Like all the German State Studs, Schwaiganger is committed to supporting the German Sport Horse breeding and preserving old and local special breeds.
They are a centre of competence in the equine world providing recognised apprenticeships and access to horses and riding for the public.
Schwaiganger's horses are reared and trained following the 'classic guidelines'. All horses are turned out into the vast fields around the stud. They received excellent training, in their disciplines and in daily handling, which makes them outstanding sport and for pleasure partners.
The young horses grow up in groups of peers on vast fields, which is so important for their health and behaviour later on.
Schwaiganger also provides horses for the Police, which underlines the outstanding reliability of the stud's horses.
