Naturacavall is an exciting and unusual project that proves that business and charity goes hand in hand just fine
It all started with Joan Ferrer’s passion for horses, which he passed onto his sons Xavier and Joan Pere in their early childhood. Xavier sometimes jokes that he learned to ride a horse before riding a bike.
Thus, the family spent their free time exploring the diverse nature of the island off the beaten path on horseback experiencing the island on old tracks in the mountains and along the coast of Mallorca.
In 2019, the three Mallorcan cowboys decided to dedicate their lives entirely to horses in order to share their passion with enthusiasts from all over the world – Naturacavall was born.
We now have 26 horses, which Naturacavall have gradually rescued from adverse life situations.
Unfortunately there are still remote farms and fincas on the island of Mallorca, where horses are kept under dire circumstances, trotting race horses who no longer qualify, or simply those who have not adapted well to their environment and need a second chance.
The family buys these horses and gives them time and space to recuperate and adapt back at their farm. They are often in need of intensive care, a carefully regulated diet and checks from the Vet.
For many generations the Ferrers have lived in the countryside near Manacor, in the middle of the Mediterranean landscape near the center of the island in the Llevant area of Mallorca. The horses live together in herds in large fields and enjoy a free and well cared for life.
Over time Naturacavall team has grown and yet it maintains an unmistakable family vibe – together we take care of the horses and train them, united by our love to give each animal another chance at life and of course to live some adventures together out in the wild.
