Haflingers are truly fascinating – beautiful, strikingly expressive and equipped with plenty of character. The breed originated at the heart of the Alps and was shaped and carved by life in these unique mountain landscapes. Here, Haflingers are not just one of many horse breeds: They have long been part of the culture and everyday life of the people in their homelands. At the same time, they have now become one of the most popular small horse breeds in the world.
This is a vivid account of what it means to grow up with a Haflinger, which significance the breed has for locals and how deeply rooted it is in its region of origin. What has forged the character and charms of the breed? What was life with a Haflinger like in the past, and what shape does it take today? Dotted with insights into the history of the breed and everyday local life, a common thread is woven through the three territories that make up the modern-day Euroregion Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino, highlighting the similarities and peculiarities that have come to characterise Haflingers and those passionate about them.
The Haflinger Trail guides the reader through the book and connects key locations in the past and the present of the breed. It is this connection that lies at the heart of a set of plans for a long-distance Haflinger bridle path across three territories and two countries: an equestrian route lined with enchanting points of interest at which to experience the fascination of Haflingers and get to know the people who have closely accompanied the breed throughout its history. Authentic encounters with horses and humans shaped by the nature and landscape in which they live and thrive: a foray into the past, present and future of the Haflinger breed.

Haflinger Horse Breeders' Associations Tyrol - South Tyrol - Trentino
Tyrol, South Tyrol, Trentino - three neighbouring lands with a shared history and a similar lifestyle, and an area where the Haflinger has played an important role in agricultural, cultural and economic development. The political separation of these regions after the First World War had far-reaching consequences on the work of the Haflinger breeding associations at that time. However, awareness of the importance of breeding associations in the Haflinger's land of origin has led to a reforging of our connection, here where it is such an important part of the culture, history and tradition of our lands, and a shared wish to safeguard its future on a worldwide level, both in breeding and in sport. That is why we created this publication which takes us on a horse-back ride through the European regions of Tyrol, South Tyrol and Trentino, home of the Haflinger.
