Spain. The Yeguada Palacio de Villafruela is located in the middle of the rural idyll of northern Spain, more precisely in Perales near Palencia. Spacious pastures as far as the eye can see as well as grass paddocks that surround the manor house and horse stables. Breeding of jumping horses is a very important aspect of the work of the Yeguada Palacio de Villafruela. Spanish warmblood horses have been successfully bred here for years. A total of ten broodmares graze together with their foals on the pastures. The older mares can relax while grazing on the neighbouring meadows. The facility is in a gorgeous setting with wonderful views and offers heavenly conditions for the horses.
A former cattle barn serves as a horse stable. Before its renovation it was too dark for the horses and not suitable for their accommodation. For this reason extensive reconstruction work was required. Thanks to the expert advice of our Spanish partner Sotoancho Instalaciones Hípicas, the cattle barn has been transformed into a spacious and bright horse stable that enhances the overall ambience of the stud. The client’s wishes and ideas were adapted to the structural conditions and used as a basis for further design and development. A horse stable has been built where the broodmares can enjoy their ideal surroundings.
