Good, well-groomed horses, nice route. Upon recommendation, we wanted to book the two-hour tour directly. Unfortunately, these are not yet available from GetyourGuide. The subsequent upgrade from 1 to 2 hours was possible, but it took a while. The 2-hour ride at sunset is very recommendable, gladly again and again.

Riding was awesome, on the beach and through the dunes. My brown stallion (Latis) was well cared for and well brought up. I was allowed to trot and gallop and my trainer took good care of me. For 20 euros 1 hour riding with a private trainer - absolutely great. Next time I would definitely book 2 hours - and don't forget to tip in the end!

We booked a one-hour ride, if you want more beach time, you should better book two hours directly, since the way to the beach definitely takes 20 minutes, but leads through the dunes. In advance, the time will be clarified by email and asked about the riding skills to find the right horse. There is equipment (cap including hygiene hood). The facility and the horses are very well maintained, care is taken to ensure that they have enough rest, overall everything made a very good impression on me!
