“Augusta Stallis” stables are located in the territory of the once popular Mālpils Gardening Grounds. Today, the farm is home to 11 of its own horses, as well as horses from other owners. The owners have devoted their love and efforts to improving the environment and are willing to share their passion for horses with those who want to get to know and understand them in exchange for a huge dose of love, joy and energy.
The horse has a particular energy that has the power to brush away the everyday pressures. You approach the horse, cuddle it, and feel its special smell, body warmth and peace. You experience the magic of the here and now, as ordinary problems are left behind the stable door. You realise that you do not want to answer the phone and be caught up in the chores anymore, because you want the magic of being with horses to never end.
At “Augusta Stallis” stables, we believe that the true path to a horse is through learning about the horse’s world. Which you cannot discover sitting on horseback. A horse’s routine is not just about eating grass or hay, but also about explaining relationships, caring for each other, “catching” human attention and playing with each other.
