Equestrian centre Honsolgen
The Empl sisters have their own equestrian centre. - Dominika and Amelie Empl fulfilled their dream of running their own riding facility when they established the Honsolgen Equestrian Centre in Buchloe.
Leisure and competition riders
Both sisters have three sport horses themselves, three broodmares, one pensioner and six horses in training. Dominika Empl rides her horses at home as a hobby, while Amelie Empl is a passionate show rider. One of Amelie's most memorable successes was in 2016 when she became the Bavarian Women’s Showjumping Champion with her Brandenburger mare Levita II. She had already previously won the Swabian Championships. The mare Levita II is especially dear to Amelie Empl's heart. “You only have a horse like that once in your life. She always fought for me and did her best," Amelie comments with a smile.
Equestrian facility completely renovated
When you enter the Honsolgen riding facility, although you may not believe it at first, purchasing the riding facility has meant a tremendous amount of work for the two sisters. They completely gutted and renovated the riding facility. In addition to all the renovation work, daily training as well as university studies and all the office work also had to be taken care of.
The Empl sisters chose Röwer & Rüb's quality and expertise for the equestrian centre's equipment. Marc Poppel actively advised and assisted them and accompanied the project from the beginning of the planning phase through to installation. For the 33 horse stalls, the two sisters chose the Hamburg model. The front walls of the Hamburg model are equipped with a feeding flap and two crossboards. This looks particularly stylish. Each horse stall has a paddock and was equipped with exterior doors from Röwer & Rüb. This allows the horses to enjoy the fresh air and to go out to the paddock as they wish. The partition walls between the horses are equipped with contact gratings, which enable each horse to have visual and social contact with their respective stable neighbours. The curved screen in the front area of the partition wall gives the horse the opportunity to enjoy some privacy and to be undisturbed while eating.
Movement for daily needs
In order to offer the horses safe and controlled exercise in addition to their daily work, the Honsolgen Equestrian Centre was extended with a circular horsewalker with a track roof and a lungeing arena. The lungeing arena enables the horses to be walked or lunged in all weathers. The large roof overhang provides protection for open walls, also against driving rain, and is visually very appealing. By installing the circular horsewalker with track roof the two sisters can let the horses use it all the time, even in bad weather conditions. The roof keeps the track dry and the horses can be exercised despite bad weather.
