The National Stud Farm of Uzès is one of the sites operated by the IFCE (French Institute of the Horse and Riding). It's construction started in 1972. In the past, three stallion depots operated in the region: ARLES (closed in 1859), PERPIGNAN (closed in 1927) and AJACCIO (Corsica). After the closing of the two depots, the management of Midi - Mediterranean horse breeding was divided among the stud farms of ANNECY, RODEZ and TARBES, until the implementation of regionalisation justified the creation of the Uzès stud farm.
Covering a surface area of 16 hectares, the National Stud Farm of Uzès has 65 stalls, 8,500m2 of sandpits, a big riding arena with grandstand seating for 550 spectators, an old stone house of great historical interest, and a garage for horse-drawn vehicles. The Stud Farm of Uzès possesses 18 vintage horse-drawn vehicles, which are used during events and demonstrations, and 11 other modern horse-drawn vehicles.
The National Stud Farm of Uzès also provides the public with instruction by offering different courses (harnessing, horse handling practices and even saddlery)
