HORSES AND EQUIPMENT

Recently we have 13 horses from which 9 are strong and friendly tour horses. Most of them started out as workhorses so now that they are only used for riding it is much easier on them. We also have horses that were raised as tour horses so they are very reliable when it comes to climbing up the hills. The horses are free range so they are calm and balanced. 

MEAL

We offer local food. Copious breakfast and three course dinner: soup, second course and dessert. Picnic for lunch.

We also prepare vegetarian meals if needed and pay attention to the allergies if you notice us in advance.
