Kenelm Arabians is a purebred Arabians horse farm located in France on the Atlantic coast. Just 15 minutes of the famous beach of La Baule, a city where the horse is king, each year one of the most important international jumping competitions takes place there. Horses are also allowed on the beach all year long!
Being just at 40 minutes from the big city of Nantes we have direct access to the International airport and we can travel easily. That’s also a good point for clients

The facility is composed of 2 big barns of 20 stables and 1 outdoor stable with 10 boxes.

We have an outdoor and an indoor arena both with professional ground, many paddocks with secure hood fencing and large pastures for the mares and foals who are turned out all day long. We have about 30 acres.

Our main goal was to create a great broodmare band. Many persons only think about the stallions but we believe that the mares are even more important. Since 1997 we have collected our ladies in France, Belgium and many of them comes from the USA.

Our foundations mares are:

Loïs ( Fiodor x Medersa El Masan)

An extremely typey flea bitten mare born in France in 1996, she is for me the epitome of the Arabian, ultra versatile and kind she was worked in western pleasure, endurance and is a fabulous trail ride fellow!

She was the first Arabian to enter our lives, she has a special place in our hearts! When we purchased her we do not have in mind to start such a large breeding operation but she perfectly fit with it! Her first foal Kenelm Lucky Star born in 2002 and sired by the Balaton’s son Narym was multiple halter winner in France before being exported to the USA for reining!

This is exactly what we want to do , producing beautiful Arabians able to shine in a large variety of disciplines. Loïs had an impressive filly in 2003 sired by multiple champion stallion Psymadré by Padrons Psyche that we plan to retain for our program.

Loïs is now in foal to our stallion Sandstorm JC by Fame VF


Anastacia AA ( Menes x Anishya by Muscat)

impressive , big and bold black bay mare born in USA in 1990. Anastacia was a phenomenal opportunity for us. We are great admirers of Menes and being able to acquire one of his best daughters in the world was just incredible.

Anastacia is twice time National Champion of Belgium, Top 5 at the European Championship and Top Ten at the World championship in Paris. She is also a broodmare supreme. One of her sons is a multiple champion stallion, our first offspring out of Anastacia is Kenelm Angelina sired by AS Natsir Apal, she is now broodmare at stud and dam in 2005 of a breathtaking liver chestnut colt by Padrons Immage named Kenelm Antares.

Anastacia also foaled a lovely dark bay colt in 2003 by Lumiar Amadeus named Kenelm Agadir who is for his new owner a top breeding stallion and dressage horse, his movement is out of this world. In 2005 Anastacia blessed us with a dark bay filly by Sandstorm who is looking for a new home! She is just fabulous!


Eden’s Esmeralda ( Balaton x Elmona by Probat ) bay mare born in Belgium in 1997.
Head hunters this one is an eye catcher! incredibly exotic head and super body with the Balaton attitude Esmeralda is one of my favourites.
She doesn’t like the show ring, her speciality is to produce star quality babies! Her first foal was born in 2002 this is Kenelm Elazri sired by Padrons Immage now in Saudi Arabia, Elazri was junior champion in France last year as well as 5th at the All nations Cup ( and class winner for the Australian judge !). Elazri has begun his breeding career this year and we can’t wait to see his first babies in 2006. He is just a lovely boy and now works under saddle in western pleasure he loves to work and has an exceptional disposition.
Esmeralda's second foal was Kenelm Psatin Lady sired by Psymadré( it was the first Psymadré offspring ever bred in Europe) , an exceptional bay filly that I sold at 4 months of age for a large amount of money. She will be a foundation mare and is planned to make the open competitions in dressage.
Esmeralda is a very easy breeder and fabulous mother she is the dam of Kenelm Egeria an incredible bay filly born in 2005. Egeria is the very first European bred foal of the exciting Ali Jamaal’s son Soho Carol. We are proud to be the European agents for Soho and we have very good results with his frozen semen. Esmeralda is back in foal to Soho for 2006.


Shamilah Samsara ( Nadir I x La Salone LTD )

Bred in France in 1993. She is pure perfection. Ultra typey mare with fabulous conformation and movement. She is the most successful Nadir I daughter.

She is out of a Salon daughter dam of a mare well known in England Lalique DS.

Samsara's show record is too long to be noted here, she was National Champion , multiple International and supreme champion, several time Top Ten at the world championship and also dam of champions. Her son Kenelm Ibn Samsara sired by Padrons Immage did a fabulous International season as a yearling and since some weeks he is now living in England, in the Kent area. We look forward for his new successes there and his future breeding career.

Samsara has been bred this year to our young Elazri and we are very excited !!


