Noord-Beveland riders’ network: the endless island
The Riders’ & Carriage Route Foundation Noord-Beveland has set up a network of routes.
Noord-Beveland has masses of glorious horseback rides. Criss-cross the expanses of polder, go for a gallop by the sea, or soak up the serenity in woodland areas. This network promises to deliver you safely to the very best the island has to offer. Noord-Beveland is a haven for nature-lovers: salt-marshes, dunes, streams and inlagen – collapsed areas of land between dikes – and even the odd little wood. The ubiquitous little dikes bring variety to the land, not to mention stunning island views. The inlagen are a distinct Noord-Beveland feature, water-worn through the ages. The perpetual battle against the sea made people ever-fearful of the dikes breaching, prompting them to build ‘back-up’ dikes further inland. The land in between became something of a sunken meadow, highly welcoming to birds and plants. A rider-on-horseback’ll blend right in with all the wildlife!
