Je me nomme Didier DARIO et à ce jour je suis installé sur l’hippodrome de La Teste de Buch, situé dans la paradisiaque région du bassin d’Arcachon. Toujours très impliqué au cœur de l’entrainement des chevaux, je propose également expertises et conseils à toutes personnes ayant pour projet de devenir propriétaire de chevaux de courses de galop.

 

Eternel amoureux du cheval, mes premiers réels contacts avec l’animal se font, très jeune, dans un joli club hippique situé dans la forêt Landaise. Véritable école primaire du cheval, il m’est enseigné les bases solides d’un cavalier attentionné et respectueux vis-à-vis de son partenaire équin.

Une morphologie adaptée et un esprit de compétition bien développé m’amène à intégrer dès l’âge de 14 ans l’école de jockey de Mont de Marsan. J’y resterai pour une période 4 ans ou il me sera dispensé un cursus bien spécifique lié à la monte et à l’entretien du cheval de course. Dès l’âge requit de 16 ans je participerai également à de multiples courses dans la région.

Suite à un échange d’apprenti avec une écurie Anglaise durant mon apprentissage, je décide, dès mon cursus scolaire terminé, de repartir en Angleterre afin d’enrichir mes connaissances et mon expérience.

Durant 4 années passionnantes je vais successivement travailler au cœur de 2 écuries très compétitives qui évoluent au plus haut niveau de compétition avec des chevaux de qualité internationale.

Je retourne ensuite en France afin de préparer et valider un diplôme de gestion d’entreprise mais également un diplôme d’état en anglais professionnel.

Une fois diplômé, je me mets, pour de nombreuses années, au service d’un professionnel du Sud-Ouest ou je vais exercer toutes les facettes et responsabilités inerrantes au milieu des chevaux de courses.

My name is Didier DARIO and to i am currently based at the hippodrome of La Teste de Buch (France), situated in the heavenly region of the Arcachon bay. Still very much involved in the training of racehorses, I am equally proposing my expertise and my advice to anyone having the exciting project of becoming a racehorse owner.

 

Eternal horse lover, my first real contact with the animal happened when I was very young, in a lovely horse club situated in the Landes forest. True school for the beginner, I was taught the solid foundations of an attentive and respectful rider towards his equine partner.

An adapted morphology and a well developed competitive spirit led me to join the Mont de Marsan jockey’s school at the age of 14. I stayed there for a period of 4 years where I was given a very specific education related to riding and racehorse care. From the age of 16 I also participated in multiple races in the region.

Following an apprenticeship exchange with an English stable during my studies, I decided, as soon as I finished my schooling, to return to England in order to enrich my knowledge and my experience.

During 4 exciting years I have worked successively for 2 highly competitive stables that evolved at the highest level of competition with horses of international quality.

I then returned to France to prepare and validate a diploma in business management and also a state diploma in professional English.

Once I graduated, I put myself, for many years, at the service of a horse trainer located in southwest of France. There I was involved in all the facets and responsibilities inherent to the world of horse racing.

 

France has superb racecourses, a formidable racing program of international renown and attractive premiums. Numerous training facilities and excellent professionals allow the development of a racehorse in the best conditions.

The horse racing environment is fascinating, hectic and provider of ultra-strong emotions. Through your team of champions, you will be able to confront the most prestigious racing colors on tracks among the most beautiful in the world.

 

However, for the potential investor, the world of horse racing may appear opaque, complex and intimidating. The project of becoming a fulfilled racehorse owner remains an achievable adventure, but strewn with many real and unexpected difficulties.

The investments made are substantial, a fair number of actors are involved, the options are multiple, the strategies varied and the environment has its own linguistic code.

There are so many parameters to know, understand and master. Solid experience, a good analytical mind and trusted collaborators are essential for lasting and evolving serenely.

The decades that I have spent in the world of horse racing have given me skills and knowledge that I wishes to share with you.

Do you have the great project of becoming a racehorse owner? Let’s talk about it.
