For the horse riding events we limit the number of participants to 7 people. Every participant has to take care of his/her own horse: cleaning the horse and checking the riding equipment. If you lack experience we will assist you.
Out of respect for the horses, we cannot have people heavier than 80 kg. It is very important for the group to be honest about your riding experience because the less experienced riders will slow the pace down for the advanced.

People with little or no experience can have some lessons or they can have a guided walk for max 1 hour,walking on the rein.

!Important! The reins and bridle of horses are handled with care on departure and arrival of a ride, always keep them under control and not let them hang on the ground to prevent breakage. Breaking of either is reimbursed by the customer at market price!
