What Valtenesi’s breeders look for when selecting their mares?
There are many things to think about, and, of course, blood has an important role. But also the individual structure counts and, of course, how they performance in race movements.
“When choosing a female line-breeding we look for many things. The most important for us are pedigree, relatives performances and correct morphology.
We like broodmares with a good and strong structure, not always pretty high, but with powerful movements and speed.
They all live outside in big pastures, up and down the hills.
We have few mares of quality, in foal at the beginning or at the end of career, mix of french, Tunisian, Polish, Spanish and Russian bloodlines, used for flat races and endurance courses around the world.”
