Princely picnic at Chantilly or equestrian opera
While watching the painting of the « Refreshments served during hunts », who has never dreamed of a princely picnic in the forest, with hand-painted crockery, tablecloth in a traditional style and silverware.
Living in Chantilly, Maïté Boyer has always had an eye for the world of the horse. After a carreer of ceramist, she decided to organise luxury unusual events around the horse.
The princely picnic is inspired by those organised by François Vatel, majordomo of Prince Louis II de Bourbon-Condé at the Château de Chantilly. From the decoration to the refinement of the event, nothing is left to chance in respect of the French Art de Vivre, whatever the demands.
Equestrian stuntman, Mario Luraschi has played in two hundred films. In love with historic heritage, he is living in a farm, belonging to the Institut de France and has his own stable. His great mastery of equestrian sport raised his desire to become involved in the events proposed by A Cheval chez les Princes : assist at a dressage training of horses, visit the stables, discover his private collection of costumes, saddles and objects to Red Indians is possible on request.
Is it chimeric to imagine a songstress, dressed in a 17th Century costume, singing on a riding horse ? When arriving to the clearing where they were awaited for a princely picnic, the riders got the surprise to listen to an equestrian opera, in the middle of the Chantilly forest. Surreal.
