Abrivado competition: A festival to honour the manades in Vauvert
For all those of you who are keen on horses or bulls, get ready for the only abrivado competition in the Gard! In Provence, the manades, herds guided by elegant horse-riders who are also known as gardians are celebrated. During this competition between several manades, you can admire their successive passes, full of verve and dexterity: each manade is judged on its apparel, harnessing, speed and bull-running. Riders, you will be the best guides!
Because in Vauvert we enjoy festivities, a peña and a folk group are a must in the traditional competition. You can also watch the procession of beautiful carriages and a course camarguaise with the Trophée des As for the winner, and of course, visit the local produce and fine crafts fair!
