General description:
Are you loving horses and water? Want to have fun and relaxation in your holidays? But also learn more riding skills? Then our riding holidays are perfect for you!

A lot of riding, swimming, canoe, boat and driving carriage and a lot more! Of course you get qualificated riding lessons every day from an experienced riding instructor. So when you go back home, you could say, I have learned a lot more. Also working on the ground with horses and riding outs in the fields and woods. If it´s too hot outside we only go swimming in the lake next door. With or without horses.

Mindless riding in the riding place is not yours? No problem: We have always new ideas! Jumping, bareback riding, dressage exercises, riding games and trails. The special: Here you are on the way with same olded girls. No little ridergirls. Mean, we can properly start. :-)
