A rich horse-drawn heritage
The National Studs, and in particular that of Le Pin, own the major part of the French public horse-drawn heritage. They gather between 320 and 350 vehicles, the oldest of which date back to the middle of the 19th century. These vehicles, historically linked to the operation of the stud farms, were essential until the beginning of the 20th century for their daily activities of moving people and transporting materials and various loads, which were then totally dependent on animal traction. Their horse-drawn fleet, therefore, consists mainly of service or sports cars - such as large model station wagons, dressage skeletons, stable station wagons, English carts, omnibuses, and tilburys - intended for the dressage, exercise, and training of horses to daily works. To these were added more luxurious city, travel, or leisure vehicles donated by owners who no longer had use of them.
