Then over the heath and out to the Kirkeby plantation, where there are many nice riding trails. You will pass Römö's highest point, Spietsbierg.
Monday - 3 hours Havsand Along cozy little forest trails you come to Vråby nature area. Then across the dunes out to the almost endless beach. You ride along the seafront, and on this solid ground it fits great with beach gallops.
Tuesday - 2 hours Sönderbeach Today you ride on Sönderbeach on the west side of Römö. Here, the finest sandy beach stretches along the entire length of the island. The beach is open and flat, which means that the opportunities to find amber are good. The northernmost part of the beach is blocked off as a military zone, while the rest of the beach can be used freely. The view is miles long, sand and sea.
Wednesday - Resting dag - Today your body gets rest after all the riding. Depending on the season, there is a lot to choose from. The beach is always popular whether you can swim or not. Or why not take advantage of the wellness department.
Thursday- 2 hour ride - Today will be a mixed ride both in the forest and on the beach. After a day of rest you are ready for new experiences on horseback. Tolt and canter is mixed, depending on the surface. Video in the bar in the evening.
Friday - 5 hours Römö half day ride with picnic Today you are invited to the longest ride of the week which is a pure delight on the comfortable Icelandic horse which is made for long rides. From the stable you ride along winding forest paths in fresh tolt. A canter will take you across the fields and then reach Sönderstrand over the sand dunes. Once out on the beach you can once again enjoy the canter, some times of the year only you are there, the whole beach is clean from imprints, only your hoof traces that show that someone has been there. During high season, there is another scenario, with bathers and full activity. When you reach Lakolk, the island's beach town, you take the saddle of your horses and eat your lunch. After well-deserved rest, it's time to get back up again and you ride along the dunes, across the road and into the woods again. Along the winding roads, you ride tolt and canter and finally reach the stable again. Say goodbye to your four-legged friend, or why not see you later.
