In 2016 I became aware of the American Miniature Horse Association (AMHA) while in charge of the construction of stables and other facilities at EBF’s new farm. It was during this time that I fell in love with these charming miniature horses.

My interest in the AMHA grew as I watched Cedric working and training his horses over the months I spent at the farm. This led me to purchase my first horse in the summer of 2017. This horse was EBF John’s POL Bright Horizon, and he became a very special horse for me.

I believed that with time, dedication to training and Cedric’s instruction that he would be a winner. I presented him during the 2018, 2019 and 2020 show seasons to my great satisfaction.

At this point my desire to show horses grew and in 2021, I became a professional trainer. The show season of 2022 will be my first complete season as a professional trainer, and I look forward to accomplishing the best possible results for the horses and their owners.

In 2022, I applied and was approved to be the AMHA International Honorary Director for France. I am proud for AMHA’s confidence in me to assist the American Miniature Horse Association owners.

When I met Cédric in 2010, I felt in love with the miniature horses that I didn’t know before. At the beginning I went in the shows with Cédric and showed a few horses in amateur. Years after years I wanted to learn a lot about the minis and how to take care of them.
Since we arrived at the farm in 2017, I decided in my free time to do different activities for children in the village like for Easter, Halloween, Christmas …..

I also organize pony parties for children who come to meet the minis usually for the first time. So, when I’m not at work I do activities like birthday, parties with the minis….

The recipe for our success is based on the simplicity of the activities and a real passion for miniature horses. I had the pleasure to welcome families who wants come again because they loved their private visit. Seeing these children with sparkling eyes touched by the gentleness of our horses is always a real pleasure and the reward of a successful performance.

Hi, my name is Nehla, I’m 19 years old and work at EBF since now some months. Before that I’ve been a student for EBF during two years for my school. I learned at EBF what was a Miniature Horse and I discovered them at this farm.

Since I’m a child I’m passionate about horses and I’m really proud and happy to be able to be a part of EBF. I enjoy working every day with the horses, the work team is really passionate and fun to work with.

I really love to work with the minis and knowing them all. I wish you a good virtual visit on the website and wish to meet you in real one day for a farm visit.

EBF arrived in my village “Hendecourt les Ransart” in 2017, I’m working as agricultural employee in different villages’s farms.

I didn’t know what was an American Miniature Horse.
Animals lover, first I watched this miniature horses in the fields around the farm. After that I met Cédric and Filipe who looked for another people working for EBF. With the time I learned from them both how to take care of horses, foalings, etc….
