  • Description

    Description

    We have a farm with horses on the countryside one hour from Gothenburg i Sweden. We, Marie and Niclas live here with our horse family and of course – our cats. Maries parents also live here in a separate house, so we are two generations on the farm. Still there is always need for an extra pair of hands to help with the daily work, and so much more fun if we do it together.

    The farm is a hobby farm, we both work full time at regular jobs.

    We have a small scale breeding of Swedish ridingponys and expect a foal next summer. Our philosophy is to try to keep our horses in a horse-friendly and respectful way. We are in to French classical riding and natural horsemanship. If you are an animal lover a stay here is an great opportunity for you to be around horses.


    The farm is located one hour’s drive from Gothenburg in Sweden. It is easy to catch a bus or train from here. The closest town is Borås, half an hour by bus. We have the best place here living in the countryside and still at the same time close to the city.

    In the area there are a variety of beautiful nature with lakes and forests to explore. There are also a lot of culture to take part of.
    We speak English, German and of course Swedish.
