Preserving Equestrian Heritage:
The Lipica Stud Farm, located in the picturesque Karst region of Slovenia, is a cradle of equestrian tradition and home to the world-famous Lipizzaner horses. These majestic white horses have captivated horse enthusiasts and visitors for centuries. Our team recognized the significance of this historic site and the need to offer an experience that honors the equestrian heritage while ensuring its sustainable management.

At the heart of our pony horsing experience lies a profound commitment to the well-being and care of the horses. We work closely with the Lipica Stud Farm to ensure that all activities are conducted in alignment with the highest animal welfare standards. The horses are provided with spacious, comfortable stables and ample access to pastures for grazing. Their health is closely monitored, and expert veterinarians are on-site to address any concerns promptly.
Our pony horsing program at the Lipica Stud Farm goes beyond mere entertainment. We believe in creating educational experiences that foster a deeper understanding of equestrian heritage, environmental preservation, and sustainable practices. Trained guides accompany visitors, providing insights into the history, breeding, and training of the Lipizzaner horses. By sharing this knowledge, we aim to raise awareness about the importance of preserving cultural traditions and protecting the natural world.
