Rose Arabian Horses - at home here for over 500 years
In the 15th century, Rose Manor Farm, was given to Louis XIV’s Chief Farrier as his home. 300 years later, Rose Manor became home to Capitain Bas Roger, a dutch sea captain, famous for saving the entire crew of a stricken English ship. In recognition, The Queen of England - Her Royal Highness Queen Victoria - named a rose in his honour. The very same rose that adorns the front of the manor, the local village, and now our Rose Arabians.
Hope to welcome you soon.
Carole, Jean-Paul and Francois Artur
Rose Arabians love horses and love endurance racing.
We raise Arabian and French saddle horses in our own special way, and go racing whenever we can.
Based just 30 minutes from Cherbourg, in the heart of the Cotentin national park
And a stones throw from the Normandy beaches, Rose Arabians is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Carole and Jean Paul Artur.
Originally from the UK
Experienced horsewoman Carole, met and fell in love with traditional french farmer, Jean Paul. Together with their son Francois, they farm, raise horses and offer great riding holidays.
In spring and summer
Our young horses run free in a marsh herd, growing up in a completely natural setting. In winter, we select horses to train in our purpose built manege, nuturing gradually - never forcing, using patience, understanding and moving on only when the horse is ready. We also socialise and show our young horses at the Arabian shows in St Lo and Lamballe, Endurance shows at Vatteville la Rue and Le Pin, and Selle Francais inter regional shows at St. Lo and Combourg.
Quiet, confident, reliable and happy horses
Who ride beautifully and bravely, but don’t behave irratically or scare easily.
