The greatest happiness on earth is sitting in the saddle of a horse - this old saying holds particularly true in Emsland in Niedersachsen: with 1,100 kilometres of signposted bridleways, riders have virtually unlimited choice here. From guided treks to a holiday pony at a riding centre, Emsland is a great destination for equestrian holidays.
Many riding centres offer holiday accommodation, often as a B&B with the family, and most stables have space for guests’ horses. Adventure-loving holidaymakers can sleep in a Native American-style tipi next to the paddock. The Emsland Riding Map helps visitors find their way around Emsland and plan great days out.
Information about riding holidays in Emsland is available from the Emsland Tourist Office; the website includes a comprehensive database with addresses for riding centres, accommodation, coach rides, vets, equestrian supplies and much more.
