Questions and answers

Here we have collected a few questions and their answers on the topics of boarding stable, horse training, horse riding courses, horse driving courses and horse / Haflinger breeding, which we often get. Is your question (or answer) not included? Write to us!

Questions about the boarding stable:

We only offer full board, so self-sufficiency is not possible with us. There are also practical reasons for this, because in order to optimally look after and care for your horse, we always want to be able to control what and how much it eats.

No, this is part of the pasture service and we will do it for you. We bring your horse to the pasture and bring it back to the stable. Of course you can always bring your horse from the pasture yourself when you come to visit it.

It’s the same with the horse walker and free jumping: you don’t have to worry about anything. This is especially ideal if you can’t get to your horse to move it.

Ebenso ist es mit der Führanlage und dem Freispringen:  Du musst Dich da um nichts kümmern. Das ist vor allem ideal, wenn Du mal nicht zu Deinem Pferd kommen kannst um es zu bewegen.


Questions about horse training:

Basically, the pace of training is determined by the respective horse. As a guideline, however, you can count on 6-8 weeks until the horse has internalized the necessary basic knowledge for a life as a future riding horse.

As with riding, the training period depends on the horse. However, a thorough and horse-friendly training requires enough time. At least 8 weeks should therefore be planned for a sensible and safe entry.

No, your horse does not require any special previous knowledge. We like to work with still “raw” horses. However, it is helpful if your horse is already used to halters.
