Experience the Münsterland from horseback

Is your happiness on this earth on the back of a horse? Then you will love the Münsterland. Ride over hill and dale on reliable trail horses. Resting where it's beautiful. And at night? Recharge your batteries in a cosy country hotel - wonderful!

Day 1

Get to know each other and then: into the saddle!

Let's go: A few days in the saddle await you. After arriving in Legden in the western Münsterland, a cosy get-to-know-you picnic awaits you at the Tenne. The Centre for Leisure Riding is known as an experienced trail riding centre. And off you go to meet the horses. You spend your first few hours in the saddle. Pure happiness!

Welcome to the Country Inn

Relaxation awaits you after your first ride at Hotel Hermannshöhe: your accommodation, the warmly run country inn, is a former customs station and today a modern hotel with fresh Münsterland cuisine. Legden in the heart of Münsterland stands for Westphalian cosiness and is also called the "dahlia village" - the green park landscape here is enriched by a colourful splendour of blossoms until autumn.

Day 2

Forest ride and saddle bag picnic

Your second day starts directly with a ride in the deep forests of the Münsterland: from quiet paces to wild gallops! With an area of 420 hectares, the forest area Bröke and the adjoining Liesner Wald are among the largest and most beautiful forest areas in the Westmünsterland - plenty of room for hoof patter! One of the many stories about this region revolves around a 350-year-old oak trunk weighing several tons, the "Moi Höltken", which now rests there as a natural monument. The oak, whose history goes back to the 30 Years' War, fell victim to the violent spring storms of 1990, but still attracts the attention of hikers today. And riders, of course!
On the way you fortify yourself with a saddle bag picnic. Today the motto is: rest wherever we please! As soon as a nice spot in the countryside is found, the horses are tied up and the saddle bags full of Munsterland delicacies are plundered. A sensual experience!

Wellness and relaxation

What a day! You can still feel the rhythm of riding in your body. In the evening you relax yourself and your tired muscles in the hotel pool with sauna, sanarium and Physio-Therm infrared heat: a gentle wellness treatment with lava sand technology. So good!

Day 3

Horseback riding and lasso throwing

Let's go: You can hardly wait for the third day in the saddle. Collect your own personal MünsterLand moments from the back of the horse and enjoy the Münsterland park landscape on horseback. You will never forget these moments. Oh yes: riding makes you hungry! But there's plenty of refreshment in the form of a "robber's picnic". What is it? You'll love it! And you'll need the energy. Because if you want, you can try your hand at "lasso throwing" after the ride. What fun!

The Westphalian Horse Museum

Anyone who loves riding and horses should have been here at least once: The Westphalian Horse Museum with its adjacent horse arena presents numerous horse-related topics on 1,000 square metres of exhibition space on the western edge of the city of Münster. Well worth seeing and a successful conclusion to the beautiful days all about the love of nature and riding pleasure.

Good-natured Tinker Good-natured Tinker
The horses

When talking about the Tinker, the first thing that comes to mind is the striking appearance - piebald in all variations, lush kötenbehang, full long hair and the typical little goat's beard on the lower lip. The Irish breed has become a fashionable horse in Europe since the 1990s and still enjoys great popularity in the course of leisure riding.

Originally, Tinkers were draught and work horses of the travelling Travellers, an Irish population group without a permanent residence, who were derogatorily called Tinkers (tinkers, gypsies).
These horses are quite diverse, not only in appearance, as characteristics of warmbloods as well as ponies and cold-bloods can be recognised. From the heavy draught horse with cold blood characteristics to the medium-heavy types and the Tinker with pony influence, different characteristics are possible. All these characteristics make them a perfect companion for a ride - fearless, calm and for almost every size of rider you can also find the right size of horse.
