Learn horseback riding - lessons in Ausseerland

The Ausseerland is probably one of the most beautiful places to try out horseback riding. The owners of the horse farms between Altaussee and Bad Mitterndorf have maintained a close bond with horses, in some cases since childhood. They slowly introduce their visitors to the animals and explain how to handle them properly.

Saddle up: For a safe ride, the riding stables hold helmets ready to borrow. And of course there's hay, apples and carrots as a reward for the horses.
