For Small Children

Geilo Horse Center offers horses walked and led by employees (only available in the summer during the school holidays) around the riding arena or the field belonging to the farm for small children. A safe and nice experience where the children get to know the horse while an employee walks the horse--parents are, of course, welcome to go beside the horse, as well. If you want to go riding, please contact Geilo Horse Center directly.

Horse as a Means of Transport?

Covered Wagon

For sightseeing, parties or transport - a different way to transport your group. The covered wagon has room for 16 people, with two benches along the wagon sides, where you sit facing each other with a long table in the middle. The cloth over the wagon provides shelter on the road, and there is usually a good atmosphere on the trip with 2 or 4 teams with horses in front. Contact Geilo Horse Center directly for requests.

Wedding Transport

Give the day an extra touch with a horse ride on your wedding day. If the wedding is arranged in winter, the Austrian sleighs are used. Geilo Horse Center has special wedding pelts for the sleigh--a decorative framework for the day that also keeps you warm. If there is a wedding in the summer months, you can choose the Austrian sleigh or an old-fashioned carriage. The sled has room for 9 people, while the carriage seats 4 people. The horses are groomed and decorated, the harnesses freshly prepared and shiny. The driver is dressed in his finest--all to create an unforgettable experience!

Contact Geilo Horse center directly for wedding rides.
