We think that you are knowing that the Appaloosa horse was originally a horse that was primarily bred and selected by the NEZ PERCES Native American tribe and their great Chief Joseph. Then these unfortunate horses were almost entirely wiped out, until the day when, a lover of this breed, Mr. Thompson ended up crossing the United States up and down, in order to find live Appaloosa horses and thus start breeding this breed again. With that the APPALOOSA HORSE CLUB USA was created.

At our Clos des Bruyeres we have been breeding Appaloosa for over 30 years. We prefer lines mixed with Quarter Horse blood, another American breed. This gives a certain elegance and aptitude for competition! But any competition horse will also be an excellent horse for leisure.

Appaloosa brood mares

Our brood mares have very good origins and a ZEN attitude. They pass their character and their confidence in humans to their foals. Covering, foaling or weaning foals with us is never a problem. Our foals are mentally balanced, with good conformation, good bone structure and attractive colors.
