In the middle of the “heart of the island of happiness”, as Ellerbek is popularly called, my Icelandic horse farm Kári is located in a quiet side street.
The paddocks and pastures border directly on the garden of the residential house, so that the horses are always in sight and hearing.
From the origin of a small open stable built with a lot of craftsmanship, a lovingly designed riding facility embedded in the landscape with a high feel-good factor for humans and animals has now been created.
A roundpen, dressage arena (20 x 40m) and an oval track (200 & 250m) are available. The entire facility is illuminated.
The proximity to Hamburg ensures easy accessibility by car or also by HVV.
Our riding area borders directly on the farm and allows for a short “after work round”, as well as enduring riding opportunities. Despite the proximity to the city, there are many good opportunities for relaxed riding out or also to build up his horse to the top sport horse condition.
The welfare of the horses is our top priority. Therefore they are housed in small, sex-separated herds on dry open stable paddocks and are provided with high-quality feed in large quantities. Since I was 13 years old, I have been caring for my horses myself and since my training as a Pferdewirtschaftsmeisterin, I not only have practical knowledge on this subject, but also know the theoretical background.
We enjoy the peace and seclusion on the farm despite the proximity to the city. The farm community is friendly and we support each other. Campfire evenings are just as much a part of it as occasional “pitching in”, for example when a fence is being renewed. Age, origin and “training goals” of the people and horses here on the farm play only a minor role. We are united by the love of Icelandic horses and the desire to spend time with the horses in nature.
