An Effective Collaboration

After more than 35 years of selective breeding by Sylvain Massa he is proud to be able to provide for sale one hundred horses aged from 6 months up to 3 years old.

Functional and secure, our facilities assures tranquility and serenety during the weaning and the different handling process.

These horses are separated after weaning into two groups according to gender. These groups are very important for their future development and character building. Under the watchful eye of Anne Sophie De La Gatinais all the youngsters needs are closely monitored.

Special Feature

The hay produced on the Crau plaines enjoys a special distinction of origin (A O C). This is the first feed to receive such an honour. Its packaging can be recognised by a white and red string, The history of these fields dates back to the sixteenth century and the first system of irrigation was put in place by Adam Craponne.The waters of the Durance River were taken and transported to Crau. Gradually secondary canals have been redirected so now there exists a superficial network of several hundred kilometres which irrigate the Crau surface.
