Horses and ponies

Petting ponies, grooming them or taking a pony riding lesson: at Landal Het Land van Bartje Pony Ranch you can do it all. Learn the ins and outs of pony riding during an exciting covered wagon trip or a ride in the woods. Or go for the real Cowboy Experience and learn how to ride without a saddle.

Pet, stroke and get to know ponies

During Time for Swieber, the little ones get to know the ponies. Petting, stroking and sitting on the pony is already a great adventure for children up to 2 years old. Kids can also take part in Cowboy Experience and Vaulting lessons: prior experience is not required.

So much more to experience

Have you already familiarised yourself with our horses and ponies? Then it is time for a world full of experiences: from exciting covered wagon rides and fun open air rides, to learning the first tricks of Vaulting. Or feel like a real cowboy with the Cowboy Experience and learn how to ride without a saddle.
