Title 3



Estupenda HN

It all started on June 6th  last year while in my spare time I was looking at the Facebook news feed. I had been following Haras de Niaster for a long time and I literally fell in love with Estu (for short) during a video posted. Of course not reasonable on my part as I already own two horses. But there you go... the heart has its reasons that reason ignores! After a test and two more than conclusive visits as well as the meeting with Jack and Pierre whom I will never thank enough for their kindness and for welcoming me into their paradise, my princess joined me in July.

So a bit like in The Little Prince with the fox... 'I am for you only a fox like a hundred thousand foxes. But, if you tame me, we will need each other. You will be unique in the world for me. I will be unique in the world for you.

We have both gotten used to each other and my trio gets along very well.

Estu is such a sensitive and endearing mare, I am overwhelmed.

Thank you again for allowing me to own it!

Salento HN

At the beginning of June 2023, I heard about this superb breeding of Spanish horses. I have always been attracted to this breed. So I browsed their site and their social networks. I immediately fell in love with the pretty Salento HN which was not yet budded at that time. I couldn't stop looking at all the new photos and videos about him, but I always told myself that I no longer wanted a young horse and even less a gray one. One day, I saw that he was starting to break in and then I broke down and told myself that it was him!

My super mom surprised me by making an appointment and I went to see him a few days later. It seemed obvious... On July 4, the wonderful Salento HN joined my stables for my greatest happiness!

A month later, he is still incredible and terribly kind, which makes him even more beautiful!

I can never thank Jacqueline and Pierre enough for their kindness and kindness! The love they give to their horses is so evident in Salento’s behavior! My little dream horse...

Poderoso HN

Horses have been part of Clara's life since she was a little girl. After doing psychomotor training on horseback and pony club, Clara made dressage her favourite discipline. She was able to learn all the basics with her Haflinger pony, Stitch, who came to join the family during the confinement period. After a first season of competitions, we discovered the equicadet programme, among other things, which prompted us to start looking for a horse for Clara so that she could continue to develop. 

We followed the advice of the late Pierre Boulanger and his wife Colette and discovered the Haras de Niaster. 

We have to admit that Clara immediately fell in love with the beautiful Poderoso HN. After a few trials, we decided to embark on this new adventure. 

For more than two months now, Poderoso HN and Clara have been developing a wonderful bond in their work, under the watchful eye of a super coach, as well as in their daily care. And to top it all off, Podé has made friends with Stitch, much to everyone's delight. 

The new couple's objectives are to be selected for the equicadets at the end of 2023, to take part in the MCI in 2024 and finally to join the classic circuit at national level in 2025. 


Poderoso is such a nice horse to have around every day, with his own personality, well trained (even if he sometimes makes little jokes to Clara, hihihi) and we are already looking forward to all the great experiences that he and Clara will have together

Rania HN

After long, unsatisfactory searches, by word of mouth, we came into contact with the Haras du Niaster. A great meeting with a very professional and passionate couple! Our exchanges multiplied, I had a rather difficult search! That is to say a sport quality horse with blood but also a calm mind, goes everywhere and respectful! A bit of the impossible! Well no ! We met Rania HN, a 3 and a half year old mare. Age held me back a little, but in front of this mare who was so well educated and of such good quality, I tried the adventure! We took the time. Jaqueline and Pierre were so kind, attentive to us and so generous! Truly unique professionals in all sincerity. After the trials and even the joy of walks in the forest, we bought Rania HN, this mare so sweet, devoted to her rider, of dream quality and goes everywhere. She is so kind, affectionate, plays games with a lot of respect and is easy to get along with. After a week, she went on walks alone and without any worries. My daughter and I are so happy to have crossed her path. The professionals around us are drooling over this beautiful model! She is slender, full of pep and flexibility and a dream hindquarters! As I said before, I didn't buy a quality mare, I also bought a little piece of the Niaster. A truly recommendable Breeding.

