Horse Riding Tour

Come and enjoy Holland’s beautiful nature from horseback!

Our stable is hidden in the coastal dunes, yet less than an hour’s drive from Amsterdam. Our amazing trail ride takes you through the forest and dunes to the beautiful Dutch beach. Our horses love these outings as much as we do! With rides available for every level, anyone can experience this magical activity!

Itinerary

We will pick you up in Amsterdam at 8.45 AM 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. For 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. We aim to be back in Amsterdam around 2 pm.

Good to know before you book

We ride year-round and this tour can be booked up to 48 hours in advance. Kids should be at least 8 years old and all riders should be under 100 kg / 220 lbs. Make sure you bring suitable breeches/riding pants and closed shoes (preferably with a heel). Jeans will often give a nasty rub! We will provide a safety helmet and half chaps. Due to the nature of this activity we do require that you sign a release prior to the ride.

Included in this tour:

  • Transfers from Amsterdam to the stables
  • A trail ride in the coastal forest/dunes
  • Coffee/tea and a snack
  • Use of safety helmet and half chaps
  • Optional boxed lunch

From € 155,-

Three different levels

For beginners we offer a 1 – 1,5 hours long hack through the dunes 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 through the beautiful coastal dunes in Holland!  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 on the beach! So, are you an accomplished equestrian, looking for a nice long ride through the dunes topped off with a thrilling gallop on the beach? Then this is your ride!

A mixed group?

If you have different levels in your party you may go out in two or three groups, or you can of course choose to stay 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.
