In our pony farm, five great ponies are waiting for good-humoured children.

That's how our ponies live

So that the horses share the joy of riding with us, we attach great importance to adequate rest, species-appropriate husbandry, needs-based feeding and loving treatment of the animals. The animals live in the modern open stable and enjoy daily grazing. To protect the ponies, we have a weight limit of 60 kg.
In the winter months from about November to mid-April, our ponies are due to the snow on a farm in the valley.
