Small can be beautiful when it comes to riding experiences. A small country (Slovenia) and a small hotel (Pristava Lepena) can add up to a lovely equestrian vacation, since the country in question has green slopes and blue rivers and the hotel – located in Slovenia’s Triglav National Park -- consists of wood-punctuated cottages with rustic charm.

Most importantly, the horses at Pristava Lepena are pure white Lipizzaner, suitable for beginners (lessons are available for children and adults) but intelligent and willing mounts for more experienced riders. Lessons include insights into the character and habits of the Lipizzaner, as well as grooming and saddling practices. Room, board, and riding packages are priced separately; for example, a 50-minute trail ride (experienced riders only) costs from 20 euro; a 10-hour trail riding package with guide is from 170 euro.

Non-riders can go rafting, hiking, fly fishing or mountain biking. The facility opens for business in late April. 

Claudia recommends Pristava Lepena.
