SAINT-ARNOULT Longines Deauville International Equestrian Complex > February 15th and 16th

PRESENTATION AND 'EXPERTISE DES ÉTALONS' OF THE ZANGERSHEIDE STUD FARM

The best European horses meet at the Longines Deauville International Equestrian Complex!

For the 7th consecutive year, a stallion selection known as ‘expertise d’étalons’ is organized by the Zangersheide studbook at the Longines Deauville International Equestrian Complex. During the weekend, about 50 males aged 3 or more are carefully inspected by the international jury to obtain the “Z” certification. The candidates are judged on 4 tests: model, paces, free jumping abilities, under-saddle abilities.

The 3-yr-old stallions are judged in hand and in free jumping performances. The 4-yr-old stallions are judged in hand and in free jumping or under-saddle jumping on the same track or on a standard course. The 5-yr-old to 12-yr-old stallions in hand and jumping a standard course. The 13-yr-old and older stallions in hand and on official sporting performances.

It’s a great opportunity for the public to attend a sort of equestrian “fashion parade”!

About Zangersheide

Zangersheide, before becoming renowned for its expertise, belonged to jumping-specialized stables, created in the 1960s in Lanaken (Belgium). These stables progressively turned into prestigious stud farms. In 1992, the owners founded the Zangersheide studbook, a French catalogue that mentions the best European stallions.
