For centuries, Poland has been a bridge between the East and West. Set in the heart of Europe, Poland is a multifaceted country where the capital and medieval towns are now busy with modern city workers and where horse-drawn carts negotiate country lanes, untouched by progress. Poland remains reasonably cheap and safe, with hospitable people who welcome visitors. Over the past decade, it has developed into a modern, vibrant and progressive state, yet at the same time it maintains its traditional culture. It is a fascinating destination and now is a good time to go, visit and definitely ride a horse.
Poland with its wonderful beaches, fantastic countryside and lakes is perfect for most outdoor activities. Leisure in Poland is growing as fast as the tourism and horse riding in this unspoilt countryside is a real pleasure for horse lovers.
Horse breeding has an extremely long history in Poland. Polish horses are famous throughout the world. They breed full-blooded English horses, purebred Arab horses and Anglo-Arab breeds Malopolska (southern Poland), Wielkopolska (western Poland) and Slaska (Silesia)]. Tarpans (wild descendants of original steppe horses) and Huculy (a breed kept by East Carpathian mountaineers) are also bred.
