L'équipe: les gens, les chevaux et les cavaliers
We are lucky and thankful for it. We live and work in one of the most beautiful regions in bavaria. We are a large family, that has achieved a lot - and we have so much more in mind. We live here at Möningerberg with more than 30 Dreamhorses, surrounded by fields, hills and greens.
Building fences, making hay, foalings, the circulation of nature. Accompany colts in their first steps, bring them up to raines and saddle. That all grounds us and gives us the power for the abundance of our tasks.
Hans Thoma ist the head, heart und motor of our company. Together with his wife Helga Sülzle-Thoma he had bought the farm on Möningerberg about 20 years ago. Whenever he has time, you will find Hans in the saddle, enjoying the nature, always together with his true friends – his two dogs. He developped the different models of Iberosattel and is constantly searching for new features with his son Patrick.
The knowledge of Helga has great influence in the design of the saddles. The study of art has helped Iberosattel a lot. She also leads the studfarm. Helga lives for her horses, the studfarm and Iberosattel. She sometimes takes paint and brush to keep her balance.
Patrick Thoma is like his father graduated engineer. He is our specialist for saddle fitting. His know-how is mainly needed in technical questions and tricky matters. His passion is the fitting of difficult backs and he won’t be satisfied until the saddle fits the horse perfectly.
Daughter Miriam Thoma is a horsewoman through and through. She takes care of the colts. She is also an expert in saddle fitting at Iberosattel and has a great knowledge concerning horses and horsebacks. And if she isn’t on the road with the saddlebus or with her little family, you will find her riding.
Patrick’s wife, Birgit Thoma is responsible for marketing and the contact to our costumers and dealers. Birgit passionately likes to advise the customers and brings everything together in every way. Riding is her balance, but still being ambitioned.
Robert Schwab supports us on the telephone. He owns a beautiful PRE mare, born on Möningerberg. Robert is a friend of the family for many years.
Tanja Litzelman is in contact with all customers and dealers, also the foreign sales are in her hands. Her fluently English makes it easy to communicate worldwide. She travels through Germany on horseback. She has got the love to horses from her granddad and her aunt, growing up with horses. With 16 she got her first own horse. Tanja lives with her family, her horses, her shepherd, sheep and chicken on a farm.
Stefan Wolfrum is college and friend in our team. He started active riding competitions with ten years and since then he hasn’t lost the love to horses. Stefan enriches our company with his knowledge as a Horse Physiotherapist (DIPO) with his own therapy office since 2009. The health of horses is very important for him. The combination of physiotherapy and saddle fitting is ideal and inspired us right away.
Monika Riesner is our competence for financial belongings. All the accounting, billing etc. is in her hands since many years.
Anne Halbig is the main person in the office. She takes care of all belongings in the office. Luckily she is also a horsewoman. She has been with horses since she can think. Anne rides an Ibero Amazona Comfort and she and her pony Maxl love it. Mutual trust is very important for Anne, also to ride in harmony and have fun.
Diana Schaller has been an Iberosattel-Rider since many years. She distributes and fits the saddles. She owns horses for 16 years and a great goal for her is constantly working on herself and visiting many further educations. She has trained many ways of riding, including western, baroque and old Califorian riding style.
