About us

On the slopes of Toul, between vineyard and crystal, at the crossroads of Europe (Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany and Switzerland to 2 hours), the Akhal Stud found his haven of peace. In this region steeped in history (Toul, Celtic Leucques capital of Gaul Belgium), the Akhal-Teke Horse, whose origins date back to the fifth century B.C., has its place. Stallions, mares and foals can relax in meadows, paddocks and work in the indoor and outdoor manege.

These horses, whose line reminiscent of greyhounds, with silver or golden highlights, delight in the eastern regions: the hilly terrain allow them to exploit their natural balance and clay - limestone soils give their all minerals and trace elements necessary for their proper development.

Heloise GHIRARDI aims to elevate and promote the breed in France and Europe. His breeding wants amateur and family: each foal is handled from an early age and followed very closely.

 Akhal  Stud seeks to promote the breed by participating in events such as :

  • Breed Championships in France and Europe.
  • the french national championship for colored horses
  • regional and national breeding competition SHF 
  • regional, national and european equestrian fairs

and also to develop the breed through sports competitions :

  • the competitions for young horses SHF : in endurance and show jumping  (up to national final at Fontainbleau)
  • for adults : in Hunter, endurance and show jumping (up to 110 cm GP)

She is also investing in Europe : Member of the Association Atha (Akhal Teke Horse Association), Member of ATZF Association (Achal Tekkiner Zuchter und Freunde) and Honorary Member of the Association ATI (Akhal Teke Italia) with which she regularly has exchanges.
