Horseback Riding in Bulgaria

Take a century step back in time and go horseback riding in Bulgaria, in the mountains well away from normal tourist paths.  You will see a rural landscape where horses are still used instead of tractors and peasants work in the fields.  Western Europe must have been like this before the First World War.  The forested mountains are full of wildlife as this is wonderful habitat for deer, mouflons and wild boar.  There are frequent traces of Hellenistic and Roman civilizations, ancient monasteries and one sees the ruins of Byzantine and Ottoman fortresses.  The country is at a crossroads between Europe and Asia giving it a mixture of many cultures over the millennia.  This trip gives excellent value for the cost and is an experience you will not forget.  The trails are ideal for riding and there are chances to move out at all paces.  You will appreciate the delicious local cuisine and taste some excellent wines.
