  • Description

    Description

    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 explore and enjoy the natural beauties of countryside.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We offer accommodation, food, learning new skills and being a part of our cheerful team. You can visit National park Plitvice Lakes, and historical Barac's caves, Old Town Dreznik, river roads of River Korana, waterfall Rastoke, and enjoy natural pure, clean water from forest spring. We are in the middle of cycling roads.

    Once we are up and running we will offer paid positions, but due to the fact we are currently still preparing the ranch and working up to tourist season we are not offering monetary payment as volunteers will not be responsible for helping run any aspect of the business, for these business related tasks we have one local paid employee.