Romero HN

“You don’t meet any horse by chance. It's either a mission, or a chance, or true love. It is quite rare for a horse to meet these three conditions. It's a real gift and that's what happened with you, my dear Romero because I've been looking for the ideal partner for a long time. Romero has been sharing my life for 3 months but actually longer since I have been following their Facebook page since a visit to the Haras de Niaster where I encountered an environment favorable to horses and passionate people. That's how I saw a photo of a little black foal and I said to myself "Oh he's beautiful, you'd like to have one like that too". I couldn't have known that 3 years later I would be able to call him mine when I finally gathered up the courage and asked to meet him. I have not regretted choosing this breeding which is much more than just breeding! It's a close-knit family who love animals and are incredibly passionate about them! An extraordinary know-how, the aim of which is to rediscover a symbiosis between rider and horse. A big thank you to the Eloy Family and the Niaster stud team for raising Romero as you did. He is endearing, intelligent, with good manners, innocent, well in his head, magnificent in my eyes, a real little prince, I couldn't dream of anything better. I can only recommend the breeding of Haras de Niaster for its love for animals and professionalism and I am delighted that your breeding will make many riders happy, not only professional riders but also leisure riders. You have beautiful, happy horses and you can be proud of it all!

Thank you for this wonderful meeting.”

Matador HN

"The Quest for a Horse has been a journey for me with mostly many downs. Never did I feel it was a match or did the horses not run correctly. When I had almost given up the search I came to Jacqueline and Pierre through Nathalie Nathalie has sent me to Jacqueline to contact you without information about Matador's phone number. From now on, you will be able to take care of yourself and take care of yourself in the Haras de Niaster waanden. We're on our way. We're here and we're waiting for you. I was immediately blessed! When I started riding I really had a feeling of peace and relaxation. What a pleasure said horse was! My self-confidence took a big dent but with this gentleman I felt completely at ease, even a gallop in the woods felt good. But this time I don't see any slaps in the air and I don't have to worry about the Matador. Jacqueline and Pierre gave me the chance to get to know Matador at ease, this was important to me because I really wanted to be sure. Matador is naked weeks with us but we could not miss him already. He is so happy to work and also est very interested and new things. Here I am and I am still in the same position. Matador is a beautiful horse and we still have a lot to discover together."

"A few months after the premature departure of my beautiful PRE Sombrero to horse paradise and having discussed a lot with my mother and my sister, that's it, I had made my decision to acquire a new companion for life. I followed the Haras de Niaster for several months, I have always been in admiration of their way of breeding their horses, the passion and the professionalism that reigns there. It was truly a dream to one day be able to acquire a filly from them. December 27, 2021, my dream came true, that's it, SOLERA HN, you are home, I don't believe it From the first moment our eyes met, I knew it was you. just fabulous! I wanted to thank Jacqueline and Pierre for their kindness, the time they took, their advice, their kindness and their trust!

Igazu des Gachots 

"When I was looking for a young horse for competition, I discovered the Haras de Niaster stud. I was offered the young IGAZU and his video caught my attention. When I arrived at the stud for a trial, I was able to discover Jacqueline and Pierre's superb facilities. These two enthusiasts have created a real cocoon of well-being for their breeding operation, surrounded by a team of professionals. They produce quality horses that feel good in body and mind. At just 3 years old, IGAZU has benefited from an excellent education, and the test ride was conclusive! I would like to thank the whole team for their warm welcome and availability throughout the purchase process, from the night vet visit :-) to the administrative formalities and transport! Zùzu joined France since the beginning of the year, he is a little the darling of the stable and for good reason! A little stallion with a dream physique, impeccable behaviour, adorable on a daily basis and promising for dressage! Are you looking for a horse? You know where to go!

We met a wonderful horse both as a companion and as an athlete who gives us a lot of happiness and satisfaction. A big thank you to Jacqueline and Pierre who took care of Lanzado's education perfectly. Thanks also to Vanou. Very professionalism for his delivery to Reunion Island."

Quimera HN

For 30 years, I dreamed of having an Iberian horse. I wanted to meet Ms. Eloy for her knowledge (and as I admire Hernesto and his work).

When I met Quimera’s gaze in her herd, my heart melted. From the first contacts, she was gentle, curious, ready to follow me and trust me. The start of a great adventure.

Every day I admire his liveliness, his need to learn and above all his management of his environment and his relationship with his peers. In addition to a beautiful and good physique, she has an excellent mind.

She quickly found her place in the family, in our herd and offers us our moment of oxygen and serenity every day.

A big thank you to Jacqueline, Pierre and Vanou for their philosophy, their relationship with each horse, their work and their trust.

"It was at the Haras de Niaster in Aywaille that we found a rare gem.

On our first visit to the stud in June we were immediately seduced by the magnificent location and the kindness and professionalism of the owners. 

What happiness for the horses to be able to grow and develop surrounded by so much love and expertise. Thank you for entrusting us with Perla, an adorable and sensitive little mare that we will tame with respect and love to continue in the same spirit. 

