Cher Epoux started his career as a stallion in 2015 after his first French Champion of Selle Français Stallions title obtained at the end of the year of 2 years. Since then, more than 100 mares have been bred and this although the horse only covers in frozen semen (being dedicated exclusively to sport). To date, the oldest are 6 years old in 2022.
Below you will find information about them. First, we present some of its products, born at the Chevannes Stables and elsewhere, whose owners have kindly sent us photos. This will give you an overview of the model and the points of force transmitted by Cher Epoux. Second, we will resume the performance of its products, although its first generations are still very young.

Born in 2017 at Mr Yves de Soultrait’s stud-farm
Under Chiara Autin’s saddle (recently crowned French eventing Champion, and previously European Junior Champion 2018 and European Junior bronze medallist 2017), the dark chestnut born at Mr Yves de Soultrait’s stud-farm, owned by Eric & Stephanie de Soultrait, shows great skills for eventing.
The grand-mother of Hello Sir, Good Joye, produced 7 foals including 3 performers with a sport index above 130 (Qui Suis Je and Risotto ISO 137, Belle Joye ICC 141 ridden by Hervé Letheux). His great-grand-mother is the famous Une Ivresse, mother of the 1.50m performer and stallion I Am Boy. This is the maternal bloodline of Potemkine (ISO 145), Igor des Saccarts (ISO 148), Lafrica (ISO 143), Qaballeros (ICC 154). We also find bunches of racing winners (steeple-chase and flat) like Temerson (ICO 146), Quibala (ICO 149), Beloa des Sacart (ICO 145), and the great Monoalco (ICO 160), winner of more than 800 K€ prize money, winner of Gr.I races. A cocktail that gives a horse full of blood and visibly very comfortable on obstacles!
