We offer independent riding for those riders who already master the English riding technique, have a safe seat and are familiar with other riding skills. You can choose between our Lipizzaner, Arabian and Haflinger horses, use our outdoor riding place of 20 m by 40 m or explore the superb landscape on trail rides.
