Coudrettes Stud – French saddlebred
The HDC stud farm is located in Pays d’Auge, in Normandy. Composed mainly of Selle Francais horses of excellent origin. Created in 2006, the stud farm was built up around competitive show jumping mares of excellent origin. The foals participate in local breeding competitions before moving on to regional competition and then to the national competition which takes place during the CSI5* in Lyon. Of interest: in 2011 Uthope de la Roque was 3rd in the French Championships for 3 year old geldings, and in 2010 Twenty du Plessis & Tallyne de la Pomme both made the rankings. Arabella Mail and Atlanta Semilly have just begun breeding competitions for 2 year olds and have finished 1st and 2nd respectively in local competition and are on their way to regional qualification.
A young and dynamic team who share a common passion for horses and for jumping competitions; dedicated to producing quality work and to the welfare of the horses. Under the technical direction of Julie Gadal is an exceptional team made up Sarah Kohl, Rémi Morteau, Nicolas Dubois and Julien Cavelier.
In an exceptional setting in the heart of Normandy, two hours from Paris, our facilities are modern and top of the range: arena 40×70, manège 30×60, lunging ring and the Avraincourt ring, a walker, paddocks …
We entrusted our top level horses to three of the best French riders: Patrice Delaveau, Kevin Staut and Olivier Guillon.
These riders are ‘hors pair.’ Our team horses are recognizable in that they each have an identical competition affix: *HDC. These horses represent a significant investment in top level sport in order to enable the French team to participate in the most prestigious of international competitions such as the 2012 Olympic Games in London or the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Caen.
Orient Express, Silvana and Ornella Mail, have been preselected by the FFE for the OG 2012/WEG 2014.
Haras des Coudrettes has entrusted the horses still in training on the national circuit to Julie Gadel and Rémi Morteau. On the Junior circuit to Dorian Perron-Pette and on the Cadet circuit to Chrystal Perron-Pette.
But whether at home in France or abroad at CSI 1* to 5* or on Normandy soil, these riders make up a single, united team of riders working alongside one another.
Our objective is to enable Patrice Delaveau to regain his place in the top 30 and today HDC seeks to invest in the long-term. To this end, we signed a contract with Patrice in October 2010 and Patrice now rides exclusively for HDC. Following Baritchou DBT, Ornella Mail and Orient Express, Lacrimoso 3, then Quenndal de Lojou joined Patrice at the stables.
Kevin Staut and Silvana and more recently Rêveur de Hurtebise, also represent HDC at the top international shows.Olivier Guillon chose a young horse, United Love to prepare for the future at HDC.
Haras des Coudrettes now has a quality team of horses capable not only of particiating at the major competitions but also of ensuring the future ; All HDC horses are recognisable in that they carry the *HDC affix.
