Adventures and Fun with and without a Horse

During the vacation season we organize our “Holiday with a Horse” camps. Due to the fun program and variety of equestrian and non-equestrian activities, they are a hit with riders and non-riders alike.

We strive to offer children and teenagers a unique experience. As well as having fun, they will have an opportunity to understand the natural world and learn to exercise responsible leadership, independence and cooperation;
