Horse riding is the most important thing in the camp , and here everyone will find a suitable horse for himself. For experienced riders - active and well-paired ponies and horses for field trips, dressage or jumping, for beginners – lovely and reliable ponies, on which you can learn the basics of riding. Everyone gets a horse attached to him during the stay, on which you can not only engage, but if you wish, graze, go to the river, etc. The program of classes is made taking into account the experience and wishes of children. If the horse does not fit, you can change it.
Communication in the camp takes place in German or English - which, combined with a friendly atmosphere, provides opportunities for language practice.
