From the Grand Siècle to the Imperial period
The creation of the Haras National du Pin at the beginning of the 18th century responded to the royal desire to produce the most efficient horses for transport, agricultural work, military cavalry, and the court of Versailles. Its main activity was to select breeds and produce horses, the finest specimens of which were intended for breeding.
