We strive to raise exceptional horses!

  • Well socialized
  • Exposed to a variety of environments
  • Easy to handle
  • Self-assured and gentle
  • Keen to learn
  • Proud yet respectful of their masters!




2012 to 2017: I worked on the board of the Quebec Horse Association, as a director at the beginning and then as secretary-treasurer. All the efforts I have invested have been for the cause of the Canadian horse. My work has always been stimulating, active and very rewarding.

2012: List all the AQCC newspapers since its foundation, digitize them and make them available on the AQCC website.

This work resulted in the production of two leaflets which were distributed in more than 2,000 copies. (12)
