Stud of Ecajeul


In the heart of the Pays d'Auge, a few kilometers from Crèvecœur-en-Auge, Jean-Luc and Isabelle Bara are happy to welcome visitors to their family stud farm, the cradle of thoroughbreds for over 70 years. In this green setting of about fifty hectares, mares and stallions coexist for the reproduction and breeding of foals, the breaking in and the pre-training.

It is one of the few stud farms to open its doors for a guided tour of the heart of its facilities. It all starts in the courtyard, with a presentation of the Pays d'Auge and the quality of its terroir for breeding. During the visit, the entire life cycle of the horse is explained (mating, birth in spring, training, racing) as well as the riding trades. But what calls out the most is the original and famous method used by Jean-Luc for breaking up: the method of whisperers, revealed in the film "The man who whispered in the ears of horses". Intriguing !
