Old Mulberry - Croatia

Experience Level

Flexible Programme

5 star rating   16 August 2019

There was plenty of variety in the riding, several long canters and at least one fantastic flat out gallop each day, broken up with beautiful walks through trails and forest. The tack was comfortable and safe, and the horses' well being was clearly cared for. Every horse was well trained and solid both on the ground and while riding, but with enough variety in equine personalities and styles that everyone in our group found a horse that they "fell in love" with.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Accommodations are basic but clean and comfortable. The food and drink is local and typical for the region (stews, cabbage and potatoes, meat), with a large meal and midday and lighter meal at supper. Beer, wine and schnapps flow freely!

Misha provides some of the best hospitality that I've ever had on a ride. He is always available to make sure everyone is comfortable, and even helped smooth over some challenges we were having in our further Croatia travels. What a gem!

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

I know the instructions said to provide our own toiletries but I would recommend stating clearly that you should travel with your own soap for the sink and shower so it is very clear, because that is very uncommon 🙂

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

Everything was fantastic as usual. We continue to book through ITS exactly because of your fantastic service and well-selected rides.
