We are in process of building (constructing) a horse center in the middle of the countryside (beautiful landscape), surrounded by forest and pure nature, located only 3km from historical landmark Barac's caves and 15km from Croatian National park Plitvice Lakes. Currently we're working on the house with pool (mountain house appearance), garden and horse stable. For now we have 4 horses on the property, 4 dogs, 4 cats, 10 sheep, and 15 chickens who all need caring for. We also have a carriage for horse driving. We are planning to eventually have more horses, Scottish cow's, donkeys... and some more animals. You will have the opportunity to drive in carriage and ride in beautiful nature.
