About us

Thomas Rottensteiner

Certified by BESW in hoof care.

Since years, farmer with passion and responsible for everything related to the farm life - so to speak "the centerpiece" of the Flachenhof. In 1988 he inherited from his parents the land and laid down the foundation of the Flachenhof. Year after year, the farm has been extended and has developed into the special habitat which it is.


Thomas contributes to the preservation of the typical South Tyrolean landscape through the minimal use of machines. He manages by small creative details to give the Flachenhof its face – wherever you go you encounter his creative work.

As certified cross-country guide, master for hiking tours on horseback, riding instructor grade A and trainer (VFD), qualified groom for therapeutic riding and harness leader (FN) I am responsible for the horse riding on the farm. Riding lessons take place exclusively for our house guests!
In addition I am a certified nurse and work at the moment in part-time in the nursing care field. Additional qualifications are courses on "retirees at the farm", "Palliative Care & Hospice", theatre pedagogy, "tavern on the farm" and Yoga-teacher. Nature, animals and social care are for me all connected in a way and make my daily work varied.

"In 1990, I rode my pony from Chiemsee over the Alps to the Flachenhof. Together with my family I've built a riding stable. The species-appropriate treatment of animals and a riding style that goes easy on the horse are close to my heart. Our farm is a valuable home to us, our herd of horses and the rest of the animal crowd. My life: that is with people and their animals ..."
