As almost every year right after the Egyptian Event, the Pyramid Society Europe did organise a farm tour – this time in the heart of Bavaria.
A lovely group of enthusiasts from different Countries, such as Germany, Netherlands, Danmark and Switzerland were joining the group.
The start of the tour was already on Sunday afternoon, right after the Event. For this purpose, Bettina von Kameke has chartered a small bus to go on tour. The very first stop was in Wassertrüdingen, where we have been welcomed by the whole Gerbershagen Family at their Goschenhof Stud. The Family presented their beautiful mares and the unanimous star of the stud – PSE Atlanta (Nader al Jamal x Imperial Baarezah). The impressive stallion knew very well how to present himself to the audience. After the presentation, the group was invited to enjoy a wonderful BBQ in the beautiful garden of the Farm.
On the following day, the road led us to the Farm of Khamal El Assuad from the well known breeder Otto Schmidt. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t too good, but to see the mares proudly presenting their 2019 foals made it really up. We were also able to see that PSE Atlanta really left his stamp on his progeny.
Because of the rain everybody found shelter in the barn and had dinner with the candle lights and horses.
The second day was definitely colourful with all the umbrellas…

The next highlight on the tour was Eulenthal Stud in Unterpindhart of Klaus Buchberger and his lovely wife Christiane. We were at first greeted by the black pearl GE Salima Bint Shade (GR Madhin x Shade El Chamsin), who was also presented at the Eygptian Event. The Farm owners guided their guests through their noble farm and showed them all of their beautiful mares.
After a Coffee break the group had to say goodbye and head on to the last stop of the tour: Ponnath Arabians in Kemnath. Who doesn’t know the famous slogan of the Farm «follow your dreams….» and it was surely a dream, what Michael Ponnath was presenting to his guests. Michael Ponnath showed his two main mare families out of the Dahman Shahwan and the Saklawi Gidrani line with their 2019 progeny. On top of all, Michael Ponnath proofed once again his great sense and eye for choosing the right Stallions for his mares and was presenting his new chief sire from the USA: Madheen El Masr (EAI Silvereen x MB Deseena), a proven sire of many international champions. But also his homebred stallion Mashour Halim (El Thay Khemal Pasha x Malikah Halima) impressed so many visitors.

Also the Farmtour of 2019 organised by the Pyramid Society Europe was once more perfectly organised, thanks to the Breeders and Members of the PSE, who made such an effort to welcome guests and to present their stunning horses.
