Enjoying the woods on a horseback

Newer Older

Lage Vuursche is a village in the Dutch province of Utrecht. It is a part of the municipality of Baarn, and lies about 5 km west of Soest, in the middle of the forest. Drakestein, the former residence of Queen Beatrix, is situated just east of the village. An oasis of rest directly next to the big city life. The woods are there beautiful and varied. One can make a horse ride.

I think the most natural way to enjoy the countryside is on horseback. Certainly, it is how many of our ancestors and famous novelists and poets came to experience the diversity of the woods of the Lage Vuursche.

De bossen in de omgeving van Lage Vuursche zijn voor een deel eigendom van Staatsbosbeheer en maken deel uit van de boswachterij De Vuursche. Ook Het Utrechts Landschap beheert verschillende gebieden, zoals deze prachtige laan in het Maartensdijkse bos. Een oase van rust pal naast de Randstad. De bossen zijn er mooi en afwisselend. Statige beukenlanen getuigen van het verleden, toen hier nog allerlei landgoederen lagen. Paardrijden kan men bij diverse manages in de directe omgeving.

    Great shot Ben. The trees, depth and vanishing point really add to this shot of the rider and horse. A+
