Horse riding, Pony Treks

Riding around the mountains and along river trails is a fantastic experience for all abilities from complete beginners to the keen riders among you. Kids will enjoy pony treks and there’s an equestrian centre in each of our alpine resorts


Each of our resorts, offer a variety of horse rides and options from guided rides to more casual hacks. All rides come with basic instruction (for adults and kids), if you’d like to learn some more, or if it is required. Our equestrian centres will also offer a longer half day and full day scenic tours for ages 13+ which take in the mountains and offer a truly special experience.
