about us

A family company from Salzburg, Austria with a passion for horse care

Marie-Christine Stelzhammer – Founder of CXEVALO Horesecare

As a passionate product developer I developed CXEVALO for the targeted care and relief of the sweet itch of my New Forest Pony Merlin, first. The result is a nature-inspired horse care series of the highest quality. Since then, CXEVALO has been an insider tip for healthy skin, hooves, hair and coat.


MERLIN - Source of Inspiration

I accompany Marie-Christine and Benedikt for more than ten years now and what can I say? Lucky me! Because in my younger years it turned out that I suffer very badly from sweet itch. Every summer my heavy itching made me desperate and I looked terrible with all my rubbing marks. But still then both of them took me into their heart and Marie-Christine started to create a care series especially for me. Since then I can enjoy the summer and hey I look very handsome again too. I love testing now all the new creations Marie-Christine developes and I am very greatful for the big relief CXEVALO has given me.


Benedikt Stelzhammer - Creative Director

Our goal is to create the best possible horse care products in an appealing design! I am inspired by the French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, who says: Perfection is achieved when you can’ leave anything out.


Ulrike Stelzhammer - Planning and Sales

I joined as a relative newcomer from a different background and take care of all the required stages of planning and manoeuvring that ensure our Cxevalo horse care products make it to your care kit. Whether online sales platforms, retailers or appearances at trade fairs. As a result, there's a lot to plan, organise and realise. Luckily my office is right beside the mind behind the Cxevalo team, Marie, and we can discuss all matters swiftly and without complication. Then, when we've had enough desk work, I take a walk with Marie to her beloved Merlin and live out my secret childhood dream – learning horse riding.
