Latest news from the Flachenhof
Katharina Mur - cross-country leader VFS and trainer
Probably everyone who was on vacationwith us in the last 10 years knows her well. Ever since her first riding lesson she tends to our horses and despite her job as a nurse she lends a hand just about anywhere. We are very grateful to her. We are happy to see her thinking of acquiring a horse of her own after so many years abroad ... maybe it will be a Connemara :)
Our already grown-up daughter knows due to her various stays abroud people and horses all over the world. Alongside with her studies she likes to work with children and carries out forest- and environmental projects. With her favorite animals Klara and Ronja she is building on a great human-horse-dog-communication program.
Martina Rassler - dog instructor
Animals are Martinas passion and especially dogs. For that reason she passed a dog-instructor training at the dog school "Freude am Hund" in Munich. Her slogan is "with heart and mind". Together with our daughter Anna she supports and accompanies dog owners regarding the schooling of dog and human. She also advices people who plan to get a dog. For both instructors it is important that human and dog get to know each other better, train in a positive way and never forget the fun in it.
Anna Maria Prast - trail riding instructor and riding teacher
She stays with her haflinger anytime she is free. The mare moved in in April 2014 and takes part at the riding lessons. She passed successfully an educational training with Frauke Behrens. She combines this useful experience regarding biomechanics of human and horse with her riding lessons.
And there are so many more students, who grow up and become members of our team, because they do an internship at the farm or just help out a little wherever it is neccessary. Without our many helpers the life of animals and humans at the Flachenhof would not be the same.
