Horseback riding in Valmiermuiža

Since old times Valmiermuiža has been well know of its hospitality. Nowadays in the truly hospitable manner of the old Valmiermuiža, owners of the brewery invite everyone to explore the manor surroundings and visit the Valmiermuiža Craft Brewery.

During your visit to Valmiermuiža, you can ride a horse or pony and see the picturesque surroundings full of ancient history.

Ancient Latvians honoured horses in a special way: horses gladdened them during leisurely rides and were irreplaceable helpers in heavy works at the manor.

Today, proudly riding on a horseback or enjoying a leisurely horse carriage ride, you can feel the peace and calm of Valmiermuiža and close your eyes and image historical scenes of bygone times.

Riding takes place in the park located next to Valmiermuiža Craft Brewery. You can also take a longer way and see Valmiermuiža's natural landscapes, ancient hunting park of the manor and the picturesque shores of the rapid Gauja River.

During a ride, the cabman will tell you interesting stories about rich history of Valmiermuiža and its surroundings and the most significant natural attractions.

Inquisitive guests can visit Valmiermuiža's stables and learn about the daily routine of training and taking care of horses, and afterwards make a small loop riding a horseback.
