Where to go Horse Riding near Zurich?

I'm looking for a place to either rent a horse or get horse riding lessons a few times per week near Zurich.

Would also consider a possible horse share.

Any recommendations?

Only two if you drive, and don't hit traffic.

Actually, several, including one run by one of my motorcycling friends about 1km away!

But I'm never going to get on one of those damned things again (though I can understand why women like them so much)!

So, I'll stick to grilling them.

BTW, a friend once broadsided one with a clients motorcycle nearby, totaled the bike and the horse. The horse rider's insurance had to pay and was fined as well for failure to control her vehicle!

I wouldn't mind driving 3 hours if I knew I could spend the day or weekend doing horse riding, unfortunately horse riding lessons are usually an hour long and thats where it differs from my views regarding skiing.

Re: Where to go Horse Riding near Zurich?

You see that raises more questions:
- Do you have a car?
- Do you speak/understand enough German to take lessons near* Zurich?



*Where near is <3 hours?

I will have a car as of next week and happy to drive around 45 minutes one way. I live right in the centre of the old town.

Re: Where to go Horse Riding near Zurich?

No german at all (yet!) so looking for private lessons or to share with an english speaker, or for a place where i can ride on my own without instruction.

Moikka Maija!

There are plenty of horse farms on the country side, in either direction from Zurich - do you have any criteria?

Just to find a good quality instructor/horse. I used to compete internationally so not looking for a place just to trot around but would like to be able to train properly!

https://www.pferdekurse.ch/zuerich.html has plenty of suggestions, depending on what exactly you're into?

Re: Where to go Horse Riding near Zurich?

Will have a look thank you!

Hoping to ride a few times per week with a mix of dressage and show jumping on a horse that is trained to a relatively high level.

Re: Where to go Horse Riding near Zurich?

Moikka moikka!

Did you find any riding stable? I am also looking new riding place, I visit once here http://www.pferdesportstall-sigg.ch/ and they also had english speaking teacher.. But somehow I did not really like the teacher so I went only once there. Maybe should try once more..

At the moment I am going other stable, what is not so near to Zürich, but I can only have dressage lessons there..

So if you find some stable, where you can have do jumping, let me know =)

- in Dietikon ZH http://fondli.ch
- in Albisrieden city ZH Stall Buchlern http://www.stall-buchlern.ch/www.sta...n.ch/Home.html, Sandra Meier dressage teacher

Re: Where to go Horse Riding near Zurich?

These guys are 15 min by train from Zurich, and have a good reputation.
http://www.rv-wuerenlos.ch/verein/

This place also trains at a high level..
They also do the Brevet course for kids, if that means anything to you?

Did you try Reitschule-Waldhof? It's just by the Zurich airport, beautiful stables and friendly staff I've taken lessons there.