Best regards "

Nacar HN
(par Hidalgo HN)

"The perfect horse does not exist, and yet... Nacar

A first meeting in 2017, rather by chance because the test was not planned with him. Big baby who wasn't looking his best, too young for what I was looking for at that moment but still something happening...

A year later, during the first try, happiness. Well beyond my expectations, this little horse just broken in fills me.

Nacar has done flawlessly since his arrival with us, the start of an adventure."

Pimiento HN
(by Hidalgo HN)

“I’m one of those people who has dreams, some bigger than others. One of those was, for a long time, having my horse. I had half-boards for a long time which went very well, but recently I said to myself that it was the right time to have another relationship. So I looked for what qualities I expected from this horse, and the obvious thing was that he was good in his head (in addition to my attraction to the Iberians that I have been riding for years). I discovered the Haras de Niaster through an acquaintance who took part in an internship and through the MICI competitions. So one day I asked if there was a horse for sale. There was none available but Jacqueline suggested that I come and see. I went with the idea of buying a mare. She showed me the broodmares, the fillies and then a little 2-year-old gray horse, very small next to the other two. And then I fell in love at first sight, Pimiento had come into my life just by coming towards me with his slightly scoundrel but so confident look. I returned regularly to see him, always very well received, I had the opportunity to see Vanou patiently working with the young horses, until the breaking in which took place during confinement.

Since the beginning of June Pimiento has been with me at Takirou and this little horse is a real joy. He is friendly, confident in people, sociable and always happy to be taken care of. After a summer of "rest" following the castration (he was really very hot with the others and that became problematic), we gradually resumed mounted work, in addition to work on foot and socialization with many " friends ".

The luck I had in having bought Pimiento in Niaster is to have a horse, certainly with his character and personality, but who, at 3 years old, is already well educated, respectful of people, easy to handle . It got into the van without any problems for transport. When we put him in the meadow he waits politely for us to remove the rope, when I let him go in the lunging ring, he follows me (so I don't always know how to let him let off steam!).

I thank the entire Niaster team who breed high quality horses, well educated from a very young age. Pimiento is happy here, I am well surrounded to support him in all his learning. We have many years to evolve but we already have a great relationship, my little magical unicorn and I. »

"In Nispero HN,

It all started on July 1, 2018 during an MCI round where I saw Hernesto HN.

The next day, I discovered the Haras de Niaster via its website.

On July 7, we're heading to the stud farm to come see you.

As we entered the stable our eyes met and I immediately knew that it was you NISPERO HN that I was waiting for.

Son of Hidalgo HN, also seen at MCI, and Que Pasa RMC, what a sublime result!

I participated with Vanou in your breaking in and you joined me on September 6.

Since then, it’s been pure happiness to be with you every day, my darling Loulou”

This wonderful story would not have been possible without the passion and philosophy of Jacqueline, Pierre and Vanou. A big thank you to them for their trust."

“if we can paint the ideal horse, I would paint GalànHN;

He is tall, he is handsome, a gentle character, his movements are excellent and a pleasant massage for the back.

He is well educated and Vanou worked with him tenderly. We can only benefit.

A big thank you to the entire Haras de Niaster team.

Together with our PRE NR-Goyeso, Galàn HN seems to feel good and satisfied"

Maçana HN
(by Hernesto HN)

"A few long months after the untimely and unjust departure of my Zalamero to horse heaven, my husband organised a surprise visit to the Haras de Niaster. 

Jacqueline & Pierre were waiting to introduce us to the beautiful Maçana! And from the very first moment, it was obvious that she was made for me. Gently bred by true enthusiasts, the horses at the Haras de Niaster develop their own personalities in addition to their natural beauty. The team complements each other perfectly with the indispensable work of Vanou, who looks after all these young horses admirably, giving them confidence and kindness. 

The Haras de Niaster is undoubtedly a noble stud, like the horse of Kings!

Thank you for my beautiful Maçana.

Maestria HN

"Maestria, a few words would not be enough to describe the mare
extraordinary that she is.
But one word represents her, it's my little dragon. Full of enthusiasm,
of character, filled with kindness and overflowing with vitality. A little
also a hothead.
Maestria gives 100% for the people she loves, she is
attentive and devoted to her rider.
But this extraordinary mare could not have seen the light of day without her
breeding, the HARAS de Niaster. This little corner of paradise where horses
can flourish in respect and trust, close to man.
Because the road is far from over, we are progressing,
let's learn, stumble and recover together.
New adventures to come, challenges to take on, madness to
sharing will be the next chapters of our story.
I thank Vanou, Jacqueline and Pierre for their presence, their
experiences and their advice, without which this meeting would not have
could come true."

