Holidays on the horse farm: fun and relaxation for the whole family

Holidays on the riding stable are a great experience for families with children … and not only ideal for passionate riders. The farms are usually located in particularly scenic regions: for example in the mountains, by the sea or embedded in lush green low mountain landscapes. They are simply the ideal starting point for hikes, bike tours and excursions.
Of course, the horses also play an important role. The animals are either very calm and patient or even specially trained horses that are used to dealing with people (and small children).

Exciting riding courses and sociable riding trips

The type of activities offered can vary depending on the farm. In many cases, individual riding lessons are available for almost all levels and ages. The storage of riding badges is usually included in such offers.
But of course you shouldn’t just learn on family vacations: having fun with horses and ponies is just as important as relaxing activities on horseback. Guided pony rides are often waiting for younger children: This way, the little ones have the opportunity to gain initial experience with the lovable animals. Experienced riders can explore the country and its people on guided and more or less extensive rides. Sometimes the riding stables also offer covered wagon rides through the area, which is both a romantic and a happy experience. A still relatively new trend are GPS guided tours. The route often leads over field and forest paths and there is an infinite amount to see along the way.

A family holiday on the riding stable is also ideal for non-riders

Bathing and swimming in summer, hiking and fishing, trips to nearby towns, amusement parks and museums: boredom comes in holidays with Definitely not up to children!