MSA Evening Song ( Parys El Jamaal x Evening Starr by Muscastar) bred in USA in 2000. This bay mare caught my heart at first sight through a picture on the internet. The rest is history! She was trained by Michael Byatt and was named Scottsdale Top Ten filly, several times unanimous champion and Regional Sweepstakes Top Five!
Evening Song is by the US National reserve champion Parys El Jamaal and out of world reserve champion mare Evening Starr. She is the full sister of The Millenium multiple US and Scottsdale champion!
Evening Song's first filly by our stallion Sandstorm, named Evening Fame was just sold to England and now resides near Manchester. She should be shown. The 2005 full sister of this filly is available for sale. Evening Song always gives extreme length of neck, big eyes and superb movement.


Of course we can’t name all of our ladies, each one has an important contribution to our programme, DSA Ghalia by Abakan is the dam of Kenelm Mona Ghalia by Monogramm who had a super show season in 2004, RA Marhaba also by Abakan is the dam of Kenelm Madison who was a National Top Five filly, Shamilah Jina Bea whom both parents are world champions is the dam of two fillies both have been sold and the first one is a very nice western winner. Khaptivating Lady by Sanadik El Shaklan and out of a Khemosabi daughter ( the dam of RSD Stdg Ovation Brazilian champion and dam of Soho Carol ! ) was bought in Wyoming as a youngster, did a great show season in 2002 and is a fabulous producer with Sandstorm! Her 2005 colt is exceptional. Rave and Roses by Rave VF ( full brother to Fame ) comes also from Wyoming, her first baby is born this year and he must be seen to be believed! Malanje is a rare daughter of the Brazilian sensation Borsalino K, she is out of the El Shaklan daughter Magic Star. Malanje is in foal to Elazri for 2006.
And some other important ladies !!!

Concerning the stallions. As we have built in 2002 an artificial insemination centre we have been able to use worldwide superstars such as Psymadré ( 2 fillies ) Lumiar Amadeus ( 2 fillies and 1 colt ) Soho Carol ( 1 filly and more to come !) we also are agent for a top endurance stallion named Arques Perspex a son of the legendary Persik. Our clients can also bring their mare to the farm and purchase the breeding of their choice, the semen arrives at our farm and we inseminate the mare, in 2003 our success rate with insemination was 100%( 5 mares bred with frozen semen) !
However the need of a special stallion was clear, many mares to breed each year and we wanted to find the right one. This is Scott Allman in Germany who introduced us to Sandstorm ( Fame VF x Sids Marjuri by Sidi Brahim ). Sandy is born in USA in 1989. He carries the blood of the giant Fame VF US National Champion and also of Sidi Brahim Spanish national champion and foundation sire of the famous Los Acres stud in California. His dam line is the perfect example of the success of the Jack Tone Ranch breeding programme being double Fadjur bred through the best stallions and tail females.

Sandy is just amazing, very tall ,wonderfully built and has the biggest eyes I have ever seen.
He was multiple champion in USA in halter, hunter pleasure, show hack, dressage and then was exported to Germany where he obtained a gold medal in Aachen. He is also Top Five at the All Nations Cup and Top Ten at the World championship in Paris. But the most important is his breeding abilities to pass his fabulous quality on to his foals.

His American sons and daughters have won in endurance, halter, hunter pleasure, English pleasure, dressage, hunt seat equitation, trail and so much more. In Europe he has a few offspring among them BS Specific multiple show champion also gold medal winner and recently class winner in Wels Austria. His first babies born in France are just yearlings. A filly has been sold to England for show and breeding, a colt is sold for endurance and show, and a filly sold for being the perfect all around friend.

Sandstorm is a perfect gentleman, he loves humans, lives in the barn among the mares, lives outside also among the mares, can be ridden by children bareback and bridleless. He is just the exact picture of his pedigree: generations of horses selected for their beauty and versatility. Our clients always love the Sandy babies because they are so sweet natured and lovely. We have retained a daughter of him out of our Sanadik daughter.
Sandy is also my special trail ride partner!

Kenelm Elazri is the new kid on the block! He is just three this year and we are expecting 5 foals by him in 2006, this will be a special moment for us!

Kenelm Khemostorm 2005 bay colt
( Sandstorm x Khaptivating Lady by Sanadik El Shaklan )
Tthe future replacement for Sandstorm.

We have many exciting plans for the future, especially concerning the stallions. Our biggest pride is to sell horses who are becoming for their new owners their “once in a lifetime horses” our selection on the disposition and conformation allows us to propose horses able to shine in many disciplines but above all to become fabulous and trusting friends.
We always have special foals and some youngsters for sale, as well as sometimes broodmares in foal.
Most of our clients are now close friends and we enjoy many hours spending around the horses, sharing special moments with foalings, riding and so much more.

My favourite moment is the foaling season with all these new little creatures, each one being a little miracle, and I sit in the straw beside the mare and I say that I am a really lucky person and that my job is just fabulous!

Please come by and pay us a visit to discover our little piece of paradise!
