The story about Wisbohammar

The farm Wisbohammar is located approximately six miles south of Stockholm on a fantastic peninsula next to the lake Frösjön. In 1765, one of Sweden’s most famous poets, Carl Michael Bellman, lived with his family on the farm. Today, Wisbohammar is owned by the family Hofmann who runs the stable with the aim that both animals and people should feel welcome and at rest on the grounds.

Riding arenas and paddocks

Wisbohammar is equipped with two indoor riding arenas – one small with the dimensions 40m x 20m and one larger, heated with the dimensions 20m x 67m. The farm also has three big outdoor arenas – one dressage arena, one jumping arena on grass and one fantastic terrain course. There is also a nice little beach nearby that you can ride to if you want to cool off your horse or work out in the waterfront. In terms of paddocks, we have a large variety of these depending on what your horse needs. We have large lawn paddocks, medium-sized gravel paddocks with paddle padding and smaller paddocks for stallions or horses on rehabilitation. Wisbohammar Dressage has further chosen to invest in a “horsewalker” who goes out with the horses.

Stables

We have two newly built, modern and fully equiped stables that can fit up to 40 horses. The stables are built with an open plan solution to increase the well-being of the horses. Each horse can look out through windows and out from their boxes in the front. The main stable also has a large solarium and the whole yard is equipped with camera surveillance.

Equipment and storage

All our stables are equipped with large, nice and heated saddle chambers. In our competition stable we also have a spacious laundry room with good drying facilities. There is plenty of room for equipment in our custom built cabinets. Our horses are fed with St Hippolyt müsli and IFORM pellets. We set up a well-balanced feeding schedule for each horse individually, depending on their traning. We believe that with a good hay silage you can get very far, therefore we do not give our horses large amounts of müsli and pellets.

The hotel and Café Bellman

In 2015, we built the “hotel”, which is equipped with several single-, double- and six-bed rooms for overnight guests. The hotel is equipped with a practical kitchen, a relaxation room and a large bathroom with a sauna. In order to make all guests feel happy and at ease, we chose to decorate the hotel in pastel colors. Right next to the hotel is the Café Bellmann, where we offer our customers homemade breakfast, lunches and dinners. The cafe works perfectly as a venue for seminars and events.
