Châteaurenard - Vallon de la Roquette - Provençal Tradition - In May - Dates and program to be confirmed

Il y a quelques années, le cheval de trait était l'auxiliaire indispensable aux hommes pour transporter, tracter, travailler la terre... Mais depuis la mécanisation de l'agriculture, nombreux sont ceux qui ne le connaissent qu'en tant qu'auxiliaire d'apparat pour les fêtes.

Les associations organisatrices des charrettes ont décidé d'instituer "la Journée du cheval de trait." Les amoureux du cheval de trait se retrouvent au magnifique Vallon de la Roquette afin de voir les chevaux et leurs charretiers pratiquer quelques travaux d'autrefois et admirer ainsi la puissance, la maniabilité et la fidélité de ces chevaux lourds.

Le cheval est mis à l'honneur par :
le labour, où la profondeur, la rectitude et le retournement du sillon seront notés
l'attelage, où maniabilité dans un circuit balisé avec un temps chronométré sera jugé avec pour cette épreuve le reculement
le traineau
et enfin le débardage où une bille de bois sera tirée par le cheval qui effectuera le parcours balisé au milieu des bois.

Vous pourrez admirer ce compagnon fidèle et travailleur inlassable de nos campagnes lors des différentes épreuves.
