Tame and Training - Sale

Marco Trafelli is our "man of the horses". He is a very competent and professional individual with many years of experience and is personally in charge of the preparation and training of young horses as well as of the training of those upset and troubled ones, always respecting the horse. He adopts a path and methodology of growth and progress that is well organized and established for every kind of horse; from the one with a difficult behavior to the more exuberant and prevailing. This is a tame/training based on the principles of Ethology therefore aiming to communicate with the horse by respecting its times and learning skills.
We have several horses of different ages, races and origins for sale. Most of the horses for sale belong to the race from Maremma. These are young horses and adults with optimal character and good level of training.
All horses can be at livery in two different locations; in paddocks of about 300 square meters each and with hut, water and manger or in a stable like the English way in horseboxes of several sizes and types. Horsebox litter is made of wood chip-based non-pulverized and controlled or, according to availability this can be made of straw and it is cleaned daily by removing waste. Feeding occurs 3 times a day: in the morning, during the day and in the evening with hay and grains produced in our farm and specific pelleted and balanced horse food.
On our farm we breed horses of different breeds but, we mainly breed Maremmana race horses that represent the ideal mount of the cowboy from Maremma, is excellent for the amateur horseback riding, ideal for trekking, walking, or sporting activities and can compete with the rest of the national production.
