Learning to ride is fun in Salzburg Country

The riding "Kindergarten" at the children's hotel Felben

  • Small groups (maximum 2 children)
  • Grooming, saddling and bridling
  • Arm and leg position and coordination
  • The correct seating position in the saddle

At the Children’s Hotel Felben in Mittersill even our very small guests have the opportunity to learn how to ride and trust horses in a fun and comforting way. In the Riding Kindergarten the basics or riding and handling horses is learnt while having a great deal of fun.

In small groups of maximum two, children find out how to groom, saddle and prepare horses for riding. In an age-appropriate manner an obstacle course helps the kids to train the right posture, arm and leg coordination and of course how to lead a horse.

Riding for coordination and body awareness

Your children are given the opportunity to build up a trusting relationship to horses on a physical and psychological level. Riding is not about sporting success, it has more to do with coordination, experiencing new movement sensations, feeling comfortable and confident on the back of a horse and the enjoyment of exercising. Children get a better feeling for their own body and learn to judge their own psychological strengths and to develop them.
