Small Group Half Day Horse Riding Tour from Amsterdam

Come and enjoy Holland’s beautiful nature from horseback!

Our stables are all less than an hour’s drive from Amsterdam. This amazing trail ride takes you through the forest of the Veluwe or the beautiful dunes in North Holland. Our horses love these outings as much as we do! With rides available for every level, anyone can experience this magical activity!


We will pick you up in Amsterdam and will drive you to the stables. After meeting the horses and your guide, we will tack up together and we will fit you with a helmet and half chaps. In a small group we will ride through the dunes on the Dutch coast or the beautiful forests of the Veluwe. For very experienced riders we offer to include a nice gallop on the beach! The ride typically lasts 1,5 – 2,5 hours, depending on the weather and riding level of the people in your group. Coffee, tea and a snack after your ride are included with your booking. The time of the ride depends on the availability of the stable!

We offer 50% discounts for self drive tours! (so excluding transport from Amsterdam)

From € 155,-

Three different levels

We ask you to contact us if you want to make a booking: or +31621816480 (call / whatsapp), to check availability. Please describe your experience level as accurately as possible. 

For beginners we offer a 1 – 1,5 hours long hack through the dunes or forest at a walk. No previous experience needed! The guide is experienced, and the horses are calm, providing a relaxing atmosphere to try this activity!

Our second ride is for intermediate riders. All participants must be able to post at the trot and be comfortable cantering. This (2 hour) ride will take you in walk, trot and canter.  Although the ride is not difficult at all, this is not a hack for beginner riders.

Our last ride is for very experienced riders only, as we will add a full gallop! So, are you an accomplished equestrian, looking for a nice long and exciting ride through the dunes or forest? Then this is your ride!

A mixed group?

If you have different levels in your party, you will ride together in the least advanced group. The difficulty of each ride will be adjusted to the least experienced rider in the group. All intermediate and experienced riders will be asked to demonstrate their skills in the arena prior to the ride.