Imperia HN

" Dear Mrs Eloy.

I bought Imperia from you 6 weeks ago.

I am very enthusiastic about the mare and she is exactly the horse I wanted.

She has a great character, is very intelligent and people orientated.

I am also very impressed with the good training Imperia has received from them. This makes dealing with her much easier, especially when she gets excited, you can always stop her and she always calms down.

Apart from that, I have nothing but praise for her.

Your facility is impressively managed and the purchase process was very correct and I would buy a horse from you again at any time.

Thank you very much "  


"Chère Madame Eloy,

Maintenant 6 semaines que j'ai acheté Imperia chez vous et je peux vous dire que je suis très enchantée de cette jument, c'est le cheval que j'ai toujours voulu avoir.

She has a very good character, is very intelligent and very friendly to the man.

I am also very happy for the good education Imperia has received from you. This makes working with her much easier; if she is nervous or if she is upset, you can tell her to calm down.

I would also like to say that your breeding is very impressive and that the sale was done very correctly.

I would like to breed a cheval chez vous.

Thank you very much."

Nobleza HN

"Nobleza, my PRE dream,

My PRE mare is slowly getting older, so I'm thinking of taking over from her, without really looking because it's difficult to find a replacement worthy of her!

I came across the Haras de Niaster by chance, an email, a visit was organized mainly for his sister. But in the middle of the herd, a little head observes us and then walks forward, frankly drunk with curiosity.

Nobleza already shows up, we look at each other, we observe each other. I leave in the middle of a dilemma but my heart goes to her, I am won over.

She's only been home for a few months and she's already taking up so much space. She has made her way through the herd, already knows the place by heart, her box, her meadows, discovers day by day, briefly observes each new thing so as to no longer ask questions. We get to know each other, we learn to know each other, to work together.

At just 1 and a half years old, she already has all the makings of a grown-up. Imperturbable, kind, not fierce, gentle, respectful.

I thank Jacqueline and Pierre for trusting me with Nobleza, thank you to them and Vanou for making her such an exceptional filly.

Nobleza, my "future" dressage and touring horse but above all OUR family mare."

Latina HN

Latina HN

" Quand une famille de 5 cavaliers (dont 3 petites cavalières “en herbe”) cherche un cheval, les critères sont nombreux. Nous recherchions donc un cheval PRE “passe-partout”, qui soit bien dans sa tête.

Sur le site du Haras de Niaster, nous sommes tombés sous le charme de Latina.

Il ne nous a fallu qu’une seule visite pour nous rendre compte de l’énergie, le temps et la patience que Jacqueline, Pierre et Vanou consacrent aux poulains, faisant d’eux de vrais bons chevaux.

Sans hésiter, nous avons décidé de nous lancer dans l’aventure et d’acquérir cette jeune jument.

Après un débourrage poursuivi au Haras, par les mains douces de Vanou, avec l’accent sur les promenades en extérieur, elle est enfin arrivée.

Il ne lui a fallu que quelques jours pour s’habituer à son nouvel environnement et à sa nouvelle meilleure amie, notre poney Connemara.

Latina nous a vite dévoilée son caractère gentil, doux et affectif. En quelques semaines elle est devenue un membre à part entière de notre famille.


Merci Jacqueline et Pierre de nous avoir confié Latina. Merci Vanou de nous l’avoir aussi bien préparée.Nous continuerons de vous donner de ses nouvelles!"

Kerrio HN

Kerrio HN

"The meeting with Kerrio is one of those encounters that we can call magical. From the first contact the flow flowed and since then the bond has only grown and strengthened! Kerrio is a magnificent horse both physically and mentally. Wonderfully pampered and raised during his first 3 years, he benefited from a human and equine environment which could only allow him to develop his many qualities.

A lot of words to say that he simply became my best friend and a second me!

I can never thank Jacqueline and Pierre enough for the love they put into raising their horses, and without forgetting Vanou who with patience and gentleness taught Kerrio to live without stress the constraint of a biped on his back! everyone is a winner, both horse and human.”

