The Manuel Heleno Stud 

The Coudelaria M. Heleno - Haras Biarritz comes from the famous Stud of Guilherme Correia Gyão, rescued from the revolution of April 1975 for being exported to Spain a little time before.

In 1977 the stud moved to France and on the 24th March 1978, was founded and registered there as "Société Civile Haras Biarritz". In June of 1982, all the horses returned to Portugal and are now permanently based there.

The pure Arab horses of the Gyão Stud were without doubt some of the best in the world. In these horses you could trace back to the two best studs of this time: the Duque de Veragua Stud (descendant of Christopher Columbus) and the Crabbet Park Stud (founded by Lady Blunt, grand-daughter of Lord Byron). Gyaõ Stud had also magnificent stallions from the Coudelaria Nacional (Portuguese National Stud), whose selection has been known as one of the hardest ever carried out ( see " Portuguese Arabian " ).

It was the outstanding quality of these horses which made the current owner decide to buy the Arabian mares.

Because we knew that the Pure Blood Arabian is the foundation of nearly all breeds (like the thoroughbred for example), and also an improver of all the others, we crossed the Arabian mares with exceptional Selle Français and thoroughbred stallions (see bloodlines), resulting in a competition record which exceeded all expectations, which you can see from our  results .

Over the many decades that the Manuel Heleno Stud - Haras Biarritz - has existed, the rigorous selection process followed during all these years, the initial excellent quality of the Pure Arab mares and the selection of notable Selle Français and thoroughbred stallions, are the principal secrets behind the outstanding quality obtained.
