Poland, Lobez - Trail Ride on a Country Estate

Outside Lobez is this large country property consisting of a manor house, stables, a small indoor arena and 1,000 hectares (2,500 acres) of land. The food served is very tasty and based on organically grown vegetables and meat, including the estate’s home bred duck. Fish from the Estate’s own lake are also served. During the week you stay at the nicely renovated manor house.

Most horses are Anglo Arabs and reared on the farm. They have a very good life and go out into the big lush pastures every day. They have good stamina are and in good condition allowing for a fast-paced ride with many long gallops. You will have the chance to do a lot of riding (3-6 hours / day). On a few of the days, the rides will start at the farm and on others you will leave the horses in stables and you be driven back to the estate. The ride goes over large, rolling hills, along good forest roads and to the region's largest lake. You will also visit a trotting stud farm, the former state-owned stud Lobez. After a nice long ride and a good dinner, it is cozy to sit by the fire and sample the homemade liqueurs.

Program, Week & Short Week

Preliminary day-by-day program, week

Day 1 - Arrival. You arrive at the riding center in the afternoon or early evening and welcomed by your hostess.

Day 2 - After an initial trial ride in the paddock, following afternoon you take a first ride in the surrounding area. The vast hilly landscape offers great opportunities for fast and long canters. You ride through the peat bog of Karsibor and admire the magnificent 400 years old oak trees in the forest. In the evening you enjoy cosy crackling fire or relax on the terrace under the chestnut trees overlooking our 200-year old, beautiful park.

Day 3 - : Riding across meadows and through forests we enjoy the slightly hilly and wide landscape of Pomerania. We visit a neighboring farm on a secluded lake, where we relax with a picnic together and a siesta afterwards. After our return and a sumptuous dinner, we take a horse-drawn carriage to the nearby old manor house by the lake and let our eyes wander over the infinitely wide, lush green meadows while the horses trot leisurely in the setting evening sun.

Day 4: We ride through the unique natural paradise of the Dramburg Lake District, through beautiful, lonely forests and along clear, enchanted lakes. When the weather is nice, extensive bathing breaks are planned for horse and rider. Before or after dinner, you can choose between a sauna or a swim in the lake.

Day 5: Today's ride takes us through a beautiful, gently rolling landscape to a stately manor from the 19th century, where we are expected for lunch. After the lunch break we visit the manor with its old oak park by the lake. The spacious surroundings of the farm again offer us many opportunities for space-consuming gallops. Through an old avenue we come back to our estate, where dinner is already waiting for us. Afterwards there are opportunities for invigorating sauna sessions in the lakeside sauna, a relaxing massage (for a fee) or a refreshing swim in the lake.

Day 6: Today we start our 2-day trail: The ride leads through small, sleepy villages, across wide meadows and through sparse forests to a horse training facility near an old manor house. We leave the horses in the stables and enjoy a picnic in the courtyard garden. The horses spend the night here tonight while we return to our estate (approx. 20-30 min transfer). In the evening, if desired, the idyllically situated sauna on the shore of the farm's own lake can be heated up again and we can have a long sauna session.

Day 7: We drive to our horses and visit a beautiful training facility for Belgian and French trotters on the way. Before the war, the facility served as a training track for the Berlin racetrack. After sightseeing we ride back through quiet, sleepy Pomeranian villages. For a last evening we drive to a Polish wine producer, here we enjoy the delicious local wines and specialties of the Pomeranian cuisine.

Day 8 - Breakfast and then departure.
