Bring your own horse to Texel!
Do you own a horse and would you love to bring it on holiday to Texel with you? No problem. Simply drive your car and horse trailer or lorry onto the ferry and off you go. When it's busy, you and your horse have priority on the ferry so you won't have to miss a crossing. However, do make sure you're on time, because if the ferry is full when you arrive, we will unfortunately be unable to accommodate you. The crossing takes about 20 minutes and you can stay with your horse the whole time. The short, steady ferry ride means your horse won’t really experience any sailing stress. On Texel you can stable your horse at Manage Kikkert, Paardenhotel Texel, Ruigehoogte, Eagles Ranch or Madura Texel. Depending on which park or campsite you are staying at, you won’t have any trouble finding nearby stables; with grazing facilities also available in most cases. But, of course, you will also want to go on fantastic rides together, perhaps in the pine forest and dunes, or on the beach. There are various riding trails, which are marked out with signs showing a horse and rider. Gallop through the surf with the wind in your face and the horse's mane This way, both you and your horse enjoy a wonderful holiday!
