Buch - Haupt- und Landgestüt Marbach

500 years of Marbach

Marbach is unique! It is a stud farm that not only looks back on 500 years of horse breeding, but also impresses with its modernity and liveliness. It is a world of its own, where horses and people harmonise, where the well-being of the horses is the most important thing. It is a place that many people visit to experience horses up close. Marbach is also an institution where first-class horses are bred and a training centre for many professions. In this book, the photographer Gabriele Boiselle has captured in emotional pictures and sensitive texts what makes Marbach so special, interweaving past and present in an interesting way. It is a narrative illustrated book with many details, with a look behind the scenes of everyday life at the stud, with portraits of studs and special horses. Closer and more empathetic portraits of a state stud have rarely been made.

The book is only available in German language!

What is special about  this book ...

Gabriele Boiselle is very close to Marbach's heart: " ... This stud farm has fascinated me and for over 20 years I have been a recurring pilgrim. During my numerous visits, I always try to capture with my camera what Marbach is all about: the living and working together of man and horse and the incomparable atmosphere. Marbach is a unique combination of a wonderful landscape, historic buildings, magnificent horses and the love of people for horses, which holds everything together. I will continue to try to contribute with my pictures to pay homage to Marbach and to convey to people why we urgently need a place like Marbach in the future. ..."
