    Behavioural tips for everyone at the horse stable:

    • Observe opening hours: Outside these times, access to the horse stable and stables is prohibited.
    • Spectators are welcome in the riding arena, but must behave in an appropriately quiet manner.
    • Horses are flight animals and can be frightened! Out of consideration for the riding students, all visitors should therefore behave calmly and avoid hectic movements. Sitting on the riding arena gangway is prohibited. 
    • The duty of supervision for the children lies with the parents / an accompanying adult.
    • Feeding the horses only in consultation with the horse stable team.
    • Further tips & rules of behaviour on site

    Register for riding or just have a look:

    • sturdy and closed shoes &
    • clothing that can get dirty.

    for your appointment (whether pony leading or riding lesson)

    • sturdy and closed footwear is mandatory for everyone - parents & children!

    Riding lessons in a group

    Riding lessons in a small group (4 - 6 people, in German)
    approx. 1.5 hours | for beginners or advanced riders | 25.00 / person

    - for beginners from 8 years
    The riders have already gained experience in riding lessons at a walk and trot and have also mastered light trotting independently. They feel comfortable and confident on the horse so that they can follow the instructor's explanations - even on unfamiliar horses and in unfamiliar surroundings. When preparing the ponies for riding lessons, they receive the necessary assistance from the team.
    Please note: Unfortunately, there are currently no large horses available for these riding lessons!

    - for advanced riders aged 8 and over
    Riders will have mastered the three basic gaits of walk, trot and canter and will be familiar with the necessary aids. We assume that you know how to prepare the horses. Of course, a contact person from the team will be at the stables to support the riders.
    Please note: Only a limited number of large horses are currently available for these riding lessons!

    ------------------

    Registrations for riding lessons
    can only be accepted a maximum of one week in advance for organisational reasons! The riding student must come in person (for children: and accompanied by an adult) to register on site during opening hours. Südsee-Camp will organise the groups. The riding lessons are held exclusively in German.

    About making appointments at the horse stable
    or: why should we as horse stable guests always plan a little in advance?

    Our offer...

    • ...is not only orientated towards the wishes and riding abilities of our guests, 
    • ...but also keeps the well-being of our four-legged employees in focus. This also means that we ensure that each of our ponies has sufficient rest periods - especially our senior horses in the stables deserve a few extra days off in between.
    • ...is limited in this respect. Unfortunately, we are therefore not always able to fully meet the demand from our many horse-loving interested parties.

    Please keep this in mind if you and your children would like to find out about current opportunities and available dates with us.

    Thank you very much for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you!
