There are several companies scattered over the island where it is possible to rent a horse or go for a ride together. Terschelling has almost every kind of nature there is on such a small piece of island! So you can ride over the heath, in the forest, through the dunes or the polders and of course over the wide beach!
The type and duration of the ride always depends on the riding experience of the rider, which will be discussed at the beginning. Bring your own riding helmet and breeches is practical, but not necessary. However, make sure you wear good shoes, preferably with a heel; slip-ons are not allowed!
