During this period, riding off the beach or on the grounds of the riding school is of course allowed all day.

The Riding School “Manege Noot” organizes various summer beach rides under supervision and in groups. A precondition is that you are at least 12 years and have plenty of riding experience. This is because horses and ponies may react different on the beach than in an arena. The beach is very large, and if one horse runs off, you can assume that the rest will follow, besides you do not want to get injured during you holiday.

An instructor will, during a mandatory lesson, approves if your skills are sufficient to participate in the beach ride. This test run can take place in a group or private lessons. If your skills are sufficient, you may participate.
