Had a fantastic time. Beautiful countryside, strong, healthy horses. Great host and guide. Highly recommend! Favourite memory? The last day's trail to the top of the mountain and BBQ lunch. Also, really liked the mix of horseback riding and site-seeing the local caves, castles, cities and Lippizan horse farm.

In spite of some very rainy weather, we thoroughly enjoyed riding in the Karst region of Slovenia and staying at Prozar tourist farm. One day it rained and hailed with thunder and lightning and we got drenched, but at least we were still able to ride. The forests and valleys were beautiful, and the horses, accommodations, and food were wonderful.

Absolutely fantastic, I already can’t wait to go back! Amazing horses who were loved like family and in beautiful condition. The scenery was incredibly diverse, going through a lot of forest as well as stunning mountain ranges. We also had a lot of laughs with the team - such warm hosts and entertaining company!

I thoroughly enjoyed this ride for lots of reasons. The horses are exceptional - very well cared for and keen to go but relaxed and well schooled too. The scenery is beautiful and varied. I particularly enjoyed the way Borut introduced us to some of his friends along the way. We met some very friendly, kind and interesting people and of course this also provided a special insight to their country. Seeing Predjama Castle was also a highlight - it is absolutely beautiful - but so was the general scenery - mountains, lakes, forests etc.

Wonderful experience in every way. Beautiful countryside with autumn colours, lovely responsive horses and superb hosts. Couldn't fault it. Favourite memory? The views from the top of the mountain in glorious sunshine. Food & Accommodation? Spotless rooms, great food and Marco is the nicest, most helpful host you could wish for. Horses? The horses are so well cared for and responsive. Western saddles are the best for steep rides. All in all - perfect. In such a difficult time, with Covid regulations changing all the time, we were kept up to date.

I just wanted to let you know I had an amazing time in Slovenia! The hosts Borut and his wife were very friendly and had lots of interesting stories about the area as well as providing us with super horses. We rode out with Megi one of the guides who was also lovely and great to chat to. The accommodation was nice with good food and the owners were very helpful throughout the stay. The trip was such a fab way to explore Slovenia along with the company of the other riders. Thanks again for helping me choose a great holiday!

A perfect short trip. One easily able to fit within a week. Can't think of much that would improve the holiday: it was very good on time, cost, horses, guide, accommodation and food.

Slovenia is absolutely wonderful with fantastic scenery and very friendly people. Horses were really good and very responsive. Guide friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable.

Can't get over how stunning the country is, I'm so glad I went in autumn not spring- the colours of the trees on the hills was fantastic. Borut is such a funny guy and the guide Megi is lovely. I rode Vita, fell completely in love with her - to be honest when Megi said I had this speedy, sensitive, red mare I was a bit concerned but she was a delight to ride - impeccably trained and definitely had 6 gears in canter- had a race with Megi at one point to try out 6th gear!! Gave me such a confidence boost :) And I don't know many horses who wouldn't bat an eyelid with shotguns going off in their vicinity (we went past a gun range)- and Borut said he had shot from her back before. Such a sassy mare too, couldn't help but laugh at some of the 'mare faces' she pulled. No bears or wolves but did see red deer every day riding out :) Definitely one of my favourite trips!

Accommodation was as advertised. The horses were fit and well cared for. The countryside was good for riding. It gave a taste of Slovenia with a lot of riding too. Our guide knew the terrain well and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our holiday.

The trip was fantastic - it's hard to find the word to describe the breathtaking views of such an untouched and unspoilt country. It is a place of natural beauty. Favourite memory? Too many to note, but riding up the mountain and seeing a 360 view of the magnificent scenery. Horses? The horses were very well looked after and the tack was very good. In comparison to other riding trips these were by far the best horses we have seen. Guide? Legend! Borut has a wicked sense of humour and made the trip very enjoyable. He is a fountain of knowledge about Slovenia and went above and beyond to ensure we had a 5* experience. His wife is super accommodating too - couldn't have asked for better hosts.

Superb - even better than I could have hoped for. Beautiful country, lovely people and wonderful horses. Favourite memory? The fantastic views from the top of the mountains on our third day ride (and all the "shots" before and after riding!!). Horses? The horses were very well cared for and obviously loved. The tack was in good condition. Guide? Borut was lovely. Friendly and informative with a really dry sense of humour and excellent English - the perfect host.
Lauren & Elinor, Oct. 6, 2018
We had the most awesome fun time on our trail ride in Slovenia with Borut! From start to finish it was amazing! Borut was the best guide ever, we had so many laughs and many schnapps too :) What an adventure, horses were fantastic, well looked after, tack excellent and temperaments perfectly suited to us. Thank you so much for all your help in organizing this lifetime memorable trip.

Wonderful - right mix of riding and sight-seeing. If not on a point-to-point trail and staying for a week, it is nice to have a couple of half days riding and a day off and gives a chance to take in the local history and generally absorb the country. (Favourite memory?) Got lots - but think will always remember the abundance of fruit trees and the hilarity of stopping off to try and pick from horseback - apples, pears and plums - the plums were out of this world. Also the bear watching was amazing! Will certainly remember the hilarity throughout our time there between us, the other guest and the guides!
Paula M., Sept. 28, 2018
Excellent, I could not fault anything. It was the right mixture of riding and sightseeing. (Favourite memory?) I think seeing the 9 bears feeding in the cleaning when we went bear watching for the evening and also seeing the bear on the track in front of us on one of the rides. It is hard to pick out a single favourite memory as the whole holiday was amazing, from the accommodation, horses, scenery, weather, trips, food, and of course Borut and Ourus and their families were brilliant. (Improvements?) Nothing. Not sure that it would be possible to improve on an already excellent, well run holiday - nothing was too much trouble and the whole experience was of a very high standard.

I am back from the horse trail in Slovenia and I would like to confirm to you that everything went perfectly fine and I had a fantastic time. Borut took care of every single aspect of the trail with great professionality and passion and all the people were kind and dedicated. Not only the ride was great and the horses beautiful and well treated but also the opportunity to enjoy the additional activities such as bear watching, visit of the coast in Istria and the caves and castles were just amazing.
In few words it has been a great holiday organised by wonderful people.

The horses were fabulous, strong, fit, sure-footed, characterful and well-cared for. We covered all types of terrain, narrow paths through forests, open countryside with beautiful views, steep climbs and descents, tracks where we could give the horses their heads for exhilarating canters. Sight-seeing was interesting and enjoyable, particularly Lipica and Piran, and the friendliness and hospitality of everyone we met was heart-warming.
