HORSE RIDING IN THE EMBRACE OF PRIVATE NATURE
The Blato estate is located in the pristine Soča valley, in the village of Žaga, only 10 kilometers from Bovec. The idyllic peaceful environment near the Soča river, horse riding is the perfect combination of relaxation and getting to know the Soča Valley at the same time.
They have 5 horses on the property, 4 of which are large and a Welsh pony that can carry a person up to 60 kg. Off-road riding and children’s pony rides are available too.
If you are going on vacation to the Soča Valley, the Blato Estate offers you a wonderful experience – a horseback riding by the emerald Soča!
Off-road riding includes:
DURATION: the whole activity takes about an hour and a half.
SUITABLE: both for beginners, as in their case the horses are led on a leash for greater safety. It is also suitable for experienced riders, with whom we also stop in the outdoor arena, where they can trot and gallop, as the field is exclusively for walking.
MEET YOUR GUIDE
Greta Štor from Vipava started riding at the age of 7. At that time, under the guidance of Kristina Naglost, she learned all the basics of classical riding and later became interested in jumping over obstacles. Under the watchful eye of Barbara Koron, she made progress and joined the Kras Sežana Equestrian Club during high school. She passed the competition license exam and there followed a period of successful competition seasons in showjumping with horses, under the auspices of Zoran Zečević. At the end of high school, her desire for equestrian knowledge only grew, and during her studies in Koper, she passed an exam that earned her the title of riding instructor.
Her love took her to the mountains, and now at Žaga near Bovec, she strives to transfer her knowledge of equestrianism to everyone who wants to learn the basics of riding and to offer tourists the opportunity to see the beautiful landscape of the Soča Valley on horseback.
Horse riding is one of those sports that we all dreamed of as children. Years ago, there were not so many opportunities to tackle it or get to know it at all, but today the possibilities are almost limitless.
With views of the Soča valley and the Julian Alps, riding will also relax you or even inspire you.
