Maximising the potential of our young horses

     From sweet little foal to CEI winner lies the long road of years of care,education and training.The breeders need riders to bring recognition to their stud names,the riders need breeders to provide them with HORSES with POTENTIAL: because however well ridden and handled, a donkey will always remain a donkey!

We are essentially breeders,but over the past few years we have set up partnerships with several top-level riders,whom we would like to thank for their work.We therefore organise on our studfarms the different stages of education of our youngstock,and bringing on of our 4-6 year-olds,before entrusting some of them to top-level riders,matching them up with the various bloodlines and temperaments of our horses.

After basic training,our young horses are brought on by doing trail rides, particularly on the 160km Florac circuit, and they take part as often as possible in short endurance races and the National Novice Horse Finals at Uzès.These stages of long and slow work coupled with short qualifying competitive rides fit in well with our breeding activities,and speed up considerably the work for the riders, who thus pick up 6 or 7 year-olds who are well "equipped" but unspoilt.

In 2011, we shall be particularly following the careers of Prao de Sauveterre, Qassem de Sauveterre, Rebelle Larzac and Pragmatik Larzac at the stables of Sunny Demedy and Delphine Johnson, Persée du Sauveterre and Piuma with Cécile Miletto and Laurent Mosti, and Nawal du Sauveterre and Resistencia Larzac in the hands of Lysiane Préveiraud and Hubert Terris.

Seranne Larzac Stud Farm

 About fifteen years ago,our collaboration with leading Cevennes breeders like Francis Poujol and Yannick Vassas brought us the "Persik" genetics: the results speak for themselves! Mediatik Larzac is a direct descendant,his mother Ilam bint Attilah being the fruit of the loan of Fr. Poujol's Attilah/Persik to produce a foal by Rumel el Masan,our foundation sire. Covered by Branik, acquired as a colt from Y. Vassas, Ilam produced Mediatik Larzac, 2008 World Champion 8 years novice horses at Compiègne,also winner of Badajoz** in 2009.

Sauveterre Stud Farm

étalon endurance

On the vast semi-arid expanses of the Causse de Sauveterre, not far from the legendary Florac 160km trail, the Ecuries du Sauveterre Endurance Horse Stud Farm is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary!

Jean Basset had the foresight to bring together three Grandes Dames (Diardob, Jerezana and Dja'lah) who brought great influence and success to this emblematic stud farm of Persikland endurance horses. He managed  to keep the best youngsters, and entrust them, at the right time, to experienced riders, resulting in immediate success ! (see results).

Today,Jean and Dany watch over the prospects of about thirty of the descendants of these endurance foundation bloodlines worthy of bearing the Sauveterre name of their predecessors...

Endurance Arab Stud Farms

jelouamaria

With one farm situated on the Sauveterre Causse in Lozere,and the other on the Larzac Causse in the department of Herault,our studs have been endurance-orientated for the last twenty years or so. We have had the good fortune to be able to build from the very best origins,which included several Grandes Dames, and of course the legendary Persik and his best progeny,enriched by the introduction of other notable bloodlines.

 

AN EXCEPTIONAL REGION

TWO TOP CLASS STUDS

The Causses Majeurs (vast limestone upland ranges) form not only a natural reserve of exceptional animal and plant biodiversity,but are also ancient stockbreeding areas.

With the Cevennes National Park's purchase of the stallion Persik in 1974 and thanks to the dedication of a handful of enthusiastic breeders,and the legendary 160km Florac race,the Causses became the Birthplace of Equestrian Endurance.
