Family hotel with riding facilities in Saalbach-Hinterglemm
Riding on holiday in the province of Salzburg: even the youngest guests love to nurture and ride our ponies! Advanced riders and adults ride our big horses on the sand court or in the open field. Those looking to be comfortable enjoy the scenery passing by during a drive in the horse-drawn carriage.
Our family hotel with its own riding stable offers even in winter-time the opportunity to ride our ponies! On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the brave Shetland ponies are cleaned and saddled, then everyone is allowed to do a few rounds on the outdoor riding area. However, we do not operate a riding school: first and foremost, you’re supposed to have fun with our four-legged friends and enjoy your riding holiday securely and without pressure on horseback.
Riding holiday in the province of Salzburg
During the winter-time, your children will have the opportunity to brush and ride our Shetland ponies twice a week as a part of our childcare. Those who want to can try riding for the first time on the lunge (for a fee). Children with riding experience are in good hands at a riding lesson (for a fee).
rides and riding lessons
Advanced children and adults experience the greatest joy on earth on the backs of our ponies and big horses during group and individual riding lessons. Experienced riders enjoy the gorgeously beautiful surroundings of Hotel Oberschwarzach during a one-hour ride accompanied by one of our riding instructors.
riding fun twice a day
In summer-time your children and their carers can be found at the riding stables five days a week with joint activities such as cleaning the pony harness and much more. There’s always something to do in the stable! There is of course also riding at 9 am and 4 pm.
for children from the age of 6
At the start of their riding career, your children learn the fundamental horse gaits on the lunge (a long rope on which the riding instructor lets the horse run in circles). Once they feel secure in walking, trotting and cantering, kids can take part in group riding lessons or hone their skills during individual lessons.
Our horses are well-behaved and balanced. That doesn’t change the facts that horses are, by nature, flight animals that can react spontaneously to impulses from its surroundings. Therefore, riding still has a dangerous tendency to it:
please note that riding and handling horses at our farm happens at your own risk!
