TRAIL HORSEBACK RIDING

Our horses are fit, some lively, some quiet, but all responsive and each having their own individual characters. There is a horse for everyone. They live the natural lifestyle in herds and it is a great joy to spend time watching them and learn about herd hierarchy. In more than 10 years of experience of running ranch and guiding trails we always care most for guest’s happiness and our horses.

Recreational trail riding does not have an age limit. If you like nature and horses you can enjoy in this type of recreation and active vacation. Trail riding (1-3 hours) with a guide is practiced through intact nature surrounding the ranch.

Riding skills are checked before leaving the ranch for a trail ride, so that the guide can choose the appropriate track based on the rider’s knowledge.

You can choose to spend one or more hours riding them, but for all questions you are free to contact us.

Two to three hours – recommended trail for both experienced riders and beginners who want to walk, trot or even gallop through the unprecedented beauty of nature and experience most of the beautiful terrain of the Plitvice Valley.

One hour – is a great opportunity for you if you are short on time and a family with small children to create an unforgettable experience with them.

  •   Trip Barać caves (ranch – Barac caves – source Japra – ranch)
    Departure from the ranch in the morning where you will be welcomed by warm and professional staff and horses. Riding through the unspoiled nature towards the caves takes about 2 to 3 hours. We pass through various meadows, fields and horse paths suitable for galloping and streams, which makes this tour special. Our faithful companions are the dogs Nera and Nora that keep us company while riding. The estimated time of arrival at the cave is around 11:00.  Upon arrival we take a few minutes to relax before visiting the interior of Barac`s caves. After sightseeing the caves we will provide lunch boxes (sandwich, juice andfruit) for you that you can eat on the site. During that time, horses are resting, eating and drinking waiting to take you back to the ranch.
