    Description

    Hello everybody,
    We are a non-Profit organization!

    We are a German family and live with our four-legged work colleagues (14 of them) in Umbria, the green heart of Italy.
    We are based in the countryside, surrounded by 500 olive trees and about 20 hectares of land for our horses.

    We are a kind of Well-being Centre for horses and for people, children and handicapped people who come to us.
    We teach respect and love for all beings, without competition and stress for anybody, two-legged or four-legged.

    My name is Ina Mainusch and I teach classic riding style, influenced by Philipp Karl, Cavaliere of the Cadre Noir (France).

    We would love you to get in touch if you love horses,nature,dogs, cats,and a peaceful state of mind.
