  • We train riders and horses!

  • We combine the training in horse riding skills with the pleasure of riding in the nature.

  • We organize trail riding tours in Rila Mountain and the surrounding area with different levels of difficulty and duration.

  • Our well trained horses take part in team building and coaching programs.

Vasil Stoychev (Vasko Butch) – owner and horse riding instructor

I love animals and nature. I grew up with horses. I know their nature and their character. Taking care of them is an indivisible part of my life. I have been on the saddle since I was a child and I know that when you are one with the horse, horse riding turns into an unique experience. That’s why I give my experience with pleasure to everyone who wants to learn to ride a horse and to communicate with horses.

Ognyan Stoychev (Oggy Butch) – owner and horse riding instructor

I am a descendant of an old, famous horsemen family. I work with horses since I remember myself. I founded one of the first firms for horse-riding tourism as far back as 1992. This is a business which requires much responsibility and love to horses. I am devoted to my work and this makes me happy.

Emil Penev (Saperata) – horse riding instructor

I grew up in the nature of Rila Mountains. I have been a member of the team of  “Horse Riding With Butch” since 2002. My love to horses, freedom and challenges led me here. Working with children and beginners is my calling. And the horse riding tours and picnics are my best!

Communication with horses turned out to be the shortest way to myself.
