Route des Etalons 2019: One Thousand Thanks!

January 21, 2019

There were over one thousand visitors who came see our stallions during the 2019 Route des Étalons. Thank you! We were delighted to present our stallions for the coming breeding season, including MEKHTAAL, our new recruit.

Each year, this hugely enjoyable weekend allows us to open our doors to our clients, and it is also an opportunity for the public to discover the breeding industry. This educational dimension is very important to the team at Haras de Bouquetot.

Congratulations to Mr Roland Niee, who won the nomination to MEKHTAAL in the raffle draw. His alternate is Philippe Pannetier.

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2020!

Sébastien Desmontils reflected on the weekend:

« The Route des Étalons was once again a hugely popular and busy weekend, allowing us to open our doors to not only our clients, but also a wider public. The latter is an interesting and important part of the weekend, allowing members of the public to discover our industry and hopefully incite their interest enough that one day, perhaps, they will become part of it!

We welcomed an excited and enthusiastic crowd, who came to see the stallions, including MEKTHAAL, our new recruit for 2019. To see their appetite for discovery, for the upcoming matings, the breeding season, in a context that can appear difficult when listening and reading various media, is a huge source of motivation and hope for the future!»
