Our family owns a farm where we breed, raise and train Connemara Ponies. The farm is outside a small village of ~ 200 citicens, on a balkony in the scenic Middle Rhine Vally. The farmhouse is now mainly let to a baroque horse trainer. Most of the farm facilities are from the 1960th and are objects to refurbish.
