During the horse-riding lessons, Margit Ludwig takes great care that the rider establishes a relationship with the horse by acting in a professional way. As such, the lessons only take place individually or in small groups. Thanks to many years of experience and lots of specialist training in handling horses and teaching, she has an extensive repertoire of training methods to draw from. This allows her to design the lessons ideally to suit her students’ individual needs.
Horse-Riding and Vaulting
The greatest happiness is being on horseback. This saying is especially true for the horse farm Reiterbauernhof Ludwig where you can experience these moments yourself. Vaulting (possible from the age of 5) is great fun for the kids. The fun starts with warming up and stretching, and practising movements in the group and exercises on a wooden horse. Then, the kids can ride a real horse, either alone or in pairs. They walk, canter and gallop, in our all-weather, roofed riding hall. Professional handling of a horse also involves cleaning, tending and above all praising the animals.
Rides to the nature reserve "Naturpark Raab" guarantee unforgettable moments in the great outdoors. Riding through the forests and meadows allows you to see the horse in its element and better understand how it responds to its environment. In the interest of safety and to ensure that nobody is pushed too hard, the Ludwig family ascertain every rider's ability in advance.
Fun and Riding at the Holiday Camp
The holiday camp is the perfect place for small groups of children to spend an eventful summer. Kids and teenagers (aged 8 to 18) with a passion for horses visit the camp alone. In the course of six days, they can get familiar with farm life and the horses in an immersive way. With the right equipment, the daily riding lesson is just as much of a highlight as the overnight stay in the garden house or the food on the meal plan they prepare together. Whenever the children are free to play and go exploring the farm after the riding lesson, there is always an adult in close proximity.
However you choose to spend your day at the horse farm Pferdehof Ludwig - by the evening you will still be able to feel how the atmosphere and, above all, the look in the horses' eyes have touched your soul.
