Horse Riding & Carriages 
in Gstaad

Take a romantic moonlit carriage ride through Gstaad’s elegant streets or glide across Saanenland in a horse-drawn carriage, warmly wrapped in blankets. Collected from Ultima Gstaad, parade through the Promenade or head to Lauenen Lake where you can stop for Swiss fondue at a traditional chalet. 


For horse lovers, pick up the speed along Gstaad’s snow-covered hacking trails, where a canter against the striking mountain backdrop will leave you captivated. At the state-of-the-art Gstaad Equestrian Centre (Reitzentrum Gstaad) in Mettlen, horse-riding lessons are available for all abilities in German, English and French and there are also skills-focused lessons for dressage and show jumping.
