First documentary mention

The history of the farm and the Sosath family goes back to the 17th century. In 1647, the first ancestor was mentioned in a document. Until the fire in 1908, the farmstead was a classic farm with a cattle tract in front of the living area. A barn stood next to it on the left.

Focus: Horse husbandry

With the handover of the farm from Heino to his son Gerd Sosath in 1982, the business orientation changed fundamentally. From then on, the focus was on horse husbandry. While in the first years there was still fattening of pigs and bulls, the number of horses increased continuously in the following years. Horses were bought or bred, but always ridden by Gerd Sosath and presented at competitions - primarily in show jumping, but also in dressage and eventing. The construction of the first indoor riding arena in 1983 made it possible to work the horses at any time and in any weather. With 15x35m it was still quite small, but it was enough for the time being. The ten adjacent stalls also provided enough space for the riding horses.

Extensions

The breakthrough in dressage horse breeding came in 2002 with the self-bred stallion Stedinger, who became the Oldenburg Champion Stallion. In the same year, there were already ten sires at the Sosath stallion station. They were given optimal keeping conditions in the newly built stallion stable.

The last construction phase

The last construction phase was marked by the new riding facility in 2009. A large indoor riding arena (25x60m) with casino, flats, office, preparation room and stable wing as well as a large storage hall with adjoining open running stables for the young horses were built on the site of the former straw hall.
