in the ideal case doma natural begins early

Get an inside look on ranch live and daily training with our Doma Natural training method, ride and stroll around in the natural surroundings of the park and relax in one of our comfortable cabins.

A typical day of our program is like the following:

At 8.30 breakfast with natural products of the ranch and our neighbors. While enjoying fresh homemade bread and marmalades we fix the schedule of training for today. We repass the last training steps of every horse and fix what will be the next to do. We try to preview possible reactions of each horse and how to avoid negative reactions. After breakfast we bring the horses in with which we will work, check their health and start training. We normally start with the youngest horses in order to begin with the lowest level of training followed by the more mature horses. After Lunch it is usually time for a riding lesson and/or a ride through the park, controlling fences and the other animals who live in the park.
