Sleedride  Troika  Troika
Our horses are known by radio and television. In 2002 they were mentioned six times on TV, e.g. RTL, ARD, BR3, SAT1, MDR and Bavarian radio broadcasting. Our Troika (three-horse carriage) with three white horses is unique in Bavaria. A Troika is an old Russian way of harnesssing horses. It was also common in the USA. In German it is called: "Schnelle Einspannung". The middle horse is the guidance horse, in this case "Felix, the professor". The exterior horses draw the carriage. Earlier, big distances like those between Bad Ischl and Peterburg were easily managed. If you like more information, look at our photo page.
