Horse Riding holidays in the Salzburger Land, Austria, for children

Riding holidays in Filzmoos with 8 Haflingers, Frisians and dwarf pony Nelly

Cross-country up hill and down dale

On our small farm in Filzmoos, surrounded by green nature, between flowering meadows and forests, 8 horses (4 Haflinger and 4 Frisians) are waiting for enthusiastic riders. The stable is located directly on our hotel grounds and is also within easy reach for the parents, should the children lose time while cleaning and grooming the horses.

In addition to the furry four-legged friends, Geli is the secret star at the riding stable. She is a passionate horsewoman herself and has turned her passion into a profession. And she also loves spending time with the kids. This ensures the kids have an unforgettable time with Geli and her loving horses.

More than just horse riding...

Geli enjoys it when there are hard-working helpers, who help her from Monday to Friday with the grooming, combing and saddling-up - after all 8 horses mean a lot of work.

Our riding offers

Children 3 years and older can take part in the horse riding. For our guests up to 18 years of age, riding is free of charge.

  • For the slightly more advanced there are the “Little Rides”. These last about 30 minutes and lead through open terrain in a walk and a trot.
  • The “Big Rides” for those saddle-safe riders take about 50 minutes, where there is also galloping.
  • On Friday mornings, for very good riders, an approx. 3.5 hour ride is available. This costs € 70 incl. a rider's snack stop.

1x weekly horse wellness day

Together with Geli, the horses are really pampered once a week as they have also earned it. The horses are washed, cleaned, their manes and tails braided and embellished with glitter spray, their hooves painted and lots more...

First and foremost, our WASTL

WASTL here, WASTL there – you have probably noticed that WASTL is a recurring term for us here at Neubergerhof. But why? This is simply explained:

WASTL is the head horse in the herd and the namesake of our kid’s club and also our mascot on the farm. And, of course, there's a story behind it.

WASTL and his story

One of our regular guests from Germany had a son named Sebastian. When 9-year-old Sebastian from Recklinghausen came here again on holiday with his family, a foal was born in our stable. Sebastian was the lucky one who was allowed to name the young Noriker. And he called it WASTL, the Bavarian-Austrian variation of the name of Sebastian.

Correctly named - Wastl von Waldprinz.

And our WASTL kid’s club has been in existence since 1996. 20 years of many laughing kids, who now come back to the Neubergerhof and to the WASTL with their own kids.

Prices for riders aged 18 and over:

  • Circuit on the lead (approx. 20 minutes) for beginners € 9
  • Small ride (approx. 30 minutes) for slightly advanced, saddle-safe riders € 17
  • Big ride (approx. 50 minutes) for fully saddle-safe riders € 25
  • 5-hour cross-country ride - 1x weekly on Friday for completely saddle-safe riders
    Cost: € 70 incl. rider’s snack stop (also for kids)
