“In our equestrian centre the most important thing is the welfare of the horses, therefore we have a farm of three hectares provided with all necessary facilities for their wellbeing” (Vera Schweizer, manager of the centre).

They have started the riding centre La Rivera in 2013 with lots of enthusiasm and effort, and they are happy and satisfied to live their dream of harmony between horses, humans and nature. Vera has completed her master of Hipotherapy and is working as riding teacher and touristic riding guide.
