Ameland: The horse riding island
Quiet, spacious and a beautiful nature. There is nothing better than to explore all this on horseback!
Riding school De Blinkert was founded in 1969, when we started with only four ponies. During the years, our family business grew steadily and since the summer of 2014 our enthusiastic team works under the direction of Mark Manje.
By now, our herd of horses consists of a wide variety of breeds, from Shetland ponies to Friesians and from Welsh ponies to Groninger horses, we are sure to have the best horse for each rider.
Where can you find us
Riding school de Blinkert is open year round.
Our stables are situated in the center of the village Ballum, at the Camminghastraat 13. During the summer months we are based at our summerlocation, Strandweg 16, across the street from the airfield.
Since we always divide the groups based on riding experience and in order to make the best horse-rider match, we would like you to make a reservation for the rides beforehand. Just give us a call and set a date for your ride. That way we can advise you on the best best beach ride suitable to your wishes and will confirm the appointment.
Payment is possible by card and cash, before you start your tour. Here you can see the prices and the rides we offer.
We look forward to taking you to the beach on horseback!
