Most of our horses are born in the farm or are ex race horses. To train them to become pleasant and trustful, we are training them with natural horsemanship technics. All our horses can lead, all can be ridden alone. In the future, we will continue to select forward going, responsive, sure footed horses which are fun to ride ...
Every day, leaving with our horses is best school for us to learn the spirit of our horses. So we try to share this knowlegde to our guest, for everybody to enjoy a ride with us!
