Tre Balzane stud – Anglo Arab – Arabian horse – Egyptian
The Tre Balzane stud farm is located directly adjacent to the medieval town of Castel Ritaldi in Umbria, where there is not just the best olive oil, good wine and other Italian delicacies to be found. Here, at the foot of Monte Martano, Anglo-Arabs were bred since 1987 and pure Arabs since 1988. From 1992 onwards, only Straight Egyptian lines were bred.
The climate in Central Italy is particularly favourable for breeding Arabians because for most of the year it is dry and warm. Because of that, the stud horses can grow up outdoors for the most part, roaming their pastures and paddocks in small herds.
The stud has a covering station and guest boxes for mares and foals at its disposal. Horses of all breeds are broken to the saddle here using horse-friendly methods. All the horses grow up in close contact with people. Stallions and mares are broken to saddle and trained for riding at ages 3 to 4, with classic methods used.
The hilly countryside, with its rich woodlands and lack of traffic, is particularly suitable for training long distance horses for competitions.
