Balkan Horse Riding - Glozhene Monastery Ride

Enjoy a picturesque horse riding tour which will enchant you from your first experience. Suitable for all ages and families. Good and nice way to see the country side and the beautiful Bulgarian mountains on a day trip from Sofia.

The centuries old St. George Monastery is perched on a high rock in the midst of Teteven Balkan overhanging the village of Glozhene. The ride starts from the village of Golyam Izvor, a 1-hour drive from Sofia. The terrain is mountainous, as the trail passes through centuries old beech forests and high pastures. See a splendid panorama view to the central ridge of the Balkan Mountains.

Spend 4-5 hours on the saddle and about an hour visiting the monastery, where you will have lunch. Horses are cross-breeds between the local East-Bulgarian and Karakachan with a mid-height of 150 cm.
