There are bridle routes and paths in almost all public forests and natural areas. Experience the beautiful nature on the routes in Ryeholm and Munkebjerg forests on the outskirts of Vejle or venture further inland and check out Randbøl Hede, the largest inland moor in Denmark. Here you will find bridle routes criss-crossing the spectacular landscape. At the exhibition center Kirstinelyst there is accommodation for both you and your horse. The place has a “hay-hotel” and traditional shelters, where you can spend the night. In close proximity you’ll find Fredrikshåb Plantage which has several bridle routes.
General rules for horseback riding in Denmark
- Horseback riding is permitted in all public forests, but there can be local restrictions. Keep an eye out for signs with “Ridning forbudt”(Horseback riding prohibited) on them. You kan read about horseback riding in public forests here.
- In private forests the owner decides where riding is permitted, and often you have to purchase a riding license.
- In open country riding is permitted on paths and roads unless prohibited by the owner(look out for signs). Riding in cultivated areas is prohibited without the owners consent.
