Enjoy Sweden's Beautiful Countryside On Horseback

Travel & Ride - stay in high-class inn!

Along winding paths and small roads, through forests and past shimmering lakes on our safe and balanced horses - the Viking horses that in the 800s were shipped over to Iceland and now have returned to their home in Sweden!

Always in small groups and always with a guide. Long lovely rides, through wonderful scenery, on cooperating Icelandic horses. You get a thorough review of how we handle and ride our horses, and the chance to get acquainted, and get to know all the horse's gaits before we ride out.

We train our horses with a variant of Horsemanship we've learned from John Moore and many hours of personal experience.

After lunch it's time to get the horses and review what we have learned from this morning. When we ride into the forest we have a simple security rule. We do not trot until everyone has full control of their horse while walking, we do not canter until everyone has full control of the trot. And do not worry, you will have time to both trot and canter in your days with us, we just want it to be and feel safe for everyone, so everyone can enjoy the wonderful landscape we ride through.
