  • Description


    We are a German family and live with our four-legged work colleagues (13 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).

  • Accommodation


    Every volunteer has their own room and every day we share good organic vegetarian food prepared by my husband who takes care of our physical wellbeing.
    We like our volunteers to stay for a period of at least 3 - 4 months. But this can be discussed if you are not able to stay for such a long period.
