Winter Horseback Riding

Supplier: Geilo Hestesenter

The ride is led by well-qualified instructors, who safely guide you through the snow-covered ski tracks, forest roads, and winter terrain. Before the trip, you get to take part in the preparations such as bringing them from the pasture, brushing, and saddling up the horse. The horses used for the ride are mainly Icelandic or Dole horses. The horses are safe, but can be eager due to the cold. The ground surface can vary, so the horse’s gait can be uneven. Therefore, it is recommended that you have some experience if you want to participate in winter riding. If you want a horse experience, but are not confident on horseback, sleigh rides are highly recommended!
