Carriage Ride

Long before horses were ridden for the first time in prehistoric times, man harnessed them for help with outdoor work. The invention of the carriage was extremely useful in other areas as well, because it allowed people to travel great distances quickly, while transporting larger amounts of cargo. For many centuries, the carriages of Lipica drove between Trieste and Vienna, travelling the entire journey in just three days.

arrow More about the carriage ride
The carriages in Lipica were used to drive kings and queens, distinguished guests, and foreign diplomats. Today, this magical adventure is available for all who like horses, nature, and the peaceful stamp of hooves echoing throughout the stud farm. The ride is suitable for all age groups, and our coachmen like to share a secret or two about the Lipica estate during the ride. Carriages for 5 or 7 people are available, and rides where the carriage is drawn by four Lipizzan horses is a special highlight.
Many couples from all over the world have been married in Lipica, and it is a truly remarkable experience for any bride to arrive at her wedding in a Lipica wedding carriage.
