I’ve just returned from the most incredible horse adventure in Bosnia.
Thanks to my wonderful friends Brian and Hanne (Hanne in the above photo) for telling me about these riding holidays you can experience all over the world, I was able to see what one was like for myself. It was an added bonus that Hanne was available to join in Bosnia as well, I can’t imagine the trip without her! There is an agency called Far and Ride that connected Hanne and I to this most amazing farm in Kupres. The Kupres Farm was full of amazing people and they led us on a new adventure every day. I thought I’d do an intro to the farm post since they made the experience so great.
First there is Fred! He’s the farm dog and amazingly smart. He came along on every ride with us, running alongside for hours on end.
Big Marko and little Marko, both excellent horsemen and trail leaders.
Here’s Petra and her favorite horse, Nur. She was very helpful around the farm and was a great trail leader as well.
Following Slaven through the snow covered forrest!
Mate! Owner and such a fun loving rider. Had so much fun racing him and riding through the snow.
There are a few more people from Kupres farm that I don’t have photos of but the farm was filled with excellent people who took great care of us. I’m so appreciative to them and Far and Ride for matching Hanne and I with Kupres Farm for our riding holiday. They cooked hot lunch and dinner for us everyday and always made sure to check that we were satisfied with our experience. We also got incredibly lucky with the weather. The first half of the week was beautiful and sunny. The second half of the week, a storm rolled in and we were riding in the snow! I couldn’t have asked for more. Each day, we rode somewhere new with no fences to hold us back. We rode through historical places and climbed mountains. I have so many photos to share, can’t wait to get them all up. I figured this is a good start :).
Beautiful pictures! I would love learning to ride a horse, I think it is a unique feeling! ^_^
Thank you! You should definitely try it, it’s not like anything else 🙂
