Our Little Farm and Hooves & Boots Horsemanship join forces to organize a unique holiday and horse experience: It's all about horses. The SPECIAL WINTER EDITION week will not only be filled with horsemanship, horse behavior, the horse human connection theory and hands on lessons and much more, but we’ll also be making beautiful trail rides in the spectacular Swedish nature in the snow, go husky sledding, on a wildlife safari and much more. We’ll warm ourselves by the fire with hot chocolate and with a little bit of luck, nature might treat us with Northern lights.

We maintain an exclusive maximum number of participants so that there will be a lot of personal attention for you!
