At our farm, we offer riding courses once a week during autumn and spring, weekend classes, riding camps, and single riding lessons. Our riding school is authorized by the Swedish Icelandic Horse Association. We who teach are Kerstin (riding teacher 1) and Jenny sometimes. Kerstin can also travel to you who have your own horse to hold lessons. The riding lessons in Puoltsa are in an outdoor arena and we have about 15 horses in the riding school. We also have accommodation at the farm. You can borrow riding helmets by us. Notification by telephone or e-mail.
We have riding classes autumn (Oct-Dec) and spring (March-May) where you ride once a week (weekdays), 10 times in the autumn and 10 times in the spring. There are separate children and adult groups with 4-5 students in each riding group. You have to be 10 years old to start riding with us. Max weight 90 kg because the Icelandic horse is not so big. The groups are divided depending on riding skills and we try to find a day which suits everyone. In all, it usually takes about 1.5 hours (the time before and after the 45-minute lesson included). Pupils to the riding school are taken in turn after notification, those who have been in the riding school the term before have priority. It’s okay to sign up for spring riding school already now.
We start the spring riding classes in week 13 and will continue for 10 weeks. Most of the times we have lesson riding in the outdoor arena, sometimes we ride in the forest, ride on the oval track and one of the times we have theory / practice.
Price: 1900 kr (child / young) / 2200 kr (adult) 10 times
You can also book single riding classes (45 min) held in the riding area (not July-September).
Price: SEK275 / pers (2-4 students), SEK400 / pers (1 student)
Kerstin (riding instructor 1) can also come home to you who have your own horse to hold a weekend course. Collect friends (max 10 pers) and share the cost. Two riding classes (2 students in each group) and one theory the first day, the second day a longer riding lesson with two students in each or a shorter individual lesson is usually a good idea.
Price: SEK2500 kr / day + travel, food, lodging
If you want to have a weekend course in the mountain area a weekend (Sat-Sun) you can do it, you can bring your own horse or ride one of ours. You can also spend a whole weekend where horse riding, food, and lodging are included or just lodging and cook your own food. The level of riding is adjusted to the skills of the riders. You ride four lessons (one of the lessons can be exchanged for a riding tour if the group wishes), even a theory lesson. The minimum number is 2 participants.
Weekend course (lunch included) SEK1800
Weekend course (incl. full board) SEK2700
Weekend course (with own horse, incl lunch) SEK1300
