Located in Sable, in the heart of the Sarthe region, the SCEA de la Barbottiere is a breaking in and re training center as well as a growing stud farm.

In 1993, Sophie Rousselle, a vet products sales person, and Jean-Claude Werle, both from Paris area, decide to invest and buy 123 acres in Sable Sur Sarthe: 7 boxes, sheds, large paddocks. The investment also involves the purchase of a broodmare: Prima Dei Fiori. Her first foal is a Gairloch filly, named Prima Girl.

Sophie Rousselle enjoys more and more the game and gets into the adventurous racing world: she applies for her amateur rider and trainer licence. Sophie will win her first race as a jockey with Prima Girl at Plouescat, a racetrack on the beach. Huge works are undertaken in a clayish land, which does not make things easier. They build a lunging ring, a walker, a 6f gallops and an arena.

In the meantime, Prima Dei Fiori produces 5 winners including 4 fillies who will stay at stud at la Barbottiere !... They also buy Fabuleuse Histoire (Fabulous Dancer).

In 2000, Sophie Rousselle and Jean-Claude Werle decide to move permanently to Barbottière to develop a breaking and pre training center and also keep some land for breeding. They will use the suffix "Prima" (in reference to their 1st mare) and "de Vaige" (in reference to the river across the property) for the foals. Stephane, son of Jean-Claude, who took his NH jockey's licence again and won with Prima Boy (by Turgeon ex Prima Dei Fiori) at Nantes, is a major support in organising the yard and the stud.

Then, they buy an extra 185 acres and keep improving the yard to board horses. The Barbottière becomes a registered company where Stephane is the director, Sophie, the manager. Jean-Claude and Sophie's son, Antoine Werle, is an apprentice jockey at Henri-Alex Pantall's stables.

The Barbottiere produces its barley, oats and hay, also available for sale.

At the end of 2012, Pascal Noue (Haras de la Hetraie) offers Sophie Rousselle, Jean-Claude and Stephane Werle, to stand three stallions at the Barbottiere. They accept the challenge to welcome Apsis, Satri and Monitor Closely. Everything is organised to suit the breeders and facilitate access.

Two full time employees are also part of the team: Caroline and Marie-Elisabeth. La Barbottiere allow students to come for work experience all year long.
