Horses on the beach

Endless gallops on horseback over the beach. It is possible in Zandvoort aan Zee, but there are a couple of conditions that we would like to make you aware of.

It is prohibited to ride or have a riding or draft animal on the beach from the first of March to the first of October. This does not apply to riding or draft animals of the council, police, Zandvoort rescue team, the royal Dutch rescue company (KNRM), the Rijnland water board or the Department of Public Works. This of course only if they use the animals during the performance of their official duties. It is also not allowed to rent or offer for use a riding or draft animal to the public without a license.


Riding schools

Zandvoort aan Zee has two riding schools. Both riding schools offer great guided hacks on the beach or through the dunes. And for the little ones you can rent a pony for a short lead reign ride through the dunes.

Your own horse

Your own horse is welcome in Zandvoort aan Zee too! While you stay in your own accommodation, your horse is safely stabled with one of our riding schools. They both offer livery stabling. This way, you can hit the beach with your own horse for a fantastic ride.
