Haras des étangs

the tison family began its activity at the haras des etangs in the 70’s. michel tison, after several years of competition riding, decided to make a living from his passion.

his two sons, matthieu and nicolas, are now running the family business, which includes multiple activities: breeding, valorizing of sport horses and trade, boarding, coaching, horse shows and a riding school.


we began breeding in the 70’s, when michel tison started looking at the origins and genetics of pré catelan (the father of his champion, amour de courtieux).

the haras des etangs has produced many horses over the years, many of which have competed at the highest level in show jumping and three-day events.

one of our horses, querel des etangs, a great grand-prix winner, is a major genetic strain of the haras de talma breeding.

Today, in collaboration with the Elevage d’Arthenay, we are striving for excellence by crossing our best mares with the world top performing stallions and by purchasing promising foals.
