Horse Riding

Hi all horse lovers!

I am way out of my depth here so am appealing to the collective wisdom.

My girl friend used to ride horses and loved it. She did it for about 6 years but hasnt ridden a horse in ages. I want to get her a fantastic birthday present involving horse riding. There is a budget. around 300sfr.

I have noticed that what is offered is some structured lessons; either indoors or outdoors. Whilst that would be great for a longterm commitment i was looking at more of an experience. I was thinking perhaps 5 lessons, so she can find her hooves and then perhaps some sort of trail ride.

Does anyone know of a stable that would offer such a thing? In Basel or Zürich would be great.

Re: Horse Riding

The most famous area of Switzerland for horse-riding is the Franches Montagnes in the Upper part of the Jura - so perhaps do a Google on
something like 'horse-riding holidays Franches-Montagnes' and see what come up.

Otherwise, how about Tuscany? But that would blow your budget a bit.
I can thoroughly recommend this place:

Re: Horse Riding

This looks cool:

We plan to do this too.
You must however travel to Geneva for this - I think it is worth though.

Re: Horse Riding

I recently did a day tour at the San Jon stables near Scuol...


The stables were fantastic and set in beautiful countryside. They do a range of different lessons, treks etc.

Re: Horse Riding

If willing to travel a bit, there's Bifing in the Berner Oberland, right next to the Ballenberg musuem, 40-50 francs an hour, pending on what you want and they will often give you 90 minutes for it. You can do jumps, trails etc...
