Looking for somebody to "share" a horse with

Hi all

I would like to find somebody who preferably owns a horse and wants to share the costs of the stable. I live in Zurich, pretty close to the city center, but can commute in/out within 30 mins distance. I would probably be in the stable
about 3 times a week.

I have been riding for 4 years now and am missing it soooo much here ...

Please send me a message if you would like to meet

Re: Looking for somebody to "share" a horse with

I've probably posted this before - but try this website (I know I've posted this website for many things before, I feel like an annoying broken record)

http://www.tier-inserate.ch/
and go Pferde & Ponys and then Reitbeteiligungen

Its all in German, but just use an online translator if you need it. There are usually quite a few adds on there..

Good luck

Try these sites as well, particulary Reitkalender. It always has lots of ads with people looking for someone to share a horse, you just have to find one close to you.
I used it to find the horse I am riding.
Good luck.

Sorry link didn't go right to the spot I wanted. Just look under "reitbeteiligung" in the contents.

Re: Looking for somebody to "share" a horse with

Hey Fellas,

Though my interest is not "genau" related to this forum, I think i might get some answers. I donot have ANY exposure to horses .. at all.

However i like horses and the idea of riding/galloping in the woods. I just want to know what my chances are (I am 25 years old) and how much would it cost me. Buying is surely not an option. Would it be a good idea to share a horse like stated in this forum and start riding (with some guidance initially ofcourse?) .. Or would it be possible to offer a stable hand for a few months and learn basics like grooming/ walking a horse before start to riding. How long would it take to be comfortable with a horse. Would someone offer me such a stable-hand position having said that i have no exposure to horses at all and teach me how to be with horses.

you can learn to ride at any age. I used to do cross with the horses which is basically what you want to do. It does take a while of normal riding before going into that. you need to be good with horses, trust the horse, and be willing to have the adrenaline rush you get from it.


Im certain you could get a job like that somewhere (it wont pay that much but....)

Just go to a stable somewhere and ask around or post a note.

Re: Looking for somebody to "share" a horse with

hi Stealth

I suggest you check teh links mentioned above (especially reitkalender.ch) there are quite often offers there for a traineeship at stables all over CH (I recall seeing, Berne, Fribourg, Thurgau just from the top of my head).
I highly doubt any horse owner will just let you take their horse to learn riding as normally a Reitbeteiligung is sought for the support of the owner (so that s/he doesnt need to go to the stable that day).

Hi Stealth,

Visit this thread:

http://www.englishforum.ch/sports-fi...binningen.html

I suggest to take some Privat Longeunterricht for some times (30 minutes) and when you are fit for an hour's group lesson you join a group.
As far as I remember it was appr. 62 CHF per 30 minutes.
In a group you pay 31 CHF for an hour.
These prices are valid with an ABO.

When I restarted riding I needed 3 half an hour private lessons and after that I could join the group.
