Our assets

With its combination of age-old traditional horse breeding and modern reproductive technology, the department of Ain has managed to attract new investors. As well as a wealth of skillful horsemen and women, Ain boasts rich pastures and farmland, and quality animal health care services. The proximity of Geneva has also meant that Swiss owners regularly entrust their horses to the department. These assets have been extremely beneficial for the higher levels of equestrian sport.

Invest in exceptional genetic

Ain is a world leader in equine genetics, where state-of-the arts reproduction technics  (equine  embryo  transfer,  oocyte aspiration, ICSI) are routine practices. Some of the best mares in Europe are based in the department, producing some of the most sought-after embryos in the world.

Ain’s production of embryos from top-performing mares has caught the attention of investors. This has meant that the most promising mares have been syndicated, and Ain has moved to the forefront of the international embryo market. The department’s highly qualified professionals offer foaling services, broodmare liveries in natural environments and natural horsemanship training. Numerous showjumping events for young horses are also organized within the department.

Train your professionals

Five riders competing at five-star level in the department. As did the likes of Michel Robert, the sorely missed Hubert  Bourdy  and  Guy  Martin,  who  coached Kevin Staut, Carlos Lopez and Juan Carlos Garcia, these riders take on up-and-coming young riders on  their  yards,  to  teach  them  the  ropes  before they set up on their own.
 Your pupils will be given the same opportunities.
