Already at the age of 6 I went with my sister on horseback to visit my aunt who was away one day riding in one direction. That experience is something indescribable that stuck in my memory. A couple of years ago, I obtained a license from the Swiss Academy for long-distance riding and I have been organizing horseback riding in Serbia for more than 8 years. I have always been fascinated by nature, animals, human being, the mystique of the untouchable and the goal of our existence … I want to guide you through remote parts of the Dinaric Alps and Sumadija and get closer to nature and animals in a special way … With more than 20 years of tourism experience and human health through exercise, riding and my own experience riding with us reaches a special level in which we become one team enjoying the beautiful landscapes of this part of the Balkan. I am father of five children and my son Matej has been riding the whole trail since he was 8 years old. I organize the tour, equipment, horses, know how, tour guide in English and German.

    about provider
    The resort offers a highly varied riding program, with great gallops on the plateaus. The horses are always well taken care of, but some passages can be steep, making it exhausting for both horses and riders. However, the amazing riding guides made the experience worthwhile, ensuring that all our wishes were addressed with care and attention. The accommodation is simple, clean, and comfortable.

    The food at the resort is exceptional, with great quality and quantity. The private accommodations, which offer home-grown meals, are especially delightful. The hilly landscape of the resort, reaching up to 1300m, is beautiful, offering both open and wooded areas to explore. The crystal-clear water, with drinking water quality, is another highlight of the resort.
