About Us

georg oberkofler san genesio


A whole herd of sassy blond-maned horses sprint in a frenzied gallop across the fields, cheerful and high-spirited. After their run, cosy straw-lined stalls provide ample space to rest. Our Haflinger horses have recently settled into their new home: with a Haflinger stud farm, riding stables, and boarding facilities for horses, Unterwirt is a true paradise for horses.

Here, in the Haflinger’s area of origin, our approximately 50 horses are exercised amidst fragrant meadows and fairytale larch forests and – who knows? – maybe even appreciate the stunning views of the majestic Dolomites.



Right next to the farm, newly opened with a spacious design in 2012, is the arena: it is here that, since 1969, horse lovers – both large and small – have taken their first steps on horseback. Beyond, endless meadows and larch forests are an invitation to exhilarating exploration on four hooves along tranquil paths through the forest and woods of the sun-kissed Salten Plateau.

This good-natured, surefooted little horse is ideally suited for children and beginners. With plenty of spirit and excellent endurance, the Haflinger is also the perfect partner on long trail rides. In Jenesien and on the sunny Salten Plateau, it’s possible to ride in winter and summer alike. Our horse farm is thus open for your enjoyment the whole year round!
