Riding for experienced riders

To join our holidays for experienced riders, you have to be able to control your horse in walk, trot and canter. On both holidays you can choose if you want to groom and saddle your own horse, or if you would like to enjoy a long breakfast and come to a saddled horse.
 

Riding weekend for experienced riders, Friday-Sunday, age limit 12 years.

Friday: Arrival for dinner, we eat together and get to know each other.

Saturday: Day trip with bonfire lunch. A wonderful and long ride over mountains with views over the local mountains, valleys and Rondane National Park. We walk most of the time, but there will be trot and canter several places. The trip goes through varied terrain, and you get to see a range of what our mountains have to offer. At our stop we make a fire and serve an outdoor-lunch above average! Eat sausages from the local award winning butcher and vegetables wrapped in foil. For dessert we serve a fruit surprise and make coffee. The ride home is through calm and easy terrain, well-fitting for our full stomachs.

Sunday: 3 hours ride to "DÝrjuvet" canyon. We ride northeast towards the reindeers area, the terrain is quite different from the day before. After a few hours ride, we arrive the canyon with its 100 metres drop. We ride along the edge of the canyon and enjoy the spectacular view. Leaving after lunch at the hotel.

There may be alterations in the program because of weather conditions. The guide will always choose the best route for that day.
