  •     fine school horses and ponies in all sizes and for riders of all level
  •     qualified, motivating instructors
  •     as FNRS-certified four stars facilities we pledge the safety and health of our customers and horses
  •     two 20x40 m indoors dressage arenas
  •     horse riding classes at various levels in groups of 6 tot 12 students six days a week
  •     specialised classes for small children and disabled persons
  •     summer season outdoor rides in the beautiful surroudings of EEPM
  •     stalls for hire for privately owned horses and ponies: good facilities, outdoor arenas and pastures
  •     a cosy bar for some after class drinking with a vista on the indoors arena
  •     lots of extra activities, competitions, summer camps, outdoor rides, shows, demonstrations...

Interested?

Our classes are in Dutch, but frequently welcome foreign students. Our instructors will always help you out by giving English commands as well. Language is hardly ever a barrier so do not hesitate.

Contact us for more information. Feel free to come over and have a look or make an appointment for a test ride.
Please note the following reservation:

EEPM is a school open to any one interested in taking classes for a few months or more (for some a lifetime), but we are sorry to say that we do not offer 'once only' rides for tourists.

Welcome at EEPM and enjoy your rides in all safety!
