Multi-activity horse riding holiday

If you prefer to combine your horse riding holiday with other activities we can recommend a broad range of arts and nature activities for adults and children.

We have experience organising horse riding in the Central Balkan in combination with nature discovery activities, bushcraft, bee keeping and mountain farming, culinary activities such as cheese making, rakia distilling (for parents only) and traditional Bulgarian cooking. So after a day’s horse riding you can enjoy nature in a different way and practice for fun traditional Bulgarian arts and crafts such as pottery.

We can also combine horse riding with other nature activities such as walking and MTB mountain biking.
