Højrupgaard Put&Take

Højrupgaard – cabins, camping, shelters, hay hotel, horse riding tours and ”Put & Take” fishing lakes

Højrupgaard is an exceptionally cosy place with lots of space  – even for large groups of riders and horses. Overnight stays can be arranged in tents or caravans. The paddocks for the horses are close to the shelters. There’s a lovely view from the cabins out across the four ”Put & Take” fishing lakes – and you can rent rods to go fishing there. The farm itself is in Højrup, linked directly to the nature trail, which here consists of a 16-km stretch that was once a railway line but is now a walking/cycle path between Ringe and Korinth. It also connects up to the 75-km long www.riderutesydfyn.dk southern Fyn riding trail. There are also several opportunities for day rides close to Højrupgaard in the woods on the property and in the nature areas extending along the Silke- and Odense Å rivers, and in the Espe Statsskov forest. You can ride your own horse, or use one of Højrupgaards 14 friendly Iceland tour ponies (with guide). Rides lasting one hour or several hours are also available for both children and adults (max. 90 kg) – anyone can ride an Icelandic horse! You can also fulfil your riding dreams with a group trek lasting one or more days through the hilly countryside of southern Fyn, following the riding trail and staying overnight in the different Bed & Breakfast/hay hotels available close to the trail.
