In this family-run company with really suitable name (Reiter means rider) everything has revolved around the welfare of the horse and riders for decades. The Reiter stables and stud farm is situated three kilometres north-west of the idyllic district capital Neulengbach and therefore just 16 kilometres away from Schloss THALHEIM. So you don't have to worry about travelling long distances from our hotel for your excursion on horseback. A short car trip and you can switch off during a ride through the slightly hilly landscape and recover from the hustle and bustle and everyday stress. Thanks to the facilities with a panorama riding hall, its own riding arena with floodlights and the unique terrain for hacking you can practise equestrian sport in any weather.

Schloss Wasserburg stables

Just five kilometres from Schloss THALHEIM hotel is another historical building that warmly welcomes you as a trail rider during your riding holiday. The historical stables are located in the Maierhof (the steward's estate) of the moated castle tucked away near Pottenbrunn close to St. Pölten. As the ancestors of the family who owns the castle today left their former home in England and bred horses on the estate; the fourth generation of the family lives in the castle today. The wonderful location and magical nature around Castle Wasserburg have a very special charm that will captivate you too.
