What you'll do

We prepare the horses together before we go for a walk in the amazing nature around Grosswangen. One or two horses and our dog Cooper will join us. The guests can ride on the horse or lead the horse in turns. Depending on the season, we can pick fresh cherries, apples or berries from the trees or bushes and walk through fields of corn, grain, potatoes, onions... When we arrive back home, we care for the horses and feed them. Then we will have tasty apple juice from Grosswangen, freshwater from our own spring, coffee and Ritas homemade cake.

A really fun afternoon. My daughter and I had a great time. Rita is so kind. Her dog Cooper is the best trained dog I’ve ever met and full of personality! The horses were wonderfully patient with us and we enjoyed our ride very much. Absolutely recommended!

Meine 6 jährige Tochter und ich durften mit Rita und ihren beiden Pferden Mayk und Quarz ein paar schöne, spannende und eindrückliche Stunden verbringen. Wir sind immer noch hell begeistert und beeindruckt! Wir kommen bestimmt wieder :)
