Here are some suggestions for your ride to give you the best possible experience on horseback and help you to take good care of nature.
- Use bridle paths if possible. Trotting, tölting, and gallo-ping gaits are likely to ruin the forest roads for cyclists, prams, wheelchairs, and people with mobility impair-ment.
- Use the verge when riding on gravel roads.
- Change to a walking gait and keep to the right when pas-sing pedestrians and cyclists.
- Always pass other riders in a walking gait.
- Logs, stacks, dikes, and ditches should not be used for jumping.
- Respect nature and other people in the countryside.
- Take special care when bypassing enclosures with grazing animals. Walk past them if you’re unsure of how they will react.
- Park your horse trailer where it will not inconvenience other visitors to the countryside.
Only ride on beaches and protected dune areas if there is legal public access, i.e. if you can get to the beach via roads or paths where riding is permitted.
Riding on beaches is only permitted during the period 1st of September – 31st of May and only in areas with sparse vegetation. Remember that many groundnesting birds such as skylark, lapwing, common ringed plover, and oystercatcher breed on the salt marshes. They are extremely susceptible to disturbance, so please ride at the water’s edge during the breeding season from March to June.
In the Mols Bjerge area, there are more than 20 km of marked bridle paths outside the enclosures.
Consult the app Nationalpark Mols Bjerge to see horse-trailer parking facilities and bridle paths or download riding map.
There are two parking spaces reserved for horse trailers. You can find them at Agri Bavnehøj and Øvre Strandkær.
From these parking spaces there is a network of trails through the landscape with stunning views and cool forests.
