We only accept riders who can easily handle horses in all gaits. The horses are kind, but if you are a beginner, our rides are not suitable. If it turns out anyone booked but are not able to handle the horse in a basic and safe way, we will not ride the tour due to safety. We will however charge full price, as we could not accept other bookings for that day. We only have one tour a day.
Clarification regarding riding skills as we have received many inquiries / bookings from riders with lower / no riding skills: We have limitations for riding with us based on riding skills due to the safety of our visitors and horses. The horses are not difficult to ride or mean in any way, but they have their own wills and their own engine, which you need to be able to handle. If you have only ridden on tour riding a few times before, our horses are not suitable as they require a completely different level of knowledge. The same thing if you have ridden your first semester at a riding school, then they are not completely suitable horses either.
If, on the other hand, you have ridden a lot in the past and are picking up your riding after a longer break, it is no problem to ride our horses. A good yardstick is if you can saddle and bridle a horse yourself and can ride in trot and gallop without problems.
If you are unsure, call or email and ask before you book.
We have different maximum weights for our horses. Since the saddles we have are 17-17.5 inches, that also limits the size of the rider. The weight limits are set for the well-being of the horses.
We have 15 as the age limit. We only have big horses and quite lively horses and they are not suitable for children.
Health care allowance
If you want to have a receipt for health care allowance, each person needs to make a separate booking in their name to get a separate receipt to give to their employer. We cannot arrange separate receipts afterwards as the receipt is automatically generated directly when the booking is made. On the booking confirmation is the name of the person booking and if we make new receipts, there will be an error in our systems.
Accommodation, Check-in and Check-outCheck-in takes place from 5 pm and check-out takes place at 3 pm. Earlier check-in and later check-out may be possible by arrangement provided that no one else has booked the apartment before or after you.
Toilet paper, detergent and hand soap are available in the apartment. Eggs from the farm's free-range hens are included, if in season. Except from that it is self-catering. We want people to leave tables and benches wiped clean, sort and throw their waste and wash dishes. You can buy cleaning that means you still clean the kitchen and throw your wast but we will vacuum and wetdry when you check out.
Before and after riding
Booked time = your arrival time, if you are much to early we might not be at home. Expect it to take about 30-40 minutes after the booked time before the tour starts with the horses. We meet in the stable at your booked time, go through where we are going to ride, and which horse you will ride. Everyone brushes and prepares the horse to ride. After the ride, it takes about 30 minutes to sponge any sweat and brush the horses after the ride.
Payment is made via card when booking via the website. If you have not booked via website because you have, for example, booked tailored visit, you will recive a link for payment.
As we are a small business that only has one tour per day, cancellations at short notice hit our business pretty hard.
We do not make cancellations or refunds of booked tours. You can instead choose to buy a rebooking guarantee when you book, which means that you can rebook it to another date within 48 hours before the tour. Exceptions are made in the event of thunderstorms or other circumstances that can make the ride dangerous. Giftcards are not refundable.
If there is a risk of strong winds, heavy downpours, storms and thunderstorms, we can make the decision to postpone/cancel/reschedule the tour due to safety reasons. If we cancell the tour because of dangerous weather, you choose between getting a full refund or a gift card with it. We always try to postpone the departure until the storm has passed. We are the ones who decide if the weather is so bad that the tour cannot be carried out safely.
Our horses are insured with Agria and everyone who rides or stays around the horses is covered by their accident insurance. We also recommend that you have your own accident insurance.
We have kind, stable and safe horses, but all riding is at your own risk. There are large animals and accidents can happen.
Bring your own riding equipment. Bring riding clothes adapted to the weather (if there is a risk of rain, you should have rainwear with you). Helmet is mandatory for everyone who rides with us. We have some helmets on loan if someone forgot, but we recommend that you bring your own. Everyone under 18 who rides with us must bring and wear a safety vest. Your own vest needs to be brought as we do not have any for lending. Long pants and shoes suited for riding is mandatory, riding shoes need to have a small heal (1+2cm.)
Bring your own pet
It is not allowed to bring your own pet to our farm.
