised in mid-August. Two horses pull a cart and carry people with reduced mobility if necessary.
More amazing still is the number of stables, rings and equestrian centres all over the commune. If you’re visiting the area and have the bright idea of browsing the bucolic landscapes of Quévy, you’ve got nothing to be worried about. You’ll easily find a soft nest for your mount! The Grand Esquerbion farm at Givry, the By stables at Blaregnies, the Hardret stables at Aulnois, the Beaudroit breeding farm at Bosqueau Printanier in Quévy-le-Petit, the horse kennel in the Château Cardinal in Bougnies, etc. Each village, or almost every one, has a place dedicated to horses or the practice of riding.
Quévy does not have marked equestrian trails but hear it that if you want to discover the area on horseback, throw yourself into the beauty of the landscapes. Woods, meadows, pastureland, etc. The pathways of Quévy will offer you nothing but happy memories.
