We had hoped and planned to go to Lipica and the home of the Lipizzaner horses, stunning large white horses (they are actually born black and turn white). But the weather was bad and we there on the wrong days to ride them.
However, it turned out that there was a horse rehabilitation center right by Kaja’s house, so we headed there and took a look around. I was allowed to sit on a horse as they took it round the paddock, unfortunately none of the horses are completely rideable due to past abuse and health concerns. But my beautiful mount was incredible, and it turned out to be a huge Lipizzaner, so I got to right one after all.
Here is a link to a wonderful article, written by Kaja, with some beautiful photos:
