Univers et pratiques de la filière hippique en Basse-Normandie : une approche géographique

Abstract : Basse Normandie has been for long a renowned land for horses, in particular those bred for racing. The region is a centre of horse activity, from breeding in stud farms to races that take place in the whole country or on numerous racecourses situated in the three departments, some of them are particularly famous, like those of Deauville. This thesis aims at understanding the organization of a sector with strong socioeconomic stakes because much money is invested in the horse industry, which offers numerous jobs in varied fields, whether it be in contact with the animal or not. Our angle of approach breaks down the industry in different stages, from the field to the race track. It is then proper to study the breeding in itself, through big stud farms, particularly dynamic horse sales in Deauville, the training of future champions and obviously, events with betting backgrounds. Our thesis seeks then to understand this world and the practices specific to the horse world. It is quite a closed world but a better knowledge allows us to understand the organization and the structure of an industry particularly well rooted in Basse-Normandie. This can be perceived in the regional identity, in landscapes made by vast meadows, some of them belonging to age-old horse studs, sometimes secular, and that are world famous.
