Fuglsang Horseback Riding

Get a wonderful horseback ride on a real Icelandic horse, through the beautiful hillside with an experienced guide and horses for riders of all levels. 

Jump in the saddle and experience the hilly countryside

Fuglsang, between Horsens and Silkeborg, lets you experience nature in its most authentic version. Embraced by hilly scenery and forests, you get a wonderful guided horseback ride on a real Icelandic horse. The only thing that disturbs your vista, is the ragged ears of your horse.

You quickly become familiar with the unusual movements and allow the senses to open. Because the hilly scenery is not only beautiful. With your undisturbed focus on the very moment, there is also room to notice the scent of the forest and the sound of the rhythmically clapping hooves in the gravel.

You don't need riding experience

Fuglsang Horseback Riding has horses for riders of all levels, whether you prefer a quiet, steady mate or a horse with more speed.

The horse is already saddled upon arrival. You get a riding helmet and they adjust the stirrups, so you are ready to experience the beautiful hillside. With an experienced guide, you can safely enjoy the ride in the saddle.
