We spoil our guest with great food and great horses. Since we only can accomodate a few guests at the time, we can make the most of their experience during the stay.
We offer riding tours and riding trips. Most guest chose to stay at the farm for some days and decide each day depending on weather and wind wheather to take a few short rides and come back to the farm in between for meals and rest, or wheather to pack some food and go for a longer riding tour. We can also arrange longer riding trips where we bring a herd of loose horses with us.
