About the Netherlands

If you’ve ever dreamed of riding past idyllic windmills or fields of colorful tulips, a horseback riding holiday in the Netherlands is the perfect vacation for you. On your trip, you’ll be able to see fantastic sights in wonderful places such as the island of Vlieland, Hoge Veluwe National Park, or the Loonse and Drunense Duinen National Park.

Riding Schools in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is well-known for its history of horse riding and particularly its riding schools. There are 3,000 equestrian centers and riding clubs in the country. These Dutch riding schools stand out in all disciplines, from dressing to driving. It’s no wonder that these schools excel; they date back to 1744.

While you’re in Holland, you’ll be able to see how riding schools impact the strong horse riding culture.

Friesian Horses

The Friesian horse is a breed native to Friesland, which is in the northern part of the Netherlands. While this horse has many qualities of a draft horse, this breed is graceful and nimble for its size. Friesians are most often a solid black color, though some of them are chestnut, and they have thick, long manes and tails and long, silky hair on their lower legs.

They are considered willing, active, and energetic, while also being gentle and docile. These horses tend to have a great, elegant presence. There are two main conformation types, the baroque type, which is more robust, and the sport horse type, which is finer-boned. While you’re in Holland, you’ll be able to see this breed up close.

Horseback Riding in the Netherlands

Holland’s countryside is very low and flat, and much of the country is below sea level, though there are hills in the central and southeastern parts. With 21 national parks and hundreds of nature reserves, you will see plenty of wild areas on your equestrian vacation. These areas include features like lakes, heathland, woods, dunes, and other habitats.

On the islands of Vlieland and Terschelling in the northern part of the country, your group will have the opportunity to ride along the beach. Breathe in the fresh ocean air as you gallop by the sea. There’s nothing quite like horseback riding on the sand.

Vlieland is the second least populated municipality in the Netherlands, which means you’ll likely have the trail all to yourself. While the island is windy, the temperatures don’t reach extremes on either side of the spectrum. It’s a wonderful place to ride.

Like its neighbor, Terschelling is one of the West Frisian Islands. The island has few trees, so islanders are known for using whatever washes up on shore, including pieces from shipwrecks, in whatever way they can. If you plan your holiday in June, you may see the annual Oerol Festival, a celebration in which theater entertainers perform throughout the island.

When you travel to this beautiful country, you’ll be able to see sights like these and more. Holland’s gorgeous countryside and rich history of horseback riding make it a wonderful destination for those who love horses. Come and enjoy nature with these amazing animals.

Horse Tours Club offers worldwide horse riding tours, ensuring quality and safety for its customers. Book your Dutch horseback tour through Horse Tours Club today!
