    We are a family whose goal is to preserve the original horses that came to North America. The Spanish Mustang. We used to be based in the Swiss Alps but have now moved to be near the sea in County Wexford, Ireland. We also are involved with research into the skills at mounted swords and other weapons. At the moment we need help setting up the house and making the 10 acres we now have fit for horses instead of dairy cattle. Wexford is known as the strawberry capital of Ireland and there are many Summer concerts and other events in the area as this is a tourist destination. We are training the horses to do Rossfechten , fighting with sword using vaquero or californeos training-what Buck Brananman. It's a classical kind of riding and training that goes back to ancient times. After all if you can ride one handed you can throw a spear or a javelin as easily as a lasso. We are involved in a local club, sword training. We are constantly researching the history of war horses and weapons back to prehistory and plan to publish books on the subject in future.

    Our workaways are usually interested in history, literature, and lifelong learning. They can learn basic natural horsemanship and ways of keeping horses that are good for barefoot horses. Some barefoot trimming. Basic ground work in a round pen and maybe circle exercises and more advanced Buck Brannaman training. We are trying to learn vaquero riding and are transitioning or horses from halter to snaffle to Bosal. We love to visit local sites and explore storytelling and crafts in time off. And look forward to just being able to go to the beach and enjoy the white Irish sand.

    There are buses to and from Dublin many times a day. The trip is now about 2.5 hours to Dublin since the buses make about 4 stops along the way. You can also catch buses all the way to London. And we are near to Rosslare. The ferry is about 4 hours crossing.

    Buses go into Wexford town which has excellent Opera, theatre and music. And of course everywhere else in Ireland.
    Trains are more expensive but faster into Dublin.
