The intermediate rider is able to mount and dismount their horse unassisted, use basic riding aids, ride at a rising trot for at least 10 minutes, to change and control the pace from a walk to a trot and comfortably canter over short distances.



For experienced riders who have mastered all 3 paces (walk, rising trot, canter in a forward seat) over uneven terrain. The experienced rider rides regularly, has a good seat and is confident of their own ability. They are able to control the horse at speed and change direction of their horse at any pace and in any circumstance as needed.



For advanced riders who have mastered all 4paces (walk, rising trot, canter gallop in a forward seat) over uneven terrain on all types of horses including those that are very spirited.

Day 2: MEDULIN - ADRIATIC COAST - VALTURA - 4 hours riding

Accommodation : Agroturizam Marina Valtura

After breakfast, you will be transferred to the ranch, where you will meet your guide Sandra and the horses. Sandra will make sure to assign you a horse that matches your riding ability before you start your riding adventure.
You start off from the ranch, riding through lovely forest tracks and lush meadows. You head towards the sea, riding along the beach with stunning views of the Adriatic. Everywhere, the countryside remains extraordinarily intact. Arriving to a quiet bay, both riders and horses get some rest and a well-deserved picnic right next to the sea.
After lunch, the trail takes you to the traditional Istrian village of Valtura, known for its rich cultural and historical heritage. Sandra will be pleased to share her knowledge of this region with you. You will stay at a local family farm - with a fantastic opportunity to try out the Istrian specialties and desserts!

Day 3: VALTURA - NEZAKCIJ - MANJADVORCI - 3h30 hours riding

Accommodation : Irena Cottage

This morning, you will explore the ancient town of Nezakcij on horseback. Its architecture dates back to the Bronze age. Back then, it was a political and religious centre and the capital of the tribal federation of Histrians. A decisive battle took place here in 177. B.C. between the Romans and the Histrians, after which Nezakcij became a roman military outpost.

You will head to some cool forest tracks before riding through vineyards and olive plantations. On the way to your next destination, Manjadvorci, there should be excellent opportunities for a canter. This is one of those places where you will simultaneously feel the closeness of the sea and the magic of continental Istria. Take a minute to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of your equestrian escape.

After settling in your guesthouse, those who want will be taken to Pula, Istria's largest city, for some sightseeing (optional - if there is time). Pula teems with antique beauties, such as its Roman amphitheatre. Heading back to the cottage, your hosts will prepare a delicious meal accompanied by some Malvasia wine. Good company, good food and good wine make for a very pleasant evening in Istria.

Day 4 : MANJADVORCI - RASA BAY - GOLOGORICKI DOL - 6 hrs 30 riding

Accommodation : Agroturizam Dol

After breakfast, get ready for a long day in the saddle. You head out looking for one of the best viewpoints of the region with sensational views over Rasa Bay, where the river Rasa flows into the Adriatic. Together with the lime background, this gives the unique turquoise blue colour of the sea. After a short break, your trail takes you back to the valley, where you will ride along the river's bank until you reach the perfect picnic spot.

After your meal, you will ride along the river valley, surrounded by some impressive canyons before you arrive in the mountainous area of Istria. In the valley, among the beautiful hills of Istria, you will find Gologorički dol, a place of authentic Istrian agronomic tourism, where the hosts grow their own fresh products for the dishes they offer. Make sure to save some space for dessert: the delicious “fritula”, the sweet-smelling “cukerancic” , and a special little beverage named “pasareta”.

Overnight at the Agriturismo.

Day 5: GOLOGORICKI DOL - BERMA - SV PETAR U SUM - 5 hrs 30 riding

Accommodation : Agroturizam Dol

After breakfast, you set off on horseback to explore the estate. A clear spring flows through it, creating a natural waterfall with water descending into a clear pond. Animal lovers will be delighted to see geese and ducks enjoying the clear waters!
Your ride takes you uphill, offering thrilling views over the neighbouring hills and villages. Riding along the hill you reach Berma, a place known for its chapel with rich medieval frescoes and St. Martin's church. Dine in a local tavern, then ride to Sv. Petar u Šumi, your home for the night. At the end of the day, those who wish can also visit the impressive St. Peter and Paul Church, dating all the way back to 1755.

Day 6: SV PETAR U SUMI - KAZUN HOUSE - STANCIJ - 5 hrs 30 riding

Accommodation : House Bozac

You are now riding across the central part of Istria, where you should start noticing typical little Istrian houses, called “Kazun”. They are round-shaped, built with dry-stone walls using local stones, without any binding material or windows. These houses were initially built as tool sheds and shelters for shepherds during storms.

Take a short break at the restored Istrian “stancij” (resting spot). Riding along the hundred-year-old olive gardens, you will reach another traditional farm where you will be able to taste sheep cheese and home-made cottage cheese before settling in for the night.

Day 7: STANCIJ - MEDULIN - 4 hours riding

After a hearty breakfast, it's time to tack up the horses one last time. You head back to the ranch in Medulin, galloping through the green meadows and protected forest of the Park. It is as beautiful in the spring, when the ground is covered with cyclamen, as in the autumn, when various mushroom caps stick out of the carpet of fallen leaves. Revel in their natural habitat, but do not pick anything! All the flora and fauna in this forest is protected - the only things you are allowed to bring back home are the fond memories of these natural beauties.

Upon arrival at the ranch and unsaddling, have a late lunch before returning to the hotel for dinner and your last night in Istria.

HEALTH

If you're visiting Croatia you should get a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before leaving the UK. The EHIC isn't a substitute for medical and travel insurance, but it entitles you to state provided medical treatment that may become necessary during your trip. Any treatment provided is on the same terms as Croatian nationals. If you don't have your EHIC with you or you've lost it, you can call the Department of Health Overseas Healthcare Team (+44 191 218 1999) to get a Provisional Replacement Certificate. The EHIC won't cover medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment, so you should make sure you have adequate travel insurance and accessible funds to cover the cost of any medical treatment and repatriation.

If you need emergency medical assistance during your trip, dial 112 and ask for an ambulance. You should contact your insurance/medical assistance company promptly if you are referred to a medical facility for treatment.
