FRANCE / ALSACE : Snow Passion Equestrian Holidays

Need a change of scenery ?

We suggest you to come relax in the mountains, in the heart of a protected site, full of history and legends.

Canter in the Alsatian Forest, escape for a weekend and meet up in the evening, with family or friends in our cottage with a warm and friendly atmosphere if your are experienced or novice rider.
Located on the Alsatian side of the Vosges mountains, the area, which is also loaded with stories and legends, has many vestiges: medieval castles, ancient churches, walls dating back to the pagan age... Ranked "Zone natura 2000", you will be delighted with its landscapes.

Day 1 & 2
Meeting at the equestrian center at 9 AM. During the weekend, different winter activities will be offered: horse riding to discover the magic of the snow covered woods and the pleasure to canter in the white powder, but also ski-joering or horse-tubbing (a buoy being pulled by a horse) will be on the program.

Some rides are with Icelandic horses; these small horses accustomed to cold climates are ideal for riding in snow. If you have some experience you can even ride bareback! Other rides are with the horse of your choice from our herd of different breeds.

The schedule of the day is discussed in the morning depending on the weather and can not be defined in advance. Depending on weather conditions, the quantity and quality of snow on that day a practicable itinerary one day may not be possible the next.

The week-end ride ends around 18:00 on day 2 (possibility to spend more than 2 days).

 

The above program is a rough indication and the riding guide is the only person deciding the possible activities for the day. Also note that snow is not guaranteed.

It is possible to organise this trip during the week.

Our riding consultant's report

An enchanting ride on the back of robust and loving icelandic horses.

Riding guest reviews

"In Alsace, everything is generous : a team who shares its cheerfulness from the start, plentiful meals, aperitifs as much as you like, nice and healthy cavalry. Between quick canters in beautiful landscapes and riding bareback on Icelandic horses in the snow there is no time to get bored. Moreover, the team listens to our wishes and proposes us different horses and itineraries. A good way to disconnect from your daily life and to take the time to enjoy yourself." - Emilie F. (Feb. 2014)