Bailarina HN

"My happiness can be summed up in just one word: "Baïlarina". It all started at the Haras de Niaster... A top PRE stud, if you dream of the perfect horse. A good piece of advice: visit the Haras de Niaster. I've been riding since I was a little girl, I've always been into horses but there's only one horse that manages to make me happy and thrill me. It's my mare, a mare like no other, she's unique. A mare who completes me, who is like me, who makes me stronger, who makes me smile, who loves me and who understands me. A lot of things that humans don't always manage to achieve. When I'm not feeling well, I go to see Baila and everything gets better. She's my precious one, my friend, my baby, my rare pearl, my other self, my lucky star, my greatest gift, the one I never want to lose, my mare. Thank you for everything my horse, I love you and it will be like this for life.... Laura 💕."

(par Hernesto HN)

"De Zoektocht naar een paard est voor mij een tocht geweest met vooral veel downs. Nooit had ik het gevoel dat het een match was of liepen de paarden niet correct. Toen ik de zoektocht bijna had opgegeven kwam ik via Nathalie bij Jacqueline en Pierre terecht Nathalie has sent me to Jacqueline to contact you without information about Matador's phone number. From now on, you will be able to take care of yourself and take care of yourself in the Haras de Niaster waanden. We are ready to go. We are very rusty and we are waiting for you. Ik was meteen blessed! Toen ik begon te rijden had ik echt een gevoel van rust en ontspanning. Wat een plezier was said paard! Mijn zelfvertrouwen heeft een flinke deuk gekregen maar met deze gentleman voelde ik mij helemaal op mijn gemak, zelf een galpopje in het bos voelde goed aan. But this time I don't see any slaps in the air and I don't have to worry about the Matador. Jacqueline en Pierre hebben mij de kans gegeven om Matador op het gemak te ren kennen, dit was voor mij belangrijk omdat ik echt zeker wou zijn. Matador is naked weken weken bij ons maar we zouden hem al niet meer kunnen missen. Hij werkt zo graag en est ook heel geïnteresseerd en nieuwe dingen. Here I am and I am still in the same position. Matador is a prachtig paard en we hebben samen nog heel veel te ontdekken."

"At the dawn of my 50th birthday, I was chosen by a touchy little princess. Curious about everything, loving contact with animals, confident in people thanks to Jacqueline and Pierre, she often wants to decide for herself .Correcting my mistakes, she pushes me with a lot of energy and determination towards a riding style marked by lightness, sometimes sulky but knowing how to be forgiven when she has made a mistake or after an "argument". She occupies an important place in our stable and. our family. I thank Jacqueline and Pierre again for the attention and love they gave to Islera during her young years."

Imperiosa HN

“By reading the guest book and the texts written by the other owners, I noted that a bond united us: love and respect for the horse.


For my part, after consulting the Haras de Niaster website, it was the Imperia mare that caught my attention. Arriving there, however, it was another PRE mare to which I was irresistibly attracted. After a walk and a test run, his vitality, his natural energy and his kindness completely seduced me. This is how I acquired the beautiful Imperiosa.

In an environment often corrupt, devoid of ethics where the well-being of the horse is often neglected in favor of unscrupulous commercial profitability, I would especially like to salute the seriousness, professionalism and honesty of Mr. and Mrs. ELOY and thanks them and Vanou for the quality of their welcome and the special care they take in the breeding and education of their horses.

Long live Haras de Niaster!”

It was truly a dream to be able to acquire a filly from them one day. On 27 December 2021, my dream came true, that's it, SOLERA HN, you're home, I can't believe it.

Helena HN

"I always wanted to buy a Spanish, before I had a Friesian for 15 years. After his death, I was looking for a purebred Spanish breeder and by chance I came across Mrs. and Mr. Eloy.

I saw Helena, aged 3, and I immediately fell in love with this mare. I broke her myself and now 4 years later I can say I bought the perfect horse.

Helena has her own character, she knows what she wants and what she doesn't, she's a little dominant too but she has a heart of GOLD, and if you treat her with respect she does everything to please.

In terms of dressage Helena is perfect, she loves pawing and starts the passage and pirouettes at a gallop. In Walking, Helena is not afraid of anything, she is always forward, I can even walk with just the halter, she always stays close to me.

I am so happy to have met Jacqueline and Pierre Eloy and especially to have found my little princess Helena. For me she is the perfect horse, either for dressage or for walks.

Thank you Jacqueline and Pierre for allowing me to have this adorable and kind mare, thank you for your trust.

Big Kisses from me and Helena"
