Dienstl Gut Estate, near Klagenfurt
In sunny Carinthia, at the foot of Hochosterwitz castle, Dienstl Gut has been nestling on a peaceful, sun-kissed plateau for more than 400 years.
The equestrian center is the soul of the estate. For over 50 years horseriding on a considerable high level has been practised. It has an outstanding reputation as an equestrian center. Lessons and hacks available. There is a large indoor arena (20 x 60 m), power-ground-jumping arena (70 x 80 m), dressage ring and extensive cross country routes.
The Dienstl Gut gained a good reputation as the outstanding organizer of large equestrian championships and polo tournaments which culminated in hosting the European Military championship in 2002. The Austrian Society for Equine Physiotherapy "�GPPT" has selected Dienstl Gut as headquarters for its formal, veterinarian controlled education as horse physiotherapist.
Children's summer camp in the school holidays: grooming, saddling, riding, the horses. After lunch the programme includes swimming, playing, doing small handicrafts and helping out in the stables.
The log cabins are located in a circle around the camp fire next to the main hotel. The school horses are reliable and dependable. First-timers start nice and easy with lessons on the lunge. If you are an experienced rider, you may ride in the sandschool, jump or ride cross country. Maybe a polo-trial lesson is within reach. The week ends with the "Dienstl Gut Steeplechase" where you can show off your recently learnt riding skills. Cost 495.
You can arrange the riding on arrival but you will need to book your place on the kids' summer camp in advance: call 0043421334596 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
