I am Jessy, the daughter of July. I am a good beginner’s horse for both children and adults. I love lunges, jumping around, and am always very well-behaved during riding lessons. But what I love the most is going for a proper ride when I can let off some steam.
I’m a little bit afraid of tractors and trucks. Those giant things just look so fearsome *brrrrr*. In the summer I always get eczema that itches terribly and you have to rub me daily with ointment.p>
I am a modern bred Haflinger. This means: I am sportier than earlier Haflingers since we were mostly used for heavy work and not much for riding, unlike me.
On the meadow, I am the leader of the mares. And July, my mother, means everything to me. Maybe we will see each other during a riding lesson, or just come to visit me if you like. Have fun!

Neigh! I am Lara and first came to Millinghof in April 2014. After many years, my owner sold me to the Dürlinger family.
I made many friends here on the farm - at the beginning we got into a couple of scuffles, but now we get on famously.
To start with I was a little unsure about riding, but I really enjoyed learning all the new things.
I am really looking forward to you visiting me since I love being petted and given things to nibble on :-)

Hello, I am Onkel, I came to Millinghof in June 2004. A Leogang horse trader brought me here.
To start with I was not too pleased to be ridden by the instructor. I ‘bucked’ a little and would not go where she wanted me to. In the end, I did not work at all during my last year with the horse trader. I was only allowed to stand on the meadow and could sleep and do what I wanted.
I soon realised that the care and attention I received here was very good. I made lots of friends....now everything is going great (I have even put on a little weight) and I am very content. I can now take little kids out for rides. What I love most is jumping and going for a proper ride. Anyway, see you at the next riding session...

I arrived here at Millinghof on 24 April 2005. At the start, things did not go too well, I was so thin and weak that I had no desire to do anything.
In Austria I passed through the hands of many traders and caught lice and mites at some point along the way. Then I was bought by an Upper Austrian Tinker breeder. 2 months later the Dürlinger family came and bought me. First of all they de-loused and nursed me back to health ... then came the work.
I was resistant to begin with but then the saddle and the bridle did not seem so scary anymore. But now I am used to it and have become quite a sweetie. I especially like kids and my favourite thing to do is go for a long ride. Cows are the only things I do not like. See you soon and have a nice day.

Hello, my name is Schakira. I moved into Millinghof on 24 September 2005. Back then I was young and had lots to learn.
First of all we did lunges but this soon became really boring. You just go round in circles after all. Then I learnt how to run in the paddock, although it is not as though I was not able to do anything - previously I had been out in the open and being ridden in a paddock is much harder.
The corners especially. Then they said that I would be a good broodmare. After all I am beautiful and am especially proud of my mane, what do you think of it? See you when you go riding - have a nice day.

I originally come from Heiligengrabe in Germany. In January 2013 I arrived at Millinghof after living a few years in Tyrol.
At Millinghof I felt right at home and most of the other animals took kindly to me. My best friend here is Onkel - he looks just like me. I am always in a good mood and love getting tasty treats and being petted by you!
I wish you all the best and hope you have a nice day.
