From a traditional studfarm with the ambiance of the 1920’s, GreenWoods/ In ‘t Groene Hout has been developed into a cultural center for traditional and romantic country life on the themes of music, hunting, nature and horses.
Throughout the year events are regularly organized with highlights such as GreenWoods Romantic Hubertus Fall Fest and the GreenWoods Jolly WinterWonderLand Christmas Rides.
Riding tour with Jan Plezier Meijendel
Those who used to come to the Meijendel Farm, will remember the horses in the stables, the cavalry by the fire, tasty pancakes and the wonderful walks, bike- or horse rides in nature. Lovers of Old Dutch traditions can indulge themselves again. Several times a week you can ride with a Jan Plezier – classic carriage – drawn by heavy Gotland ponies from the Ardennes of the well-known Wassenaarse Studfarm In ‘t Groene Hout. The janpleziermeijendel.nl only rides on weekdays. The days/times can be viewed daily at www.janpleziermeijendel.nl.
Riding tours through the Wassenaar residential areas, the dunes and the old village where you can stop for a drink in the rustic Hunting Room. Or visit the famous Falabella miniature horses ‘Lord & Lady Fisher’s Heritage’ and the GreenWoods race Arabs an the Ardennes and Noriker horses.
