Friday: In addition to the beautiful island of Römö, the island of Mandö is also available to explore. Here there are only 35 residents so winter time is very quiet. Here the equestrian center has a small farm, called Mandøgården. With this base, a lot of opportunities are offered to explore the nearby island of Mandø on horseback. On this ride, the exact start time cannot be determined until 1-2 days before due to the tide so it can be accomplished. In the stable in the morning the horses are brushed and loaded into horse trailer. They are driven to Vester Vedstad where the horses are unloaded and saddled and the adventure begins. There are trees down in the seabed that mark the path that is best to take to reach Mandö. The horses tussle bravely through the water. This historic road is not suitable for cars as it is rarely completely dry. You ride across moors and along the beach and pass through Mandö's only Mandø City. Then you reach Mandögården where you will spend two nights.
Saturday- 3,5 hours riding to Koresand Today you will experience some of Denmark's most unique and untouched nature areas on the horseback. At Koresand, you have the chance to see gems, seals, a rich bird life and not a tourist or car within sight! Koresand is a ca. 24 km2 large sandbank in the Wadden Sea southwest of Mandö. The area is also called the wet desert and for good reason. There is sand as far as the eye can see. If you go far enough, you see neither land nor water. Although Koresand gets bigger and bigger every year, there is no vegetation or permanent dunes as the whole area is still covered by the sea during the storm. It is an absolutely amazing freedom to walk, tolt and gallop across the flat sand, with the feeling that there is not end to it. Plenty of space, the sea all around, good views and no people, it makes Koresand the perfect home for hundreds of seals as well as thousands of birds. After about 3½ hours of riding you are at Mandögården again.
Sunday: 2 hours riding to Vester Vedstad - After breakfast you saddle the horses and begin the ride across the seabed to Vester Vedsted. First you will enjoy lovely riding over the vast beach and then again cross the sea on the sea floor when it is possible given the tides. Back at Römö, transport is waiting for you and the horses to come home to the stable and the hotel. The riding weekend is already over so next time you want to be here for a week. Departure after 13.00 approx.
OBS! If the weather makes it impossible to ride out to Mandö, eg storm or high water level, then there will be long rides on Römö instead.
