Want to know more? At our Veranda and in Havana Horses Lodge, you will find a library of useful titles on natural horsemanship, natural horse keeping, hoof care and horses in general; and a variety of magazines in English, Dutch and Indonesian.
For those who love both the excitement of horses and of well written detectives, we have an elaborate collection of the books by champion jockey Dick Francis.
