- Trail rides
We offer the possibility to make a trail ride with us all year round, at a beginning, intermediate or advanced level. We follow beautiful routes across the beach, through the dunes and through the forest. The trail rides take place in small groups of up to six people under supervision. Because of our small scale it is advisable to book in advance. Feel free to contact us for more information. Please contact us outside the opening hours via the contact form, text or Whatsapp. You will normally receive a response within 24 hours. Also during the opening hours it’s the best to contact us via the contact form, text or Whatsapp, we will try to answer as soon as possible. For trail rides we have a weight limit of 90 kg. (198 pounds) for advanced riders and 85 kg. (187 pounds) for beginners or intermediate riders.
Please see here at which times our group trail rides go.
Group trail rides for beginners usually take 1,5 hours. Most of the trail ride will be walking, and depending on the group we will also do a little bit of trot. Adults or children with a minimum height of 1,60 meter (around 52,5 feet) who have no experience with horseback riding can join a beginners group. Children who are smaller can join when they already have some experience with horseback riding.
Intermediate trail rides in a group usually take 1,5 hours. We will do a lot of trot, but no canter. Everyone who has a good balance in trot and can do rising trot well, can join an intermediate trail ride. Normally that is the case from around 1 year of experience.
Advanced trail rides in a group usually take 1,5 hours. We will do a lot of trot, and on the beach we normally do long parts of canter. The canter can sometimes go pretty fast, but we do no gallop. Everyone who has a lot of experience with horseback riding can join an advanced trail ride. This means that you have a good balance in all gaits, and that you are well able to keep the horses behind each other. Experience in making trail rides is a plus. We are very careful with children. Sometimes we would first like to see how children ride in the riding arena before they join an advanced trail ride.
In the months of July and August, every Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. we make a 2-hour trail ride for intermediate or advanced riders.
In addition to the group trail rides, you also have the option to reserve a private trail ride. The trail ride is then fully adjusted to the level of the rider.
