Bazenheid in the Swiss canton of Sankt Gallen is where a young couple has made their dream of owning their own horse stables come true. Riding, riding, riding! Katja Wagner has been surrounded by horses since she was a child and already caught the horse bug when she was very small. Katja grew up on a farm which also kept horses. Her parents run the Wagner Freiberger Stables in Niederbüren in the canton of Sankt Gallen. They offer riding lessons and carriage rides with their strong-charactered Freibergers. Every year they also train young horses for the field test.
Katja's partner Tobias, a trained farmer, also grew up on a leasehold farm in Bütschwil in Sankt Gallen. In April 2018 Katja and Tobias were lucky enough to acquire a farm in Bazenheid. Since then they have been running a 38-hectare dairy farm and also grow fruit. They were naturally also really keen to keep horses on the farm. Unfortunately the existing buildings were not suitable for horses.
