The stud farm
Every morning hundreds of white Lipizzan horses gallop right past you. A must see, as it is an unforgettable experience! On site there is a lot to see and do. First of all there is a carriage and culinary museum. Take a carriage ride on the 300 hectares of green. Enjoy a guided walk among 300 Lipizzan horses. For those who love dressage, lessons are offered. But, also for the unsure ones, a lesson will be very helpful, before you ride out into the karst. Pony riding is offered for the younger ones.
The green Lipica estate now offers electric bicycles. For this reason, this trip is also nice for the accompanying non-rider, as you can meet up at most of the sights. Equestrian sport events can be experienced throughout the year. For instance, the Picnic Festival with its relaxed atmosphere, is a great experience for young and old.
