This small town is famous for its castle, offered by Louis XV to his mistress Jeanne Le Normant d'Etiolles. Pompadour is also renowned as the home of France's National Stud, as well as a Mare Farm, unique in France. The cradle of the Anglo-Arab breed, Pompadour has been the headquarters of an Equestrian Institute since 1976, and is the venue for several famous horse races. Horse-racing, cross-country racing and steeple-chases take place here from the last weekend in June to September.
