Horse Riding in Germany
Germany is a land of many contrasts; compare the industrialized North to the traditional mountain regions of the South. Next to the Mosel and Rhine River vineyard valleys, the Black Forest is one of Germany's best known areas abroad. It has become of symbol of romance and beautiful natural environment in this highly sophisticated country. Germany has a long horseback riding tradition, producing many world champions in jumping and dressage events.
Hidden Trails offer a range of Germany horse riding holidays – from Rhine castle tours, to Black Forest Equestrian Centers. There are even options to explore the vast country estates of the Westerwald on German Warmbloods.
Warm summer evenings will find you sitting on a veranda with a stein of good beer or a delicate glass of lovely wine, talking over the horseback riding adventures of the day and reminiscing about the tastiness of the evening meal, listening to the voices of the nearby forest, slowly inhaling the aroma of wildflowers, until finally sleep gets the better of you. It's time to turn in, to sink deeply into clouds of down bedding, to take a last whiff of the sun-dried, fresh linen, to dream of tomorrow's equestrian adventure.
