Further Education Equine students recently visited Croatia to stay and ride at a ranch in Valika Plana!

They rode in the mountains across rocky terrain and some very steep hills with beautiful scenery in the mountains of Velika Plana national park. The trip also included a visit to Plitvice Lakes and the town of Zadar, as well as a hike to the Valebit caves which are steeped in history and had the chance to swim in a waterfall.

There were also educational talks on how to ground school your horse, and trim and care for your horses feet as well as other useful information about how to groom and care for your horse.
