A good opportunity to rediscover or rediscover your passion is a riding vacation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Here, many Reiterhöfe
have adapted to overnight guests and offer stays for adults with their own horse or for beginners with a lesson horse.
The adult guests can choose to participate in the farm's program, riding lessons, instructional courses or trail rides. Special programs are also offered, such as learning to lunge or seat training.
Riding lessons for beginners and those returning to the sport
Whether you are a beginner rider, returning to riding or an advanced rider - some horse farms specialize in riding lessons for adults.
For those learning to ride for the first time, understanding the horse is paramount: How do horses behave? How do they react to humans? What is the right way to behave? How do you get one of these herd animals out of the pasture to clean its hooves, groom its coat and put on the saddle? All this is taught by well-trained riding instructors in theory and practice.
Similar to the Reitstunden für Kinder , adults start with lunge lessons and ground work to learn the basics of riding. During lunge training, students calmly adjust to the horse's movements and find their balance in the saddle. Only then do they get to take the reins in the indoor arena, in the arena and later in the open countryside.
Riding courses over several days are also possible, covering the whole range of activities: Lessons in the riding hall or in the riding arena, rides in the countryside, Spring- und Dressurlehrgänge or western riding. In Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, adult late starters learn the basics of equestrian sports in small groups and among their peers.
The riding instructors adjust to the respective skills of the students and select the appropriate training horse.
Superior riding vacation for adults
Riding in first-class surroundings, training with expert instructors or experiencing exclusive horse experiences individually.
It seems like something from another time when you drive along a Mecklenburg cobblestone road past horse paddocks - where linden trees line the avenue, the sun flashes through the leaves to greet you, and the path leads through a curved gate directly to a beautiful old manor house. It takes little imagination to picture what it must have looked like when sophisticated horse-drawn carriages pulled up here. These places are extraordinary because they are unique and the special flair invites you to linger.
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, which has always possessed peace and serenity, ensures that guests and locals alike can really let go and soak it all up. In particular, the numerous historic estates and manor houses invite you to do so, transporting you once again to another time.
Here, guests can learn to ride from professionals or enjoy deluxe wellness for themselves and their own four-legged friends during their vacation. Throughout the year, (horse) experiences in a class of their own take place with special highlights such as the Usedom Cross Country, the MidsummerRemise or the Schwerin Castle Festival. There are also the traditional - of course bloodless - drag hunts. Some even allow guests to participate themselves as a special vacation experience.
No matter whether guests learn their first contact with horses in the horse stables of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, start riding, want to develop further, go for a ride or work with the horse from the ground - they will be richly rewarded in any case.
