Amy Graham is a jump rider from Australia. In 2013, she set up a stable at Brévands in the Manche département.

“I decided to come to Normandy for several reasons: space for my horses, a good quality of life, and to breed Norman horses. Plenty of them have taken part in grand prix events.”

Scott Smith, on the other hand, is from “just” crossed the Channel.  The former Team GB event rider bought an old farm near Saint Lô, where he breeds French “Selles” horses.

“We think of Normandy as the capital of French horses. We decided to breed “Selles” because it is the perfect horse for modern sports, and we’ve had a lot of success with our horses.”
