Description of the Programme

Trail riding across the Lipica estate and the nearby Karst is a nice way to relax, and an unforgettable experience. Our guides take experienced riders on Karst horses (Lipizzan horses) at a leisurely pace across parts of the Lipica estate and the Karst which visitors to Lipica don’t usually get to see.

Riders go along Lipica’s most beautiful avenues and past pastures where only Lipizzan horses have been grazing for centuries, as well as through hidden forested areas of the Karst Living Museum, a colourful karst landscape that reveals various karst features and phenomena every step of the way.

arrow General Conditions
  • Please report to the entrance of the Lipica Stud Farm at least 15 minutes before the start of your ride.
  • Please notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you will not be able to ride on the agreed date.
  • Participants may weigh a maximum of 90 kilograms and be no more than 180 centimetres tall.
  • The minimum age of participants of the riding programme is 15 years.
  • The riding and the preparation of the horse before, during, and after riding are at your own risk. Persons under the age of 18 are the responsibility of their parent or guardian.
  • Wearing a helmet is mandatory throughout the programme.
  • A back protector is required for persons under the age of 18.
  • To make sure that the trail ride is a pleasant and relaxing experience that will keep you coming back for more, every group of riders is led by a Lipica Stud Farm guide, who is responsible for choosing the route, setting the riding pace, and ensuring the safety of the whole group.
  • The trail riding programme is suitable and attractive especially for riders who have already mastered the basics of riding and know how to lead a horse independently.
  • Before the trail ride, the guide will examine each rider’s knowledge in the riding arena. This is to ensure the safety and well-being of the whole group.
  • For highly experienced trail riders, the Lipica Stud Farm offers whole-day or even multi-day trail rides, because in our experience, there is nothing better than to discover Lipica and the Karst in the saddle of a Lipizzan horse.
