Horseback riding on holidays with us

Family hotel and horse farm Oberschwarzach in Saalbach-Hinterglemm

In summer and winter, our hotel in Saalbach-Hinterglemm in Salzburger Land is the perfect place for a family horseback riding holiday in Austria. The little ones love grooming and riding our ponies! Experienced riders can ride our horses in our riding arena or discover the scenic nature of Saalbach-Hinterglemm on a guided ride. As a guest in our Hotel Oberschwarzach, you are spoiled for choice between our loving and patient mounts.

6 horses, 2 Shetland ponies, 1 Haflinger, 1 Icelandic pony and 2 warmbloods are looking forward to showing you and your family our 25 × 45 m sand court, going to our alpine pasture with you in summer and spending your holiday in Austria with lots of great animals to enrich experiences.

You can find an overview of the entire range of horseback riding at our family hotel HERE.

Riding holidays in the Oberschwarzach

Perfect for families

Children and adults experience happiness on earth on the back of our horses in group and individual riding lessons. Experienced riders enjoy the fantastically beautiful surroundings around the Hotel Oberschwarzach on a one-hour ride accompanied by our riding instructor.

Attention: A ride is only possible with a previous trial lesson on the riding arena next to our hotel!

Riding holidays for the little ones

There is always something to do on the farm next to our hotel! In summer, your children and their carers can be found five days a week in the small animal stables doing activities together. Your children have the opportunity to clean our Shetland ponies several times a week as part of the childcare and to ride them for free. Children who already have riding experience are in good hands with a riding lesson (for a fee).

Riding lessons for children from 6 years

At the beginning of their riding career, beginners learn the basic gaits of the horse on the longe. If you are confident in the walk, trot and canter, you can take part in a group riding lesson or further improve your skills during an individual riding lesson. Then nothing stands in the way of a trip through Saalbach-Hinterglemm in the beautiful province of Salzburg.

Pony rides on winter holidays

Our hotel in Saalbach-Hinterglemm in the Salzburg area with its own riding stables also offers pony rides twice a week in winter for our little Oberschwarzach guests. The well-behaved Shetland ponies are cleaned and saddled together. Afterwards the kids can do a few laps on them on the outdoor riding arena of our hotel.

Equipment for riding lessons in Oberschwarzach

Safety first!

Equipment for riding lessons in Oberschwarzach

Safety first!

As with many other sports, the right equipment is simply a part of equestrian sports:

  • Riding helmet: must fit snugly and must not slip around on the head (you can borrow the helmet from us at the hotel), small children can also wear a bicycle helmet
  • Breeches: close-fitting and elastic, prevent pressure points and chafing and ensure a good fit in the saddle
  • Gloves: so that you always have a firm grip on the reins and prevent injuries to your hands
  • Riding boots or, if possible, sturdy, ankle-high shoes for optimal protection and a secure feeling in the stirrup

With this equipment you will have a lot of fun with our four-legged friends and you will be able to enjoy your holiday with us in the Oberschwarzach on horseback safely and without pressure. You can find helpful tips and more information about the correct handling of our mounts HERE!
