Horseback riding Ameland

Let op: u kunt via het menu wisselen naar Nederlands! / Bitte beachten Sie: Über das Menü können Sie zur Deutschen Version wechseln!


Always wanted to ride on a horseback on the beach of Ameland? Book a trail ride, riding lesson or ‘walking pony’ with us, or check out our possibilities for pension stabling.

Please note: Because of the predicted heat wave we are closed between 13:00 and 19:00 from Thursday, August 6 to Monday, August 17. Trail rides will take place in the evening then. 

All trail rides are fully booked until Friday, August 14. There are still places available for other activities. Would you like to make a reservation for a trail ride for another day? Please do not hesitate to contact us then! Every day between 12:00 and 13:00 we have a break, then we are not reachable by phone for an hour. You can easily send us a Whatsapp then!

Rijstal Le Cheval is located at the beatiful Island Ameland, at the edge of the village of Ballum. At our stable you have the opportunity to make a trail ride, follow riding lessons or rent a pony to walk with while your child is riding. In addition, we also organize nice pony afternoons in the summer, where children can interact with the pony’s and learn about them in a playful way.

It is important to us that we are a small stable. We make outdoor trails in small groups under professional guidance. Also the riding lessons are given in small groups of up to eight children. Of course you also have the opportunity to book private lessons or trails. Since we operate in small-scale, we reccomend you to reserve in time. 

Would you like to take your horse with you on your holiday? We offer stabling and grazing. Our stable is perfectly located on the equestrian route to the beach. In addition, you can also use our outdoor riding arena.

Is there anything more beatiful than exploring the beautiful island of Ameland on a horseback? Please do not hesitate to take a further look on our website for the possibilities

Rijstal Le Cheval and Corona

We are very happy that we can open our doors in these times. However, we can only perform our activities within certain boundaries. We are convinced that we can provide you with a pleasant and friendly service within these boundaries, as we are used to. The small scale in which we work makes this doable, but it does require cooperation with regard to the following points:

Horse riding for children
We are allowed to offer riding lessons and trail rides for children up to and including the age of 18, as long as this is done (1) under supervision, (2) outdoors and (3) without spectators. For children aged 13 to 18 years, this also has to be done at a distance of one and a half meters from each other. Walking ponies for children up to the age of 12 can also be rented again, as long as the person who walks with the walking pony is a member of the child’s family.

Horse riding for adults
For adults, we currently simply plan trail rides and riding lessons in groups, as long as this is done (1) under supervision, (2) outdoors (3) without spectators and (4) at a distance of one and a half meters from each other.

Stabling your hourse at our stable is simply possible. Of course, the applicable social and hygiene measures must be followed. This means that we have to keep 1,5 meters distance from each other. Furthermore, we have to make sure that not too many people are riding at the same time. For the use of the arena, we therefore keep a schedule at the stable.

Concrete elaboration of the measures
– A maximum of 1 customer may be at the counter at a time, behind a line marked on the ground. Other people have to wait outside.
– Only personnel is allowed in the stables.
– Payment can be done (1) contactless by pin or (2) in cash (cash has no preference).
– People who come to ride usually come alone. Parents should drop off the children at the stable, and then leave again. Of course parents are able to make payments at the counter. 
– The horses are saddled by us.
– With walking ponies, we help the children getting into the saddle. Then we deliver the pony to you as follows: we hold the pony on a long rope; then you can attach a long rope yourself to the halter of the pony, to which we loosen our rope. In this way we can keep one and a half meters distance from each other. Bringing back the pony is done in the same way.
– For trail rides, you have to get on the horse yourself with a stool. We will hold the horse for you.
– Do not stay in the stable longer than necessary.
– Both customers and employees are advised to stay at home with complaints such as a cold, cough or fever.

Eigenares Agnes was geweldig aan de telefoon met uitleg wat er allemaal mogelijk was. Mijn dochter en man kozen voor... een strand tocht naar het strand en hebben genoten. Dochter heeft ook nog een les gehad. Perfecte les stijl. Helaas is dat bij ons in Engeland niet meer te vinden door alle safety regels. We komen zeker nog een keer terug.lees meer
