We are running a farm in the mountains (873 meters, Plateau de Sault ) and breed "Castillonnais" horses respectfully towards all living beings. We apply subtle communication and equipedagogie, where we invite the horses to work - riding, ploughing, pulling wood and a horse carriage, and in winter sled driving.
The Castillonnais horses are an endangered with only 550 individuals left on earth. We have around 15.
Our project is done out of passion and love.
Freďa and Charles - friends and neighbours - working together for 7 years. We are passionate about horses, smiling and laughing a lot. We are looking for self-motivated people with an eye for things that need doing, and we need help in participating in the daily work.
