We had a wonderful second visit to the Eilbergs on 8 August 2017.
As last time, Geri and Ferdi were very welcoming. We watched horses at all levels in a wonderful constant stream throughout the morning. In between talking to the riders, Ferdi gave us a commentary about each horse, its age, history and any other pertinent facts. He answered our questions patiently and the time flew by. All his horses looked beautiful and in wonderful health.
After the riding was over we had tours of their fields occupied by this year’s mares and foals and met youngsters broken and unbroken, many related. I think we all felt we were looking at the stars of the future as the foals showed some of their movement and individuality. We also had a look at the tackroom and around the stables.
We were all grateful to Geri and Ferdi and the rest of their team for the time they gave us. It was all fascinating and on behalf of the BHS and all who came on the visit, a big thank you to the Eilberg Family.
