Farm Day for the whole family

Animal care and herding of goats "in the middle of the city" - a holiday experience out of the ordinary in the capital! Try an exciting and educational experience for families with children.

Program
We start the day by guessing our goat herd out in the green. Then our animal carers will take you on the care and feeding of livestock such as sheep, pigs, rabbits and cows, as well as horses, chickens and other bird species. We teach why different breeds need different care and have different needs. We also attach importance to explaining how we as humans move around the animals. How do the animals perceive our body language and how should we communicate with the animals in the best way? The offer is educational and practical for children from 6 years. Meal break 30 min. There is also time to enjoy the animals.

Beginner's Day with Horse

Beginner's Day by Horse is an offer for beginner-level children. The course will make the student safe with horses and learn to care and care, as well as the basics of equine care and handling of horses, which is also very useful for children who are riding lessons. Pupils will learn riding by sitting on a horse without a saddle, with lots of balance exercises and instruction of the correct seat. The horse goes in longe, ie it goes in line controlled by an instructor. This is a great way to train for good and efficient seating and balance in all three gaits. Riding in the longe is regularly used by professional riders to train on the seat and to "become one" with the horse's movements.

  • The children should be dressed for the weather as we move outdoors and indoors.
  • Read about riding equipment for proper clothing.
  • Bring a packed lunch and a drink bottle to the joint lunch from 2pm. 12-12.30.

The course Beginner's Day with a horse can be nicely repeated several days in a row. It's good to practice what you learn. Also, riding in longe is individual instruction, and a student who comes back several days will thus have the opportunity for progression. The course can also be taken only one day.

Time at 12-15.30. A joint lunch from 2 p.m. 12-12.30.
Number max 10 pcs.
Age from age 6
Price DKK 500, - (minimum 4 pcs for the course to be held at ordinary price).
Payment in advance from 11.45 the same day to ECT employee with bag, or at the ticket booth.
Attendance in the riding hall at 12.00 for registration.
