What makes these calendars special ...
The Principal and State Stud of Marbach is a place full of tradition - a place where great attention is given to horse breeding and the preservation of riding and driving culture. Marbach is not simply a stud - it is also a cultural heritage, an equestrian institution to which countless people make a pilgrimage every year and which first featured in a historical document 500 years ago.
This calendar gives an insight into the oldest state stud in Germany. A small horsey paradise in the heart of the Swabian Alb.
„Das Haupt- & Landgestüt Marbach hat mich in seinen Bann gezogen und seit über 20 Jahren gehöre ich zu den immer wiederkehrenden Besuchen: Immer wieder versuche ich mit der Kamera einzufangen, was Marbach ausmacht: Das Zusammenleben von Mensch und Pferd und die unvergleichliche Atmosphäre. . . .
"... Marbach also won my profound affection 20 years ago and since then I have returned time and time again to the stud. On each of these numerous visits I try to capture the special charm of Marbach with my camera: a close-knit community in which humans and horses live and work together in a unique atmosphere. Marbach is a unique arrangement of wonderful countryside, historical buildings, magnificent horses and people‘s love of horses which – after all – is the bonding and nurturing force behind the whole concept. I shall always continue to render homage to Marbach with my pictures and try to convey to all people why a place like Marbach is of such crucial importance to society as a whole – and will also remain so in years to come. ..."

Photo book Marbach
500 years of Marbach
Marbach is unique! It is a State Stud 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, in which horses and people harmonize, in which the welfare of the horses is paramount. It is a place that many people visit to experience horses up close. Marbach is also an institution where first-class sport horses are bred and a training center for many professional riders. In this book, the photographer Gabriele Boiselle captured in emotional pictures and sensitive texts what Marbach is all about, interweaving history and the present in an interesting way. It is a narrative illustrated book with many details, which allows the reader to look behind the scenes of everyday stud farm work, with portraits of stud horses and people working there for generations. A state stud was rarely portrayed closer and more sensitively.
