Renting a horse at the Veluwe

Thanks to the beautiful Veluwe, it's possible to go for an outside ride in the magnificent, wooded area. While horseback riding at the Veluwe, you will be able to enjoy the natural splendor all around you. Before setting out on the outside ride, we'll give you a brief introduction lesson in order for the instructor to judge whether you can go on a forest ride responsibly (riding experience required).

Please note!
Due to pony camp at De Boshoek, no horseback riding lessons or other activities will be possible at the Pony Club between June 22nd and June 24th.


During extreme weather conditions, such as temperatures above 25 degrees, thunder storms or frost the Pony Club's activities are adjusted.

Activities outside school holidays

Outside school holidays there's still plenty to do at the Pony Club at De Boshoek. You can book group lessons, and learn more about horseback riding in small groups, divided by level. There are lesson groups for children and adults too. 

Do you want to get more familiar with horse language? With the horsemanship training you will learn all about communication between you and the horse!
