Horse riding holiday

What could be more fun than horseback riding in the great outdoors? During a nice outdoor ride, there is a good chance that you will reach places that cannot be reached by car or bicycle. As a horse lover you naturally have a lot of time to sit in the saddle during your holiday. That is why Vodatent has listed the best campsites for a horse riding holiday for you. In most cases they are mini and farm campsites where you can rent a horse, but at some campsites your own horse is also welcome. In both cases, you will enjoy an unforgettable equestrian holiday with the most beautiful rides in the vicinity of our campsites.


On holiday with a horse in the Netherlands

As far as we are concerned, the Netherlands is the ideal country for a horse riding holiday. Why? It is close to home and extremely versatile! For example, you can climb in the saddle on the coast, ride a horse through the polder or enjoy a riding holiday on the large, quiet heather. The low countries are incredibly diverse and there are beautiful bridle paths everywhere.

Riding through the nature of Drenthe

One moment you are driving through the dense Drenthe forests and not much later you are galloping through the vast moors. Add to that the excellent bridleways and you know that this province is perfect for your horse riding holiday. It is not uncommon for fun hikes to be organized, so that you are guaranteed to see a lot and meet other horse lovers. You can of course also rent a horse yourself and explore the beautiful province of Drenthe.

Beach rides along the Zeeland coast

Getting a breath of fresh air at the beach is always nice. Especially if you do that during a beautiful outdoor ride through the dunes or along the coast during the setting sun. The bridleways crisscross the province and there is plenty to see. Or gallop on the beach. Beautiful rides are also regularly organized in Zeeland, especially beach rides. This way you will get to know new people in no time with whom you can make beautiful rides together.

On a horseback riding holiday to the Gelderland regions

In Gelderland you can ride for hours without meeting anyone. Enjoy all the beauty that this province has to offer. Absolute stars are of course the Gelderland regions such as the Veluwe and Achterhoek. There are numerous equestrian routes along forests and moors. Many of these routes are part of a network of nodes, so that you can determine your own route. Gelderland is the place to be for a horse riding holiday.

A riding holiday in Friesland

Did you know that Friesland has two of the largest nature reserves in the Netherlands within its borders? In Dwingelderveld and Drents-Friese Wold it is wonderful horse riding and you can find plenty of beautiful equestrian routes.

Horse riding in Overijssel

The Sallandse Heuvelrug and the Vechtdal are beautiful places for horseback riding in Overijssel. Here you drive through fields, forests, villages and polders. If you pay attention, you can spot special animals. A big advantage of horse riding is that you come to special places in Overijssel and you are less likely to scare off the animals. With a bit of luck you might see deer, boars, squirrels and badgers!


A horse riding holiday in Belgium

A riding holiday in Belgium is also nice and close to home. This country is perfect for riders who enjoy riding in nature. With the Ardennes and Limburg within its borders, Belgium is perfect for wonderful outdoor rides.

Riding in the untouched nature of the Belgian Ardennes

Stiff climbing on unpaved bridle paths with rocks and along babbling brooks. It is not without reason that the Belgian Ardennes are popular with survival enthusiasts and that also applies to horse riding. The adventurous rider should definitely go on a riding holiday here!

The extensive equestrian network of Belgian Limburg

Anyone who loves horseback riding will definitely enjoy themselves in Belgian Limburg. Here you will find no less than 650 kilometers of bridle path straight through forests, sandy soils, dunes and heath. Even better is that it is a network of nodes, so that you can map out your own route. And if that's not enough: the network connects perfectly to a number of networks in Antwerp and the Netherlands. So here you can go horse riding endlessly. If you and your horse are in need of a well-deserved break, you can join one of the horse-friendly cafes along the bridle paths. As far as we are concerned, a horseback riding holiday cannot last long enough here.
