Nothing beats the feeling of cantering along the beach on horseback, riding through the polders or trotting along woodsy lanes. Walcheren is full to bursting with outdoorsy horsey fun. The riders’ network will bring you to the best spots, and safely, besides. Listen to the beat of the hooves in the waves and then softly patter through the woods on the way back. Next time, promise yourself, a ride through polders and country lanes. Walcheren is a deeply historical place, with traces of that history visible in the land. Dikes and dunes help keep our feet dry. The polders and their waterways, the latter one-time busy passenger and cargo routes. You may spot little clusters of homes, leftovers of former church-centred villages. Or the one of the old estates, built by the wealthy elites of the Golden Age, their very own escape to the country. Walcheren on horseback has it all, in spades.
