The stud at Gelos is concerned not just with conserving the blood lines of race horses, but also of local ponies - the Pottok, the Mirens from the central Pyrénées and the Landes pony.

Horse shows are held there at the beginning of July (Anglo-Arab), end August (Arab) and beginning of November (French cart horses.)
