Because of the Covid19 pandemic we postponed the 2020 program for 2022!

11-23 July 2022

an intensive residency designed for artists interested in combining equine studies and visual arts. We are looking for artists interested in horse culture, as well as riders interested in art. The work will include daily practice and lessons of horsemanship, equestrian archery, anatomically correct riding. Discussions and lectures will be held with the main focus on fine art research and a focus on drawing. The program is running since eight years in a series for years to come and is centered around different research themes. This summer we will focus on drawing. We interpret contemporary drawing widely and we think of the process conceptually. Guest lecturers will be invited, excursions will be organised. An exhibition will be organized open to the public in our new Riding Arena Gallery.

to deliver our interest into the field of international artistic research with opening up connections between equine culture and art. We would like to rethink art today in relation to horsemanship and riding. We are open for artistic practices coming from both, western and eastern traditions.
