The Samain-Community in Arnleithen

The owner of the estate, who had lovingly restored the place, was taken with the idea of the riders to live here, to own horses and meadows and to grow in community. So he let the place to the community. In December 1996 Barbara Heinrich and a friend signed the lease contract and after renovation of the apartments they were the first to move to Arnleithen on February 1st, 1997.

So from 1997 on the place is a home for a community with their horses, a place for meeting and adventure, a place to live a dream together.

Some years later another chummy place was founded in the Oberpfalz, the Samainhof.

From Arnleithen people moved to the Samainhof, others came to Arnleithen. So the community of today was established.

For the 4 friends dream came true when they finally bought the farm in 2014. Arnleithen is now our home, for us, for our horses, for the goats and a cat - and all our friends to live and to celebrate lifetime. (read more)

Geburtstag 1999 Garten 1999 Soon, the farmhouse and the garden in Arnleithen become a place to meet for many friends, a place for communication, for being together, to celebrate (photos of 1998 and 1999).
The friends love Arnleithen as a starting point for long trekking rides, there is enough space for trailers and horses on our meadows. Highlights - especially for the kids - are the hikes with packing horses, which are organized by Anna and Barbara (1999). Wanderreiter 1999 Packpferdewanderung 1999
