Das Schweizer Nationalgestüt SNG


The Swiss National Stud Farm (SNSF) is located on the edge of the picturesque town of Avenches, which was once founded by the Romans. It is not far from the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bern and Lake Geneva.

The stud farm is a pillar of the Swiss horse industry.Founded in 1898, it is now an internationally recognized center of excellence for horses.
The National Stud pays particular attention to the Freiberger horse, the only Swiss horse breed still in existence today. A great deal is invested in applied research, mainly in the areas of horse husbandry, behavior, animal breeding and genetics, socio-economics, reproduction and health.

The stud farm offers horse breeders and owners a wealth of knowledge and expertise. A wealth of information is made available to professionals, students and other interested parties via courses, the horse advice center and the documentation center.
