Accommodation

Saläng was built in 1936 formerly called Hästhagen (meaning Horse Meadow) and so the site still remains an equestrian center. For those traveling through, an overnight stay is possible, or longer vacation stays can be arranged to relax and spend quality time on site. The accommodation is in a guesthouse with access to the bathroom and kitchen in the main house. There are a couple of rooms in the house available.

The horses

Paint-horses originally descend - like the Quarter-horse - from the first horses that Spaniards brought with them to America in 1400. Later, these horses cross-bred and the result was a compact muscular horse that was extremely fast over short distances.

Formerly, Paint-horses were mostly used for ranch work, but today they are used mostly in Western riding, on galloping lines but also for jumping, dressage, and driving. When a Paint-horse is born without white markings or with few markings, it is known as a Solid-Paint. Paint-horses and Quarter-horses are the same breed.

Saläng is situated around 15 kilometers south of Falköping in a beautiful area. There is a small village five kilometers away with stores, banks, a library, a medical center, a pizza restaurant, and a railway station.
