The horse

Welcome to the stables at Hallingtunet!

In the DKS program The Horse, students will get to know a little about how people lived on the farm several hundred years ago with a focus on the horse. We will look at the various houses and go into the Villandsstallen to see the exhibition: Everyday horse and holiday horse. The everyday horse was invaluable and important on the old farm. It was a car, tractor and truck and it pulled the plow and drove hay. On the family's special days, they also depended on the horse that transported the christened child, the confirmand, the bride and groom and the deceased to the church. Welcome to a beautiful and exciting journey in the history of the horse from wild horse to soul mate. After the presentation, the students will be able to ride fancy horses, create stables with horses and walk on stilts.

Villandstallen at Hallingtunet is a traditional combination of a stable and a barn with a loft on the second floor. It was built in Hol in 1720. 200 years later the building was taken down and rebuilt at Marienlyst, where it stands today. The exhibition shows the horse in its two functions: on the first floor as a working horse, on the second floor as a holiday horse.


Before you come to the museum, it is good if each student writes a sentence about something they know about the horse, so that the students feel prepared for our conversation-based communication.


Finishing work can be to make fads and learn songs such as. Fola, foal Blakken and Sko hesten,
