Get to know each other and get in the saddle

Familiar snorting horses, the smell of fresh hay and a glass of sparkling wine or juice - the Centre for Leisure Riding welcomes you as an experienced trail riding company! After getting to know each other, the adventure begins: you get your animal companion for the day. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced rider, there is a horse for you here! The Irish Tinker is a very friendly and reliable horse breed that you will immediately take to your heart. While grooming and saddling up, you can give your Tinker a cuddle behind the ears, and then it's off to the saddle. Leave your everyday life behind and enjoy the 1.5-hour ride through the wonderful Münsterland park landscape, through green forests, past meadows and fields. Can a day begin more beautifully?

Irish picnic in the countryside

If you ride a lot, you also need a little refreshment. After the first ride, a relaxed and cosy meadow picnic awaits you in the middle of the lush greenery and with the horses in the corner of your eye. A lifestyle almost like in Ireland - because for the small and big hunger there is the original Irish picnic of the Cafe's McKiernan in Gescher. Wonderfully delicious and regional products, whether sweet or savoury, with cold cuts or vegetarian - here you can decide individually in advance. The perfect holiday moment.

You can find out how your picnic basket can be filled at the bottom of this page. Please mention your wishes for food and drinks when booking.

Riding to the natural monument

After a delicious picnic, you will be invigorated for the second ride of the day. Depending on your riding experience, you can ride at a steady pace or gallop freely on sandy ground - the Münsterland offers you both. Enjoy the beautiful views from the tinker's back and let the landscape take its effect on you. A real natural monument awaits you on the route: a 350-year-old oak tree, "Moi Höltken". Take a little time and let this unique tree tell you its story. Your day comes to an end with the familiar clatter of hooves and you return to the centre for leisure riding. What an unforgettably beautiful experience. At one with nature, enjoying local produce in the form of an Irish picnic and feeling your horse's movements, letting the wind blow around your nose as you gallop. Unique.
