This ride is based at an impressive historic Polish palace estate which consists of a renewed 16th century palace, a 19th century historic complex of farm buildings with a restaurant and superb stables and 300 hectares of scenic land. The place is surrounded by forests, fields and pastures, which all create the opportunity for extremely interesting trail riding. Horses are at the heart of the estate. Nearly 70 horses are kept in the historic stables and beautiful landscapes of the property which offer the perfect conditions for a riding school. The stud farm breeds sport horses of Holstein, Westphalian and Polish Half Bred Horses breed.
The stud farm has different riding programmes available for guests. During the high season (May – August) guests can enjoy a 4-day or 7-day trail riding programme, which is for advanced riders only. Every trail is about 30 kilometres long and lasts in approximately 6 hours (including the time for a lunch and a short break). Every day you’ll take a different route, through forests and meadows and to lots of picturesque villages (such as Sulowo, Krawczyki and Wegoryty) and the 17th century sanctuary in Stoczek Klasztorny.
All year round there is a flexible riding programme available for all levels, which includes six (weekend stay) or twelve (week stay) riding sessions to use in whatever way guests prefer. The riding sessions can be used for flatwork riding, lunge lessons, jumping lessons or country side riding (weather-dependant). For those who would like to focus on jumping lessons only, there is a specific jumping programme. Here you have the choice between a regular jumping programme (up to 60 centimetres) or the advanced one (up to 100 centimetres).
The estate offers an idyllic, authentic and comfortable setting for your holiday, in harmony with time and nature. There are 36 rooms available for guests, all decorated in a way that emphasises the unique atmosphere of the historic buildings. One of the estate’s greatest assets is its excellent cuisine: modern, but taking into account the typical culinary traditions of the region. The chef uses vegetables, fruits and herbs from the garden alongside locally-produced cheeses, meats and homemade preserves. This is definitely not the place to go hungry!
The property has an attractive selection of non-riding activities and sports available, which makes it an excellent location for mixed groups. The options include horse-drawn carriage rides, playing tennis on one of the two tennis courts, relaxing in the historic English-style park, taking a swim in the pond or cycling around the pastures. A very popular amenity at the estate is the Russian wood-fired banya (sauna), built of logs and natural stone. It’s a fantastic way to relax after a day in the saddle!
