Do you love horses? Would you like to start experiencing being with these beautiful animals in your spare time? Maybe you have been riding before, or used to ride regularly as a child? Whether you are a beginner, a returner or have been a passionately enthusiastic rider for years, you will get your money's worth with us.
Time is precious and scarce, so we want to give you the opportunity to make the most of it. To this end, we have developed offers for you that enable you to learn how to handle a horse and how to ride, or to expand your existing knowledge or skills.
Our offers at a glance:
During the North Sea Weekend (2 days) you initially get to know your horse through ground work. Here we show you how to lead your horse correctly and you will learn how body language contributes to an improved understanding between human and animal.
In the two following riding lessons you will learn the basics as a beginner and enjoy your first riding experience at walk and trot. As a returner, we allow you to take your time to get back on a horse again, and to re-adjust to riding. You will see: Skills you have already learned will be revived and you will also absorb a lot of new information. Even riders with years of experience will be able to expand their knowledge through tips from riding instructors, simply by riding in a new environment on an unknown horse and with a new coach.
Riding is a sport! Your sore muscles will testify to that. A supplementary sports unit or equine theory session will help you to recognise and use the connections between physical fitness, balance and success in the schooling arena
Finally we leave the schooling arena. On horseback or at the horse's side you can explore our riding tracks or take a walk on the dike and the koog. If the weather is not so good, you can always ride in the indoor school.
You can extend the weekend by an extra day.
During the relaxation and fitness week (7 days) you will give yourself the change to go deeper into the sport of riding. In this programme you will intensify your understanding of your horse over nine riding lessons and two ground work lessons and you will able to recognise details about your horse's personality and to build a deeper level of trust. How is your horse today? Take a good look. The work you do by your horse's side is just as important as the work you do on his back. The theory and supplementary sports lessons will also help you here. To balance things out, we will go for two hacks this week either/or going out across our own riding tracks or out on the koog. You also have the opportunity to book a massage with an experienced physiotherapist. Grab the opportunity!
Whichever offer you choose You can look forward to a great time with a nice group of interesting people of all ages, friendly chats… maybe expect a few sore muscles… as well as wonderful experiences with a wonderful animal. Fresh breezes from the North Sea and the intensive work with the horses will allow you to fall into bed tired but happy at the end of the day.
All offers are inclusive of full-board and free soft drinks. Accommodation is in shared rooms, which you can also book for your sole use (single room supplement €12 /day). If you need towels and bedlinen please let us know when you register (€15 surcharge/stay).

Depending on what you've learned, you can ride on or off the lunge-rein, alternating if necessary, and learn how to adapt to the movements of the horse and improve your body awareness and position.
This programme is aimed at beginners. You don't need any prior knowledge of riding.
We offer this riding lesson with individual tuition for 1-2 persons.
Length: 90 minutes.
We require advance booking for both these offers.
