Why not book your child’s first pony ride or a lesson with one of our professional instructors? You can also explore the woods on horseback or in a horse-drawn covered wagon. Young or old, novice or experienced rider? We cater for all age groups and levels of experience! We also offer activities for those with a disability.

Pony walk outs for the youngest

Children love the adventure of sitting on a pony. For the youngest we offer a half hour walk out in our own little forest. The child has to be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult on foot holding the lead rein. Bergemo staff will instruct parent/responsible adult and child in advance. Afterwards the pony may be treated to some horse candy.
Pony walk outs can be scheduled almost every day! Booking in advance required. Please check out the activities for dates and times! 

A ride lasts 30 minutes and costs €20.00 per pony and €25.00 per horse.

Intermediate rider class
This class is meant for riders from the age of eight, who have had at least 20 to 25 instructional lessons. Required abilities: rising trot, steering and the three basic gaits of walk, trot and canter. If you have an FNRS Ruiterpaspoort, please bring it with you, so we can assess your level of experience at a glance.

Group lessons cost from €35 per pony and €40 per horse.

For holidaymakers and day-trippers who want to ride more often the Bergemo Discount Card may be good value.
Please note: Riders having a(n) (annual) membership enjoy special rates.

Unsupervised riding

This option is available for intermediate or advanced riders. After having groomed and saddled the pony/horse you can ride unsupervised in one of our arenas and practice for example dressage. Riders who wish to ride without supervision must have a Ruiterbewijs (rider’s license). The ability of riders who do not possess such a document, will be assessed during a group lesson. The assessment will take at least 15 minutes and, after demonstrated ability, the rider may ride unsupervised in another arena. Riders deemed not to possess sufficient skills and experience will have to stay in the group lesson.
