Welcome to Nybrot Gård
In 1996 the dairy farm at Nybrot was converted into a stable with a large riding arena and livery services. Our personnell has a solid education and over 20 years of practical horse experience.
We can offer horseback riding for both experienced and novice riders. There are possibilities for both short and long riding trips along small roads, in forest and mountain areas.
The farm is located in rural surroundings in beautiful Helgeland, easily accessible by bus or car along the countyroad 17 between Sandnessjøen and Mosjøen.
Our horses belong to the native Norwegian breed called Nordland/Lyngen horse. They are relatively small but strong, and measure between 120 and 148 cm at the withers.
The breed share a common ancestor with the Icelandic horse that the vikings brougth with them to Iceland.
At Nybrot we focus on animal welfare. Our horses are therefore barefoot and live in social groups all year around.
The farm provides riding helmets for all riders to wear when attending our ridning trips. We also recommend that riders bring their own shoes with a moderat heel (e.g. hiking or mountain boots) both for safety and comfort.
You will find us only 15 km from Sandnessjøen city.
