Matt Rothman & Heather Killen
Owners of the Haras d'Austral

Heather Killen and Matt Rothman met in San Francisco and moved to the UK in 2003. They bring extensive experience in the development of international businesses to their passion for sport horse breeding.

Pierre and Sophie Couilloud met while working at the Haras de Vulsain in Burgundy, and spent several years with the Haras des Rouges in Normandy before striking out on their own, only to meet the owners of the Haras d'Austral at the end of 2007. Both are deeply committed to the equestrian sector, with a wide range of skills and gifted touch with young horses.
