It's small - but it's ours!
Established in the year 1920 by our great-grandfather, the ranch is located in the foothills west of the Ammergauer Alps, directly on the German-Austrian border. From the pastures you can see the Ammergauer Alps, Neuschwanstein Castle and the Hopfensee. With an elevation of 2936 ft above sea level many healthy and tasty herbs grow on these meadows. In the year 1987 the cattle keeping was terminated and five years later - 1992 - we started our little horse business. Twelve years later, in 2004, we changed from Haflinger to American Paint Horses.
Our barn - wich was constructed in the year 2016 by our very own hands and labor - offers comfortable, with light flooded boxes to the horses. Heated watering places are mandatory. The large windows to look around provide some entertainment, so long, snowy winter days are not so boring anymore. The new spacious paddocks offer sufficient movement for the animals in the summer as well as in the cold season. A hot water horse shower and a farriers place are also included.
Our outdoor arena
Our outdoor area (about 50ft x 100ft) - constructed in the year 2007 - has an all-weather covering, but unfortunately no roof. In addition to the classic dressage, you can jump (great range of obstacles) and, of course, Western riding. In addition to bars, there are also a bridge and gate available for trail tasks. Poles for Pole Bending and Barrels for the Barrel Race are also available. For some fun in the arena a mechanical cow with remote control is available. And for the roping practise there are different dummies. In 2019 we did a complete renovation of the outdoor arena including a new fence and a new ground.
All our stalls, as well as the large paddock and the perimeter of the ranch are video monitored around the clock!
