We can offer you horseback riding accompanied by a guide through beautiful nature. Our free riding takes place near the ranch, on the picturesque landscape of the Plitvice valleys. You will ride through untouched nature, woods and forest paths, and sometimes you can see forest animals, deer, rabbits, pheasants …
Our horses are in shape, some lively, some more quiet, but all sensitive and each has its own characteristics. There is a horse for each of you. They live a natural way of life in the herd and it is a great joy to spend time watching them and learn about the herd hierarchy.
Riding skills are checked before leaving the ranch so that the guide can select the appropriate trail based on the rider’s knowledge. This riding option is suitable for all ages, from the youngest to the oldest, experienced riders, beginners and those without any experience. Our horses are calm and completely safe for every rider.
