The continuity of a French Family Tradition in South Africa
Xavier and Nathalie have had a stud farm in France since 1982 and the passion that they share with their 4 children led them to South Africa in the early part of 2008. They fell in love with this marvelous country and moreover with the green KwaZulu-Natal Midlands where they decided, while keeping their French breeding operation, to buy this lovely property and share their time between both countries.
Xavier and Nathalie have had great success in France and among a lot of good horses bred on their Farm is the champion mare Gorella, winner of the Gr1 Beverley D Stakes in America as well another Gr1 winner Top of the Sky.
They have been among the top consignors of yearlings in the 80s and 90s and now have a private stock of mares that they send to the ‘top’ European stallions.
Yearlings are now consigned by different leading stud farms.
