Etreham Stud is located in the Normandie region near Bayeux, in an area called “le Bessin”. For almost a century, this land has had a great record for producing famous champions. Groupe 1 winners such as Maximova, Urban Sea, Septieme Ciel, Anabaa Blue, King’s Best and Baiser Volé have all been raised at Etreham. Family owned since the 40’s, the stud is curently managed by the fourth generation of the “de Chambure”.
The fields stretch out of sight over 250 hectares. The pastern managment is the highest level: every year, each paddock is the subject of a soil sampling to monitor the quality of the soil and fill any deficiencies. The proximity of the sea and the micro-climate enjoyed by the region, help maintain the quality of grass throughout the year.
