Jenesien, home of the famous Haflinger horses
Experience the unique natural landscape of the hiking area Salten-Jenesien from an unusual perspective: on horseback or on a “Haflinger”, riding on bridleways and forest roads and through scenic pastures to the next hut.
A ride in the countryside is a great way to combine adventure and sport. Riding is demanding on your abdominal and back muscles, and relieves your backbone on a long term basis. And where else to better experience this than in Jenesien, home to the famous Haflinger horses?
At the numerous horse farms in and around Jenesien, a varied offer of horses is at hand. Whether alone, on a guided ride with like-minded people, or on a cozy, romantic carriage ride, just trot away your daily stress.
The Haflinger horses are characterized by their surefootedness, gentle temperament and good nature. In earlier days, this horse was used mainly as a workhorse, but nowadays, the flaxen pack horse is mainly a popular recreational horse.
On the Tschögglberg mountain, the Haflinger horses are still bred traditionally in small numbers on the farms.
