Riding vacation in Saalbach-Hinterglemm

Horse stable & riding ground at the Unterschwarzachhof

So many things connect us with horses. They are so much more than just a mount, they are companions, reliable partners and often best friends. Experience the special feeling and passion that connects us with these creatures even on vacation.

Our new and modern riding facility for your riding vacation in the Salzburger Land is small and fine. We have made the good even better to meet your highest expectations. The spacious riding arena with well-kept ground and irrigation and excellent obstacles for show jumpers and dressage riders is available for riding lessons or vacations with your own horse. Look forward to an exclusive riding vacation with or without your own horse. Bright, large boxes with paddock, pasture, horse solarium and many other amenities for rider and horse await you.

4*S Hotel with horse farm in Austria

Embedded in the lush meadows of the farm, the stables, the riding arena and the outdoor facilities were created with a lot of love, time and dedication to create another gem at the Unterschwarzachhof. The enchanting and spacious gardens, which connect the hotel and the terrace with the stables and outbuildings, convey a feeling of being in a village within a village.

Next to the stables and the outdoor riding arena with grandstand, the fountain splashes and the leaves of the shady lime tree rustle in the wind. Children's laughter can be heard from the children playing outdoors and from the restored children's farm, where our little guests can be completely to themselves in their own farmhouse with new friends under loving care. In the Minialm Hut, the children cook and bake, do handicrafts or play in their own kitchen. In the mini-farm with free run our donkeys, goats, alpacas, sheep and rabbits are looking forward to being stroked. And while you enjoy the mountain panorama in one of the swinging loungers, you can smell the scent of fresh mint from the herb garden.

General information about riding lessons

Hints & interesting facts about riding lessons

The completed questionnaire should be given directly to the riding instructor at the RIDING TABLE. If you have not received it yet, you can also get it directly from the riding instructor or from our reception team and fill it out.

    • Registration for riding lessons

      Every Sunday there is a RIDING TABLE in the riding stable from 18.00 to 19.00 o'clock. At this meeting you can discuss open questions, bookings and gladly also wishes together with the riding instructor.

      The riding instructor will allocate the respective riding units for the coming week and you will receive your appointment card directly after consultation with the instructor. If you cannot attend the RIDING TABLE, please contact our reception team for booking the riding units.
