SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN provides a functional and near-nature environment for the keep and raising of thoroughbred mares and youngstock.
Excellent individual care
We only accept a fairly small amount of boarders at SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN. This allows us to ensure that each team member has the time to get to know your horse and treat it with individual and extensive care. Together with our trusted external team of excellent vets and international experts, we ensure the optimal care of your horse.
Vast nutritious grounds
SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN consists of around 120 ha of land, sitting on deep limestone, rich in minerals and micronutrients. It offers the ideal prerequisites for raising horses with strong and healthy bones. About 60 ha of land are used for 16 fields up to 5 ha in size. Twelve small- and medium-sized paddocks complement the fields and are used to accustom foals to the outside and host yearling colts during the sales preparation process. All fields and paddocks are enclosed by wooden fences, hedges and trees, assuring a healthy micro climate for the horses. Regular grass and soil samples prove our combined method of natural fertilization, continuous maintenance and 'range and change' approach successful and ensure an ideal mineral balance for the horses all year around.
Large functional stables
SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN offers 39 state of the art horse boxes that are divided up between 5 barns and are 53 to 89 square feet each. All boxes dispose of large air volumes and the stall doors are barred all the way to the ground to ensure optimal ventilation. The foaling stables are equipped with cameras to allow for the continuous monitoring of mares and their offspring and newly arriving horses are accommodated in an isolation barn until the health of all horses can be assured.
Yearling preparation is a core part of our business and we provide a covered longe ring and a horse walker to exercise the horses in addition to walking them the traditional way by hand.
