Our team is made out of veterinarians, researchers and technicians - all specialised in the equestrian sector. Several companies or actors of the sector rely on their skills to develop their products and have them approved, but also to carry out studies or expert missions.
EUNetHorse is a European thematic network funded by the European Commission, which aim to enhance the exchange of knowledge and best practice between 9 European countries (France, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Romania, Poland, Finland and Switzerland)
The global aim of EUNetHorse is to increase the resilience and performance of the equine farms to face environmental, social, health, economic or political crises by widely disseminating practices, tools and solutions that improve (1) their resilience and socio-economic performance, (2) animal welfare and health on farms, and (3) the environmental sustainability of the sector.
Mont-le-Soie is the coordinator of this project in Belgium and responsible for several tasks throughout its implementation. The project started in the spring of 2023 and is spread over 4 years.
Mont-le-Soie partners are many and varied: studs, companies, stud books, sports federations... Mont-le-Soie meets all applicable standards to carry out studies in horses and collaborate with companies willing to see their products approved.
Our team's areas of expertise mainly revolve around the equine locomotor system on the one hand and on equine reproduction on the other hand.
Some examples of partnerships : horse feed and feed complements (Hippoforme/ Kara-Suppléments), horse boots (Compositi), orthopedic horseshoes, studies in equine regenerative medicine (Revatis), qualitative analysis products for equine semen (4BioDx - SPQI Breeding) ...
The Centre welcomes companies of the sector in an open office space. Many companies are already on site : BiopTis, EqStuds and the Equestrian Cluster of companies EquisFair.
Companies based on our site benefit from an access to offices, an internet connection, telecoms, a multi-function printer...
They can also welcome visitors or host bigger events in the meeting room.
Working in a shared spaced in Mont-le-Soie also means joining an ecosystem revolving around the equestrian sector.
