Horse back riding

Another way of enjoying Estonia's breathtaking beauty is on horseback. You don't need to be an experienced rider to go riding; there are riding camps and elementary training sessions conducted for beginners. Imagine racing towards a coastal sunset, or visiting remote villages with their own unique history

Some of the rural tourism farmsteads have their own horses, but in most of the cases we co-operate with horse breeding farmsteads or horse riding clubs in the surroundings, which offer the guests horseback riding and the assistance of professional trainers.
