MØLLEGAARD ICELANDIC HORSES
Is owned and run by Karin Rahbek Jensen & Jan Horndrup Hansen
Karin has her experience from her childhood riding dressage on big horses. She had her own horse stabled in Aarhus in the 1970-s. She has had Islandic horses since1992. She is equally interested
in sport, breeding and training of the horses.
Jan has been riding Icelandic horses since 1981. Through the years his interest for competition riding has increased, and he has participated in the Danish championships several times. Lately he has also been riding horses at breeding shows. Besides competition riding he is committed to the breaking in and the training of horses, and he keeps up to date with his own development and his riding skills through courses and riding lessons.
Møllegaard is beautifully situated with many possibilities for riding tours. You can, forexample, ride around the lakes (the lake of Brabrand and the lake of Årslev), the old train track of Hammel and The Wood of True (500 hectare). We have our own oval and dressage track fully illuminated, pace track 200 meter, picadero (for training in lunge). We also have a large and cosy room for the riders with kitchen and there is always time for a cup of coffee and some horse chat. You are always more than welcome to visit.
