Where we work
The training centre is situated 20 km in the North of Angers at Morannes sur Sarthe. It is part of the family owned estate, which is spread over approximately 40 hectares of wood and grassland.
It is easily reached by the A 11 (Paris-Nantes), which is only a ten-minute drive from the estate. It is also close to the main railway stations in Angers and Le Mans, as well as the Nantes and Angers airports.
In fact, by car, the yard is only a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Paris and only a four-hour drive from Bordeaux.
Always eager to explore new avenues, Jean trains his horses on a wood chip track. The track includes a 1m 2 ½ f straight, with a 2 – 4% incline.
It also features a 5-furlong round track.
The wood chip surface has proven its ability to reduce physical stress from daily training, whilst the climb ensures that the horses maintain their fitness level.
Also, horses can work on the wood chip track all year round, no matter what the weather throws at it.
The brand-new installations include 35 boxes. However, Jean de Mieulle Racing is not limited to 35 horses, as new barns can be added.
The training centre also sports different paddocks, a horsewalker with 8 stalls, starting gates and many other features that are essential for succeeding in this business (lounging pen, scales, etc…)
