The Hippolia Foundation, the leading French scientific research organization dedicated to Horse’s health, welfare and performance, presents its digital exhibition "Sciences en Selle", that helps to better understand research related to equine.

The Hippolia Foundation felt that the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy were the perfect event to increase public awareness of its cause, to present its objectives and the services it provides every day. 

The Hippolia Foundation was created in 2011 to promote equine health, performance and welfare, by strengthening and supporting education and research in these fields.


The exhibition presents diverse aspects of its work through a series of 3 interactive activities that are both educational and entertaining:

The exhibition explains the issues and challenges of equine research, its hopes and expectations but also the crucial role played by the Hippolia Foundation in all this. Sciences en Selle shows real-life situations, the progress of research, the needs of the whole Equine Industry and of the Horse itself.

Because horses are truly exceptional animals, and have a unique place in our lives, we owe it to them and to ourselves to be always by their side.

This exhibition is presented thanks to the generous support of :
