Briefly about Ranch Aurora

RanchAurora is located 50 km from the capital of Sofia in the heart of Stara Planina - Old Mountain, in a very clean and beautiful area of Bulgaria. Near the ranch are the Skaklya waterfall, the Ivan Vazov eco trail, restaurants and incredible panoramic views. The ranch offers time spent surrounded by rich nature, riding lessons for beginners and advanced, trips, spaces for events, possibility of catering with full and professional attention to each guest. The project for the ranch started as a sincere love for the noble animal – the horse, for freedom and for health. Subsequently, this love had to be shared and the horse stables opened its doors first in the town of Svoge. After proving itself as a name, concept and professionalism, the ranch found its perfect place in the village of Zasele, near the town of Svoge. A place where it can expand to 30 acres of land and offer its customers much more. Since then we have been a preferred destination for everyone who shares this love. The ranch has a stable with modern stalls, a rectangular and round arenas for training horses and riders, changing rooms and sanitary facilities, with a training track with a variety of exercises and obstacles to prepare for riding in nature, a place to relax and eat next to our favorite pond and numerous routes starting from the ranch to unique places in the area.

We currently have 12 horses, with the possibility of organizing trips with larger groups of up to 15 horses, thanks to partnerships with local stables. We train our horses using the Polkan system, which brings together time-proven best practices, skills and knowledge in the field of horse and human training. We achieve healthy partnerships with the noble animals within which both rider and horse are satisfied and happy.

We are ready to answer your questions or meet you on site.


We have suitable programs for everyone, from beginners to expert riders, both in the arena and in nature.
