What you'll do

Upon meeting at the ranch, you will be introduced to the horses Aldo, April and Sixty and you will get to know each ones unique character. Help out with our daily routine and learn what is involved with keeping horses apart from just riding. We will feed, groom and muck out the stables (optional), then prepare the horses for their daily exercise. Learn how to handle horses whilst unmounted including leading and lunging. Learn to ride and have a ride around the ranch. Our horses are suitable for all levels and we are happy to tailor riding and unmounted activities to meet with your requirements. Once the horses have been exercised, we will turn them free in their pasture and then have some time for refreshments and play some fun games.

Zelg

I have horses in my blood, my grand farther was a jockey in Ireland and I have been drawn to horses since the day I first saw one. Aged 9, I volunteered at my local stable, then in United Kingdom, as a helper and have been involved with horses for over 30 years. After working with horses in competition stables I gained qualifications with the British Horse Society for care and with British Equestrian Federation for coaching. When I moved to Croatia I gave up life as a lawyer to follow my passion and now have my own horse club. The horses' wellness and riders' safety are my number one concerns and I love teaching others to enjoy time with horses and to experience the uplifting feeling it brings.
