Groepsrit met haflingers bij Manege Elzenhof in De Koog VVV Texel

Explore Texel in another way: by horse! There are even various ways for families and inexperienced riders on Texel.

Texel on horseback

You can explore your surroundings at a gentle pace if you go by horse. You can choose from covered-wagons trips, authentic horse-tram rides or go for a horse ride, arranged at one of the island’s riding stables.

A covered-wagon trip

Jan Plezier offers trips in covered wagons around the island. Flemish draught horses will take you through the dunes, De Muy, De Nederlanden, through the woods and across the beach to De Slufter. The covered-wagon trips leave from De Koog, at the Nikadel bus stop. Another option is a tour with Puur Texel. This tour takes you through the oldest part of Texel, the Hoge Berg area. Sit back and enjoy this special landscape.

Outdoor horse riding

What could be better than riding a horse in the great outdoors? A number of riding stables organise group rides to the woods or the beach. Your riding experience will be taken into account when you join the ride; rides along the beach are only suitable for experienced horsemen and women.
