Horse-riding holidays for families and schools

Horse-riding holidays for families and schools

Barth riding school, located on the Baltic coast, makes the dream of a riding holiday a reality. The ample facilities, the horse stables and the-horse riding area are right beside Barth Youth Hostel. They offer children and school students, as well as families and adults, the opportunity to learn how to ride and to take a closer look at the daily activities around the stables, allowing them to learn more about these noble animals. Taking a look behind the scenes of a riding facility is also part of the holiday activities.

At Barth riding school, you will find horses and ponies for every kind of riding discipline. Our highly experienced riding instructors know exactly how to make riders have a good time on the back of their horses. They help beginners gain confidence and give experienced riders valuable advice about where to go for a ride in the surroundings. Our state-of-the-art riding facilities enable us to offer horse-riding courses, no matter what the weather is like outside. The riding trails in the vicinity are in good condition and well signposted.

Our horse-riding programmes include:

  • Horse-riding lessons in groups supervised by an instructor
  • Pony-riding courses for children (up to 1.20m in height)
  • Guided riding tours in the surroundings through the magnificent landscapes along the Baltic coast

They snort a friendly "hello" at us. Horses play a central role in our Youth Hostel in Donnerberg. They love it here: not only the huge size of our facilities but also making new friends among our guests. Horses are very friendly and sociable creatures, just like we are.
