Cool Horse Riding in Switzerland

I have just returned from a few weeks backpacking trhough Europe with my husband and our teenage nieces and nephew.

Four of us went horse riding in Interlaken, Switzerland which is on of my fave places in the world. They were all on Swiss horses, ex army, bombproof awesome horses. I was on a gorgeous Morgan, a gift to the owner of the stables 12 years ago. She was a beautiful soft girl, LOVED her!

Here are a couple of pics.

My fave photo of the whole holiday!


Me and Lil.


Amazing view!


My husband.


The four of us before we headed out!


Spot the horse living in the downstairs lounge room...


I couldn't wipe that grin off my face the entire ride!


Thanks for looking!

I am mega jealous! I went to Switzerland six years ago and have always wanted to go back - such a wonderful country! I didn't get to go riding though, looks like it was a blast!

Wow, that looks amazing! I sounds like you had a great time.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

I envy you Aussies and Kiwis, you get so much vacation! We hardly get any.
I feel a bit green with envy. But I am happy for you and glad you could be generous and share your delightful experience.

Thanks everyone.

Yes Lauterbrunnen is in the Interlaken area. Stunning place, I just feel so inspired there.

We went riding with these people: Reitschulen Voegeli - Interlaken + Gstaad - Kutschenbetriebe - Pferdepension - Startseite

They also have stables in Gstaad. The girl who took us out said they have just build a $12 million glass walled arena there! I hope to see that one day!

Caroline - how much holiday time do you get per year? My husband works for himself and I am a contractor so we can take as much time as we like, we just don't get paid when we are not working. I can't wait to go riding in your neck of the woods one day, I love mountainous terrain.
