Les prés de Modello

In spite of our knowledge of horses, when we decided to start breeding this extraordinary horse breed, we were forced to start learning again lots of things!

Indeed, though we were able to judge the standart of a "selle français" horse or that of an "Anglo Arab" one, it was very difficult for us, we when started getting interested in this AMHA breed (Amercian Miniature Horse Association), to really identify good from average or bad standart for these small horses.


The standart for mini horses is more difficult to catch and to understand. It is only study trips of the breed in the United States and visits of a number of breeding farms that we were able to be sure that we were making the right decisions for our breeding program.

We have developed through the years relationships of trust and friendship with the best American breeders. These relationships have enabled us to acquire the producers that we wanted to create the basis of our breeding program.


We would like to share our experience with amateurs in order to help them avoid the pitfalls and desapointments of the first horse buys.

We will be happy to coach them in the choices that best match their aspirations: breeding or show horses or pet horses simply to see and live with these pure wonders of horses who can be so gorgeous when they are properly chosen!


We cannot pretend satisfying all desires but we can help those who wish it in the accomplishement of their project.

Professional breeders can find at Modello Horse farm foals of an irreproachable quality who will bring them, thanks to their exceptional bloodlines, the new blood they need.

All breeders pretend having excellent bloodlines but what is important is to know the extent of the dilution of these bloodlines. At Modello, we have a son of Buckeroo as well as daughters. And we have a son and daughters of Champion Farms Nighthawk.

As for Blue Boy and Gold Melody Boy, we find their bloodline in many pedigrees but at Modello Horse Farm, our Blue Boy and Gold Melody Boy are have a percentage of concentration of 50 to 75%! This is what we call "Doublebred". Not to mention bloodlines of Alamos Impressive Streaker or Reflections or even Top Banana or Patton which all have a precise reason to be included in our very strict breeding program.


At the moment we have 120 AMHA horses among which 28 broodmares and 8 stallions, the others being two year old or yearling horses. In 2008 we had 9 foals. This year we had 24: 13 males and 11 females. We are totally happy!
