Haras des Dorrells 4.jpg

Dorrells stud

Haras des Dorrells is in the region of Le Merlerault, an area famous for the quality of the grass and therefore home to many well-known stud farms for both thoroughbreds and trotters.

Close to the A28, the stud is easily accessible, at only 1.5 hours from Deauville and close to the National Stud, the Haras du Pin.

We provide boarding for mares, youngstock and resting horses and also prepare horses for the Arqana sales in Deauville.

As breeders of both race horses and sports horses, we welcome visitors and clients from both areas of the horse industry.


There are many reasons to breed your horses in France including the climate and the pasture. However the French Breeders Premiums give a further incentive, rewarding breeders and giving a financial advantage to breed in France rather than elsewhere.

AQPS The French Chaser

The AQPS horse has gained a strong international following since the studbook was founded in 2005. The regional shows act as a shop window for the breed and a lively social occasion too. Dorrells Pierji is currently flying the flag for us in Ireland, in training with Willie Mullins. Envol Pierji, owned by J.P Mcmanus is also in Ireland and looking very promising. French chaseres, bred by English in France!
