Horse riding tourism

Horses have played a crucial role in history of Bulgaria, as the brave Proto-Bulgarians, before settling in the Balkans, crossed the Danube holding the horses’ tails. For this reason, the first symbol of the Bulgarian State was a horse tail. Bulgaria has over 100 equestrian centres at the foot of the mountains as well as in the lowlands, offering horse riding tours and holidays to beginners as well as advanced riders and children. You can choose between our daily, weekend or weekly programmes of horse riding tourism. 

We offer you a riding expedition into the mountains, where you can feel the incredible bond which is formed between the horse and the rider, as they travel along mountain paths, in harmony with the surrounding nature.

Our horses are raised according to the method of natural horsemanship, where communication with horses is based on observation of the behavior of wild horses and their language. Our horses grow up and live unrestrained in natural environment, they know and feel confident on our trails, even the most extreme ones. They are fully reliable and adapted to all situations which may occur in the mountains.

Our horses are representatives of the local East-Bulgarian breed and crossbreeds of fullblood Arabian horses. They are very tough, smart and feel comfortable in the mountain climate and conditions. Our priority is their full health and great form, we also make sure the horses get a well-deserved rest between voyages. 

In addition, our mountain guides are people who know grew on these lands and know them inside out. They work with our horses all year round so they have their full trust and obedience. They will be your captain and take care of your safety and the good mood of the the whole crew, men and horses alike.
