Balkan Rides - Bulgaria

The Devetaki Plateau

5 star rating   14 September 2019

Nina who has been on 9 In The Saddle rides. Absolutely amazing riding! | The riding exceeded my expectations. This is the best trail ride I've ever done.
The horses are perfectly trained and all the riders loved their horses. They are very forward going and extremely responsive.
The pace of the riding is excellent. Lots of lovely long canters and often there is lots of space, you dont need to canter nose to tail. You pick your own line in the fields.
The western style of riding is awesome as you never get tired, it's so comfy.
The scenery is stunning! It changes everyday from pine forests to sunflower and corn fields to mountain views, then pretty villages.
The family that looks after you all week are some of the most wonderful people I've ever met. I felt like i was part of the family while I was there. Super friendly and caring.

The accommodation exceeded my expectations. They choose some amazing places for you to sleep. I didnt want to leave any of them! The food is great too, plenty of it! I got to try lots of the traditional Bulgarian dishes and the Rakia.

Just to say again, this was a truly fantastic holiday with wonderful horses and people. I was blown away by the scenery and the pace of riding was perfect! I do like a lot of canters.
I will be back again to do the ride in southern Bulgaria.
I cannot say enough about how fantastic this ride was. I've done 9 riding holidays now and this was in the top 2 for sure!
