The good life in Anjou
Founded over 40 years ago by Joel and Claudie Poirier, The Écurie des Mottes has become one of the best French breeds, especially with the AQPS. Over the years, breeding has become more and more oriented towards jumping and great successes with horses like Adriana des Mottes (Mares Novice Hurdle Championship Gr.1), Farlow des Mottes (Prix Murat Gr.2, Prix Robert de Clermont-Tonerre Gr.3), or more recently Pamela des Mottes (Girofla L. Prize). In 2022, 12 ponies, 8 males and 4 females will be born at this 2022 Écurie des Mottes.
