Koprivshtitsa Ride (Sredna Gora), 4 days, experienced riders 390 , 4 Days

Koprivshtitsa is one of Bulgaria most charming towns, still preserving the atmosphere of the Bulgarian National Revival period of the 19th century. The town is huddled in Sredna Gora Mountains, about 110 km east of Sofia.
The terrain here is perfect for riding. There are no gates to open and you are not restricted to bridle paths or tarmac roads - instead there are seemingly endless meadows, forest tracks, mountain rides and beautiful open land to explore.

The rolling hills of Sredna Gora offer excellent possibilities for long canters, before winding your way through shady forests of beech and oak.
Spirited Arab horses, fast riding and the delights of rural Bulgaria are the highlights of this tour..

The horses are pure Arabians and Shagya Arabs.
You should be a confident rider in control of your horse at walk, trot and canter.
