The heart of Hofgut Albfuehren is our modern stud with space for up to 150 horses. The spacious facility with two outdoor arenas and three riding arenas offers optimal conditions for the education, training and marketing of young jumpers and dressage horses that are promoted to advanced levels.
Our stallion station is the flagship and attraction for horse breeders.
We are particularly proud of the collaboration with the Swiss Olympic champion Steve Guerdat. Since 2014 he has been presenting Albfuehrer horses at international show jumping tournaments worldwide, which means that Hofgut is well represented in top sport. In 2015 he won the FEI World Cup Final in Las Vegas with Albfuehren’s Paille de la Roque. In addition to competitive sport, horse breeding is an important part of the mosaic for Albfuehren. Our six top-class stallions with the best international genes have already produced countless young athletes.
Since everyone starts small, our foals first spend a carefree summer with their mothers before they are old enough to go their own way. After weaning, they grow up far away from the hectic and stressful life, but under the eyes of our horse hosts, in herds and thus have the best prerequisites for a promising future. We also offer young people the opportunity to learn their dream job in equestrian sports. Every year we train horse landlords in the fields of classic riding training, husbandry and service as well as breeding.
We are happy to conduct farm tours with our restaurant and seminar guests, during which we can inform you about the philosophy and the day-to-day operations of the entire company.
