La Corona Horse Residence is on a 170 hectare plot of land, in the middle of the countryside. We live right here, in the old country house on La Corona premises. We are horse lovers, they are part of our life and we are part of theirs. And we are very happy to live that way!
We are sure you want to know more about our background. We are agricultural and forestry engineers, animal lovers, and experts in nature, forest management and farming activities, and we want the best for the horses that live alongside us. On the other hand, several of our family members used to be well-known figures in the equestrian world for many years, while others are currently following their footsteps. All of this led to La Corona being turned into a horse residence. After five years, during which some one hundred horses have passed through La Corona Horse Residence, and while sharing our lives with them, making sure they are well-fed, treating any ailments or emotional problems, sharing their happiness and watching the relationships between them, we can say that we know these wonderful animals very well and that we know what they need to lead a full and happy life.
Some owners might worry about their horse "returning" to a life in freedom, in case the horse does not adapt well to their new environment. However in our experience, all the horses at La Corona Horse Residence are happy. Our mission is to ensure their physical and mental well-being (or growth, in the case of foals) as well as a happy and stable life.
We check up on the horses daily, to make sure we are aware of their physical and mental state. We get to know the horses to such an extent that they become more than horses to us. We know them as individuals with their own personalities, and their own desires. Every two weeks the horses, ponies and foals are brushed and cleaned, and their mane and tails are reviewed to make sure they are free of ticks and other parasites. You can feel safe in the knowledge that the well-being and health of your horse are guaranteed on a daily basis.
The horses that live in La Corona Horse Residence move freely and in herds, in extensive plots of land bordered with electric fences and including horse pastures, forests, shrubland, footpaths and water troughs with water. Most importantly, we guarantee that they will never get bored. The horses are rotated through different plots of land as the pasture runs out. In times of poor crop growth, they are provided with forage, which is produced mainly by us in the fields on the premises at La Corona. The extensive spaces and the periodic change of land gives horses, ponies and foals a great range of environments where they can act freely, making their own decisions and enjoying the company of other horses.
Many of our clients tell us that they see us as a "comprehensive solution" to their needs. At La Corona Horse Residence we ensure the welfare of your horse and guarantee we will monitor all their care and any additional treatments. We want you to be able to relax from your responsibilities, and feel at ease leaving everything in our hands. We take care of all the necessary treatments (vaccinations, deworming, podiatry and dentistry) and sporadic or additional treatments (physiotherapy, osteopathy, specific nutrition, follow-ups veterinarians, etc.) without adding any extra costs to the price of the treatment or product.
As you know, good nutrition is very important for a horse. It is an issue that we are very much aware of, because at La Corona Horse Residence we check the food quality of everything the horses eat. On our farm we produce most of the fodder that horses, ponies and foals eat in winter. We plant ourselves the pastures that the horses use to feed in spring, summer and autumn, and we make a careful selection of all food suppliers and food supplements.
All our pastures are cultivated using integrated ecological farming methods, and are excellent in terms of offering high-quality nutritional content. In the same way, we supervise the herbaceous crops that the horses will end up eating as they grow, with permanent checks on the results.
Relax, you can come whenever you like. Focus on enjoying your horse. You can come visit your horse whenever you want, enjoying his company and walking through the beautiful natural environment surrounding the premises. Just spending time with your horse, without thinking about anything else. La Corona is easily accessible and is located in the Moianès region (formerly known as Vallès Oriental), 40 km from Barcelona. We are close to the main transport infrastructures and there is a bus service in the nearby town, which means you can come spend time with your horse whenever you want.
