Webcam Turnersee

There is nothing more beautiful than galloping across a meadow on horseback, feeling the wind in your face and smelling the scent of the surrounding forests. We love this feeling and want our guests to experience it too. That’s why you can either learn to ride with us at the Ilsenhof on holiday or take riding lessons on a regular basis.


Learn to ride at the ilsenhof

No matter if you are a beginner or an experienced rider, young or old, in our riding stable we have the right offer for all levels.

Riding on the lunge

For beginners who have not yet sat on a horse often or not at all, we recommend a riding lesson on the lunge. This is a long leash on which the horse runs in a circle within reach of the riding instructor. This way she always has control over the horse and the student can get used to the horse’s movements. Simple exercises in the saddle train the balance and help to get used to the gaits of the horse. After only a few units you will be able to trot, gallop and master the right aids to ride a horse.

Lessons on our riding ground

For more experienced riders we offer riding lessons in groups on our riding ground. In this lesson the students learn not only how to clean and saddle the horses properly but also how to ride freely in the department. Our certified riding instructor keeps a watchful eye on all riders the whole time and gives them instructions on what to do. This way they learn how to ride freely and improve their posture and handling of the horse.
