Recommended Horse riding schools for kids around Bern?

I am looking for any recommendations for riding schools in the Bern region, as the place we use is closing down soon. The girls were riding lovely icelandic ponies and we are looking for a similar laid back, relaxed approach..as they are still young and not interested in dressage or jumping yet.We have small group of 8 year olds who have limited german, so would be happy for any offers of group lessons from pony owners. I have searched les-maneges.ch with no success..thanks for any suggestions.

Not sure in the Bern area, but if you can make it as far as Dudingen (between Bern and Fribourg) my 9 year old daughter goes to the Haflinger Stall here. Very relaxed. If you want more details let me know.

So, the teachers name is Gertrud Zollet, known as Trudi, handy number is 079 459 2120. The stable is called Haflinger-Handels AG, Staad 2C, in Dudingen. Hope it's what you are looking for. They don't do jumping or dressage, just basic riding lessons and also vaulting, so the horses are really calm and steady. Might see you there, my daughter goes Tuesday afternoon, and another couple of English/German speaking girls go Wednesday afternoon. I'm pretty sure Trudi does not speak English, I guess that's not really a problem. Good luck!
