    We suggest you spend a day hanging out with the horses. It’s fun, relaxing, even therapeutic!

    hanging out with horses

    For those who adore animals, furry creatures always have the power to put a smile on your face, irrespective of how bad your day has been. However, even if you are not a fan of animals, research has shown that interacting with horses can help keep the blues away. For those who are looking for a daily pick-me-up, try establishing a budding relationship with a horse and you can bet that you will instantly start to feel better.

    What do we gain from horses?

    Spending time with horses can be quite a learning experience. Through daily interaction, children learn how good performance is a product of understanding, patience, forgiveness, and other such essentials. Hanging out with horses can make one’s day take a turn for the better in simple ways.

    Off-road riding

    If you are a more experienced rider, we definitely recommend field riding in groups of up to six riders and for about two hours. The terrains of Luštica will surely delight you. Our horses will help bring you one step closer to an individual experience in connecting with nature.

    Riding school

    Whether you will be a good rider depends mostly on how you learn the first riding steps. Horseback riding is not limited to gender or age, and anyone can become a rider if they are willing to learn, accept knowledge and instructions in order to be able to ride independently. Under the watchful eye of a riding instructor, our trained and good-natured horses will teach you riding techniques, but above all they will teach you to think and know yourself through various situations that require physical effort, perception and quick response to a reaction. We also recommend riding to people with a lack of self-confidence, whom we help reduce the feeling of insecurity and fear and improve the feeling of general well-being.

    Archery is addictive. You have been warned!
