The Trattlerhof riding stables

At the Hotel GUT Trattlerhof**** we like to say that riding on horseback is heaven on earth. We’ve elt that way ever since the riding stables were first set up at the GUTshof. Equestrian sports and a love of horses have always had a special place in our hearts at the Trattlerhof, as reflected in its 370-year history.

At the Hotel GUT Trattlerhof`****, we’re experts at looking after our guests. We also lavish plenty of attention on our eight trained horses, who obviously love their stables. Guests who ride here get to enjoy the training area and paddock beside the stables, too. Riding here is a magical experience for horse-loving guests, families and the Trattlerhof team. Besides riding lessons, we also offer unforgettable rides through lush meadows and pristine forests.

“Our stables have been home to wonderful horses ever since 1642; our records recount the history and names of their 1,476 ancestors.”

If you’ve dreamed of a riding holiday since you were a child, then the Hotel GUT Trattlerhof**** is the place for you. Whether you’re a complete novice or a seasoned equestrian, wild horses won’t be able to drag you away from the GUTshof’s on-site riding stables. And that’s not all:

Right next to "Trattlers Einkehr", children's eyes light up at the farm's own pony farm. The four ponies Nanook, Nagona, Elegance and Shakira look forward to lots of grooming & cuddling and love to romp around the spacious course together with visitors and farm guests. Visits to the pony farm are possible daily on request between 10.00 and 17.00 (May to October, and December to Easter - dates according to website & notice board, advance booking requested).

Torchlight hike with horses

Many people go hiking at night with torches and horses in Carinthia
There is something magical about a torchlight hike with the horses at night

The GUTshof promises holiday experiences of a special kind. One such experience is undoubtedly the atmospheric torchlight hike, during which you stroll together with our horses through the twilight of the holiday idyll Bad Kleinkirchheim. Accompanied by the glow of the twinkling stars, the warming crackle of the torches, the lush green grass under your feet and the good-naturedness of our farm horses, you hike through the valley of the Carinthian Nockberge mountains in a completely new, peaceful way. The hike is rounded off with a campfire at the Trattlers Einkehr hut restaurant.
