The hotel resort has a modern equestrian hall measuring 40 x 20 metres. This allows us to provide horseback riding in any weather, and during the winter and summer months. We are not dependent on the weather. Jumps and other obstacles are available for experienced riders. In addition, when riding indoors, there are fewer stimuli to help keep your horse calm. The hall is safer and is equipped with slanted guardrails, which mainly protect the rider’s lower limbs. This makes horseback riding safe for children as well.
Riding courses are conducted individually. The instructor only focuses on you, one rider. Theory is connected with practice. The instructor explains the theory as you ride. The riding lesson starts with cleaning and saddling the horse. Then there is a ride in the riding school. In the riding school, students learn how to sit correctly, discover how to control and clarify the behaviour of the horse and its reactions, and get to know different horse gaits such as the walk, canter and trot. The minimum length of a lesson at the riding school is 30 minutes. Courses can be taken from Wednesday to Sunday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Another option is the riding ring, which is for children from 10 to 18 years old. It takes place once a week, most often on weekends and holidays. Children undergo routine horse care, prepare horses for riding and also ride horses.
If you have your own horse, you can ride with us, too. For hotel guests, we also offer the option to stable your horse in one of our 7 stable stalls. If you would like to visit us for several days, you can also use our fabulous accommodation. Horseback riding is really available to the general public!
