Horse riding vacations with the family in Bavaria

The Friedrichshof offers a lot of variety for our families who are enthusiastic about horses and riding. Our trained riding instructors show the children and also you yourself the right way to handle the horse and are always at their side. Many adventures await our little and also big riders every day. Whether it is a playful introduction to the horse, rides into the countryside or professional riding lessons – it will be an unforgettable vacation experience.

Guided pony riding: Even the youngest can be introduced to pony riding with us slowly and playfully. The guided pony riding takes place from Monday – Saturday. Once a week (usually on Saturdays) we offer a free “trial pony ride” (duration approx. 5 minutes) as part of the childcare program.

Guided horseback riding: also for inexperienced and timid riders. Ride through the nature with a trained companion. Horse is guided at a walk. You are welcome to enjoy the time in the saddle together (max. 2 horses/2 riders).

Lunge lessons: first riding attempts for beginners, according to the student’s sense of movement and body, empathy and willingness to concentrate.

Private lessons: for adults and children who already have some riding experience. Minimum age: 6 years

Accompanied rides nature: only for experienced riders! Suitability for the ride is assessed in advance by one of our riding instructors during a private lesson. Rides are offered in different lengths and difficulty levels. Rides only take place in the company of a riding instructor!

Our riding instructors introduce themselves: Thomas, Patricia und Johanna

Correct riding and the right handling of horses are very important to me. As a former event rider I like to pass on my knowledge to my riding students. With my own horse I like to be on the cross-country course. If you have any questions about horses and riding lessons, you can always contact me.

Reiturlaub in Bayern - Pferd Johnny - Familienresort Friedrichshof


Already in early childhood days I got infected with the “horse virus” and from that moment on I regularly took dressage and jumping lessons. Through my own three horses and the horses of a breeder, I was able to gain a lot of experience with different horses and riders. The varied lessons for children and adults are especially close to my heart.

I discovered my love for horses as a toddler. From pony riding, vaulting and classical riding I came to western riding, which I still actively practice today with my own horse. I particularly enjoy working with different animals and children.
