About us

Lantana

The sweet and patient warmblood mare is our allround talent. She makes an excellent hippotherapy horse, as she provides great movement due to her dressage training. Her wonderful and reliable character make her a great partner for all of our other interventions. 

She is schooled with a focus on dressage work once a week by Esther to ensure that our clients get the best benefit of her movement.

Lantana spends her free time on the pasture with her friends as a good work - life - balance is very important to us.
