Horses are simply part of the Münsterland - this is particularly evident at the North Rhine-Westphalian State Stud in Warendorf, the horse capital. It is the centre in NRW when it comes to breeding and equestrian sports. The regional podcast "SO ODER SO - dein Münsterland" (SO OR SO - your Münsterland ) presents the everyday life around horses in conversation with the employees.

Together with Münsterland reporter and radio journalist Dennis Burk, listeners take a look behind the scenes of this special place. 100 horses are housed here in the historic stables. The 80 employees look after their daily well-being and trainees also share the fascination for horses here.

Short and compact, the podcast from Münsterland e.V. takes excursionists, connoisseurs and new discoverers on an acoustic tour between country idyll and city flair in just a few minutes.

The podcast episode can be heard at and on all common audio platforms.
