The Haflinger foal farm Ebbs (Haflinger Fohlenhof Ebbs) is one of the most significant Haflinger stud farms worldwide. Already the Celts discovered this spot of land at the foot of the Zahmer Kaiser mountain for horse breeding. Today, however, the farm features some 100 Haflinger horses and is popular both with adults and children and of course horse enthusiasts. Two indoor riding arenas and stables with 100 boxes are accessible. Horses spend winter in their stables, while foals pass summer on alpine pastures. To the stud belong 10 hectares of closures as well as a an area for carriages with dressage course and six fixed hurdles. Trained and certified staff also give horse riding lessons.
In the Haflinger foal farm Ebbs there is also a Haflinger horse and horse carriage museum, featuring a collection of carriages. Many exhibits are more than 100 years old, but could still be used. Part of the exhibition is also dedicated to the historical aspect of hourse breeding, illustrated by documents and photographs. Also a range of awards and trophies won by horses of the farm are exposed. One of the highlights is the 200-year old original saddle which was used in the movie “The Last Valley” with Omar Sharif and Michael Caine as leading actors.
A visit in the Haflinger foal farm is also possible when the weather is bad, as most of the attractions are sheltered. However, while watching their children doing horseriding, parents can simply sit back and relax in the “Reiterstube” tavern and enjoy a snack. On February 1, 2013, in Ebbs the World Haflinger Federation (Weltverband der Haflinger) was founded, an organisation that also comprises South Tyrol (seat of the European Haflinger Horse Breeders Association) and North Tyrol (seat of the World Haflinger Association).
