I was born in Albania and now am a journalist with a unique background in history and archaeology. My deep affinity for horses goes beyond a mere interest, it is a lifelong passion that has become a driving force in my endeavors. Recognizing the potential of Albania`s cultural and natural treasures, I have committed myself to building some of the finest horse holidays in the country. My vision extends beyond tourism, emphasizing the importance of partnerships with horses, the preservation of nature, and support for local communities. I believe a horse represents more than a companion on the trails it symbolizes a partnership rooted in mutual respect and understanding. I stand at the intersection of passion, profession, and purpose, weaving together a narrative that celebrates the rich tapestry of Albania`s history, culture, and natural beauty while championing the symbiotic relationship between humans and horses. My story is one of dedication to sustainable practices, community empowerment, and the enduring connection between people, horses, and the environment.

    My 14-year-old daughter and I embarked on the one-week Zagoria trail in November. It was a week filled with joy as we cherished every minute, thanks to the breathtaking views, reliable and sturdy horses, delightful cuisine, and hospitable families we stayed with. Most importantly, I truly valued the friendly approach towards the youngest rider in our group, my daughter. Thanks to the Caravan Horse Riding Albania team's kindness and professionalism, it became an unforgettable experience.

    There are no words sufficient to express how truly amazing this trail was! It held great significance for me to embark on this journey solo. Filled with warmth, sharing (and raki), it provided the perfect avenue to explore Albania and its people. Thank you, Kristina, for being such an inspiring woman. Your attention to detail and care resonates deeply with me and will stay with me always. Your team's exceptional work extends beyond just horses; it encompasses the rich culture of your country and its people. Many thanks for sharing that with us. (They even surprised me with a birthday cake 🤩🤩) I returned home with countless memories and newfound friends. FALEMINDERIT!
