Haras de Hus

Founded in 2005 by French entrepreneur Xavier Marie, Haras de Hus focused on high performance dressage and show jumping start.

Show jumping rider Kevin Staut became the world number one and won  silver medal for France at the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington, USA, on Silvana de Hus.  He won individual silver on Conrad de Hus at the 2015 European championships in Aachen.
