Our Horses

Horses and Humans

Our beautiful 11 horses are our team – we couldn’t do this without them! We pride ourselves with providing them with exceptional care both physically and mentally. Their wellbeing and happiness is our #1 priority.

The herd has been built over the years. At first, it was 8: Zara, Bolinhas,  Loretta, Lola, Paloma, Lua who knew each other already, and Ellie and Tina who joined the herd back in the end of 2016.

Hakita arrived in May 2017, followed by Jennifer Lopez in September 2017. Last, but not least, Severa joined the herd in July 2018.

All of our horses have rescue-backround. They have all (apart from Lua, who was born in the herd) known abuse of some description in their lives. Some have lived in solitude, some have been pulling carts with gypsies, some have suffered accidents… Only they know their darkest stories, but below you can find out more about each character and what he know of their background.

 

 

Horses
Humans

Country Quest is a small business ran by only two people, both passionate about horses and people.  We speak fluent English, Finnish and Portuguese.  You can get to know us better below.

Daniel – CEO & Finance

Daniel has a big heart for all animals and great natural skills with horses. Behind the scenes he can be found on the laptop engulfed in excel sheets calculating, estimating & budgeting. If not interacting with the horses, he is often seen building, fixing and creating solutions around the farm – he keeps it all going!

Pia – CEO & Operations

Pia has ever growing enthusiasm in respecting the horse as a living, sentiment being. She firmly believes that horses have a far greater purpose in life than just to  be a tool to be ridden. Her vast background with horses includes working in racing stables, riding schools as well as with hobby horses and at rescue farms. The more she studies and understands the horse as an animal, the softer her approach is becoming. She does not believe in violence or fear based training methods, but believes in the science of learning and creating a partnership with her horses.
