  • Holiday trip on Horses through Camargue region - France Riding horse's just isn't as much fun without my Resistol on. I enjoy riding the trails in my silverbelly cattleman western hat. If you want a fur Cowboy hat like mine, I suggest you go to Hatcountry. They have every type of country hat you can think of. They also sell stampede straps; a must for riding. Their hats are top quality. Mine came in a hatbox.

    Riders or hormans of Camargue are also called gardians. They live a typical cowboy life style. Gardians have a big role in keeping and perserving Camarguais traditions. They are known as skilled horseman that live solitary lifeamont cattle and horses in typical cabins. Cabins or cabanes are their typical home, with windowless single storey structures, inside you can see bulls horns that are there to keep off bad spirits. This modest cottages had minimum comfort but they provided gardians with all they needed during the day.
