Want to get away from the havoc of the city and immerse yourself in nature? . Horseback riding is one of those experiences that evokes positive emotions and creates lasting memories. So, let’s saddle up and let the riding adventure begin. Around our ranch we ride over the hills and in valleys, the trails offer wonderful views of pastoral vistas, fortified town Sighnaghi, Alazani Valley and the Caucasus Mountains. Scenic rural villages, tiny centuries-old churches and the famous holy site of the Bodbe Covent are some of the other highlights. We have calm, well trained Caucasian horses and the tours are accompanied by professional local guides, and are suitable for riders of all levels. There’s always heartful food from our tasty kitchen, cooked with ingredients sourced from our own permaculture gardens, and afterwards you can rest in our stylish & comfortable rooms for an overnight stay, and enjoy a glass or two of refreshing craft beer from our Svia Brewery & vibrant natural wines from Pheasant’s Tears Winery.
Along with shorter excursions from 1 to 4 hours in the scenic valleys and hills adjacent to the ranch, we offer tailor-made multiple day equestrian experiences through various ecosystems in different regions, everywhere from arid semi-desserts to subtropical lowlands and alpine highlands of Georgia.
