Riding trips, riding lessons and rounds for children
Venabustallen arranges riding trips for different levels, riding lessons for beginners and small rounds for children. Read further for more info about each of the trips. If you would like to go on a riding holiday with included hotel stay, you should read more about our riding holidays and -weekends.
To participate on our day trips, you have to be able
to control your horse in walk, trot and canter. Where we ride will
depend on the weather conditions. On sunny days we often ride to "DÝrjuvet"
canyon and the waterfall. You can expect a spectacular view to the
bottom of the 100 metres drop. We ride in the wild reindeers area,
and if we are lucky, we might find tracks from the reindeers! We
have day trips that go to some of the local summer farms as well. On
these trips we ride over mountain tops and through quiet birch
forests. All the trips are mostly in walk, but there will be
serveral places where we can trot and canter.
3- and 4-hours rides
To participate on these trips, you have to be able to
control your horse in walk, trot and canter. We ride in varied
terrain, and get several opportunities for trot and canter. We have
many different routes to choose from, and the guides will picj the
best routes for that day. We can ride on mountain tops, to the
canyon and waterfall, through calm forests or in the wild reindeers
area. Age limit 12 years, must be able to canter..
We arrange 2 hours trips for two different levels: level trot and level canter. To participate on the level trot trips, you have to be able to control your horse in trot. For the trips at level canter, you have to be able to control your horse in canter. There will be mostly walking on alle trips, but we will ride trot/canter where the terrain allows us to. On two hours you get to see quite a bit of the mountains. We can ride on a mountain top, in the quiet birch forests or on a lovely gravel road.
Age limit 8 years,
must be able to trot or canter.
1 hour trips
hour trips are recommended for both children and unexperienced
adults. We ride in varied terrain on both small paths and gravel
roads. These trips give a little taste of riding in the mountains,
and is a nice family activity.
Riding lessons at the arena
Riding lessons are recommended before you join a
longer riding trip if you do not have much riding experience. The
main focus during these lessons are that the riders should
experience basic riding skills. We will focus on skills needed to
join riding trips in the mountains.
Riding lesson followed by 1 hour ride
Riding lesson followed by 1 hour ride is a popular
alternative for inexperienced riders. You get a little introduction
and practise at the arena before you go out on a ride in the
mountains. The riding trips are more fun when you have basic control
over your horse.
Riding for children
Also the youngest can ride at Venabu. We arrange
small rounds for children every day. These trips are 15 or 30
minutes long, and each child gets a horse and a guide. We walk on a
narrow path through the "Fairytale forest", a quiet birch forest, so
also the youngest gets a nature experience.
