Flyinge Things to Do

  • Flyinge cottages

    The cottages along the road to the stud itself have been used by staff before and are incredibly charming with their gardens full of fruit trees.

  • Warren Hastings Park

    Warren Hastings was one of the really old legendary stallions at Flyinge. Such a legend that he got to lend his name to Flyinge's park where some of the most famous stallions have their final rest beneath a tree. The park is also used by Flyinge's riders for short treks or just some al fresco riding, away from the buzz in the yard.

  • Östra Gårdstånga Viking runestone

    Scania has surprisingly few runestones considering its location and population (compared to Stockholm where they seem to litter the countryside) but there are still plenty. At Röllebacken, in the middle of Flyinge itself, this "Östra Gårdstånga" one has been placed. Gårdstånga is a neighbouring village and the stone has been moved here from nearby...

  • Stork colony

    Flyinge has a stork project going on since 1989 and some cages next to the office wing for their project work. Storks were common in Scania earlier but then we lost them due to modernisation of villages and so on. In an attempt to welcome the wonderful birds back into our landscape, the project started and now there are 25 stork couples in various...

  • Mares' stable

    The mares are in a much less impressing stable, both externally (see second photo to know what to look for) and internally (third photo), with a much darker and narrower stable gang. Just reflects the human world, right? Still, this 1876-78 building has a nice and quiet feel to it and a vets office in the middle for when the foaling season is in...

  • Covered track

    The covered track was built in 1905 and there is none like it anywhere else in Sweden so I find it very fascinating. You can use it for racing since it is a covered oval, but today it is mostly used for training young horses in carriage pulling and other excersises. It has also got rings in the walls everywhere as this is the evacuation space for...

Flyinge Restaurants

  • Equestrian dining

    A typical riding school restaurant in that it is upstairs at a short end of the indoor school/manege so you can refresh yourself and still follow competitions and so on below. As such, it is of course also full of people in breeches and other riding gear but hey, that's why you're at Flyinge anyway right? The food is not outstanding, but it being...

  • Yummy buns

    A real family baker - they live in the other end of the house - this bakery mainly sells to companies which is why there is no flashy interior (see weblink) but that's what's so nice sine if you enter as a private customer you get really close to all activities. The friendly family sells you apple pies and their own very yummy version of a Swedish...

    By far the easiest way to get here is by car or bike, but failing that, there are buses, just not necessarily every day. Mondays to Fridays are by far the best travel days as then you get there with the 157 bus between Revingehed and Flyinge which runs via Södra Sandby, a major village just five minutes drive south of Flyinge and a bit of a bus hub easily reached by bus from Lund. You can get the same bus to either Flyinge Kungsgård and the stud, or to Flyinge itself. If you find yourself at the stud with a while to spare before the bus arrives, it is just a ten minute walk to Flyinge itself and its bakeries and runestone. The odd bus also takes you to Eslöv rather than Södra Sandby/Lund so check the site below. If you're desperate to get to one of the weekend shows at Flyinge, I'd try to cab it from Södra Sandby - it really isn't that far by car and cannot be more expensive than an average Malmö journey.

    "Rider & Horse" is of course the obvious thing around here :) A typical equestrian shop with anything from a cheap brush to expensive saddles and tack. They also sell on internet these days.

    Whilst visiting, I managed to spot Swedish national showjumper Peter Eriksson and get this shot of him. Later on, our roads crossed again as I got a peak into the show jumping wing of the yellow stable where there are some real treasures seen in all sorts of championships. When riding for Sweden, Eriksson is a good showcase as he sometimes rides Flyinge stallions as well as privately owned in his care and the second picture shows some proof of success. He's not the only famous name here though, there is a dressage stable as well, which once housed Finnish national star Kyra Kyrklund before she moved to England. Lots of riders of course take advantage of these stars holding clinics here regularly and also training specially selected youth.

    A star at home...

    No, you cannot rent a horse for the day here. But you can apply for various courses - contact Flyinge to see what they can offer if you're a non-Swedish speaker as it depends on your pre-skills which are obviously quite high to begin with if you're to be accepted by this crowd. As for Swedes, people come here from all over the country to do either college- or university studies on their favourite subject, the horse. Everything from riding it to running a big yard and schooling horses are taught, and much of the schooling takes place here in the Wallenberg Stable and school.
