The choice of level is not final. We talk to all participants before the horses are distributed.
This is just to have an overall picture of levels.

Children from the age of 7 and up can participate. However, we draw attention to the fact that most suitable ridingtours for children are the 1½ hours ridingtour, the other tours can be too long for children.

When booking, please state the age and riding experience of the participants so that we can match horses and riders as optimally as possible.

For us, it is a matter of safety and a good experience for all participants.
