The news


A friend passed away


On February 9th, Yann Poirier aged 44, passed away after being gravely injured by a horse.


All of us are very upset by his death. He will be terribly missed:

-  we’ll miss the friend, our meetings and conversations……champagne after the wins in his small sitting-room with Anne-Marie.

-  we’ll miss the professional we have been working with for more than 20 years. He was a precursor and invented his job of horse breaker and pre-trainer.

How many of our good horses went through him!


Farewell Yann, we are sure you are in the paradise of horses.
