Regular Riding Weeks
Our regular program includes 10 hours of instructions in dressage or jumping, of which 5 are in group sessions and 5 in private sessions.

Your riding hours can include some hacking out if you like, but you should be a confident rider ... not suited for novice riders. If you would like to have additional private instructions, you can switch 2 group lessons for 1 private session. No riding on arrival and departure day. Lessons are around 50 minutes in length while hacks are 1-2 hours.

Hacking Weeks
We offer different dates each year for people that want to join us for some exciting and exhilarating trail riding.
