Horse riding in Ötztal

The greatest happiness on earth...

Sitting in the saddle of a horse, exploring the natural landscapes of picture-book Ötztal: an absolute holiday highlight for horse riding aficionados who are firmly in the saddle on magnificent guided tours leading through the valley's riding paradise. Horse riding lessons are held in outdoor riding arenas or in the riding hall.

Conquer scenic Ötztal on horseback

The riding stables and farms between Sautens at the entrance to the valley and Obergurgl at the rear end have the best horses waiting for passionate horseback riders: surefooted Shetland ponies, Icelandic horses, Haflinger horses, warm-blooded animals and many more - lovingly cared for and perfectly trained for riding lessons. Expert riding instructors choose the right beginner's horse and improve the skills on the lunge. Those who have already set spurs to their horse can join the trail rides. Trail rides make every rider's heart beat faster. Special tip: if you prefer a more leisurely pace we recommend a horse carriage ride with the whole family. It takes you to Ötztal's most beautiful spots without sore muscles.
