Riding, Horse and carriage
"Riding in Getmossen" is a small family enterprise, run by Britt and Gunnar Nilsson, on their farm which has been in their family for many generations. Formerly they also bred horses and some of the present horses were born on the farm. Today the horses are used for the riding and cart-tours, and with a few of them Britt and Gunnar are successfully taking part in horse driving competitions. The neighbours Liv Jofjell and Wolfgang Ranke are assisting, especially through leading tours in English or German language as well as Swedish.
The horses are Icelandic, Norwegian Fjord and North Swedish horses. They are all robust, sure-footed, willing and friendly. The whole year they spend most of their time outdoors in the herd, which results in a good social behavior. The horses become harmonic, showing spirit and eagerness at pretentious cross-country-rides, and walk calm and relaxed in their familiar herd when they carry inexperienced riders on their backs.
