Riding near Basel

We're in the process of relocating from Devon, UK to Basel, with two teenage boys, one of whom (age 14) is very keen on riding.

He's very experienced, can ride pretty much anything up to 16/16.2, over more or less any terrain; more interested in cross-country (1 or 3 day event-style, and especially/ideally in the long-distance, fast and rugged end of the spectrum) and some show-jumping, rather than dressage.

(I'm similar, but less competent, old and knackered).

Does anyone know of a stable/horse owner in the general Basel region where we might find this kind of riding? The boy will be delighted to do stablework in return for access to equines! (He has various UK Pony Club certificates in stable management, etc.; I don't).

Many thanks for any and all suggestions,

Tom

Re: Riding near Basel

Plenty of riding stables in France only a couple of miles away which may be cheaper too! I even know some Swiss who stable their own horses in France for the same reason.

If he does not want to go to classes but want free horseriding for work, there are ads for this from private parties.
You may want to visit the stalls that we described in other topics, sometimes there are ads for "experienced rider wanted".

I take my son in Lorrach, next to Basle in Germany. Very good prices. They give lessons and you can rent the horse. I pay 15 EUR per hour for a pony for my son who is 5. It is among the biggest stable in the area with over 30 horses and lots of facilities.

Re: Riding near Basel

I'm also looking for a pony club for a child, in or around Basel. What I really need are first-hand recommendations (or warnings), as I've made a rather bad experience with a stable.

Is there a UK style pony club, where the children are taught things like how to fall if you fall and the like?
