The horse museum at Chantilly

The estate overlooks the Grandes Écuries (Great Stables) that contains The Living Museum of the Horse - dedicated to equine art and culture. It also contains some live horses. Our our visit there we saw a wide variety of interesting things - carts, a tricycle, spurs, models, etc. There was someone doing some horse hoof repair.
