Galloping through the winter

In Annaberg, horses lead by a nose in the winter too. Schaglhof offers winter horseback rides and romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides.

Whether you go galloping on a Haflinger through the powder, take riding lessons in a warm arena or ride a horse-drawn sleigh through the snow-covered woods, one thing is clear: Annaberg is a wonderful fest for horse enthusiasts in the winter, too.

Horses have a special status in Annaberg, in particular the handsome chestnut Haflingers, which have long been successfully bred in town. Their patient and friendly manner makes this breed of horses well-suited for riding instruction. And horse lovers can look forward to a diverse selection of courses and guided cross-country rides. Experienced riders can explore a large system of riding trails on their own.
