The No.1 Equestrian Holidays in Slovenia

sLOVEnia HORSE RIDING offers unique opportunities for exploring the most beautiful parts of Slovenia on horseback.

Slovenia has it all...is a country of feelings. You can feel the beauty of green Slovenia as you enjoy a view of the famous Lake Bled and the beloved Lake Bohinj - beautiful valleys in Triglav National Park. Slovenia is an exciting country of extraordinary diversity. It is located at the con uence of the Alpine, Mediterranean, Pannonian and Karst regions, the latter having one of the world's most unique landscapes. Slovenia is renowned for its scenic lakes, vast forests and underground caves carved out by water eroding karst limestone. Apart from the beauties of nature, the country offers excellent cuisine and wine and diverse and countless opportunities for horseback riding.

You will also get to know the cradle of the Lipizzaners. Lipica is the oldest European stud farm continuously breeding one of the oldest cultural horse breeds. As such it has a remarkable importance as a cultural, historical and natural heritage for Slovenia and Europe. The history of Lipica is closely intertwined with the Habsburgs and the time when horse was considered an ideal and was at the time a crucial strategic advantage. The Lipica story begins in the 16th century when the abandoned summer residence became the court stud farm. The charms of the Lipica Stud Farm are hidden in the unseen, the stories written by the local history. Only when walking on the historical paths we can truly experience the greatness of the local equestrian tradition.
