“Thoroughly enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Wonderful trip. Taken by coach from Porec, Croatia. Horses are wonderful. You are treated to a show and have a guided tour of the stables and visitor centre. Only complaint is that there was insufficient time to do the visitor centre justice as there is a lot of information there. Could do with all day really.

“beautiful horses , shame about everythingelse.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

When you visit here out of season be aware if you want to see the message show ,GO ON A SUNDAY. We went on a Tuesday and no show only a one hour guided tour of the stables and a very brief look at the new foals, neither was there enough time to dwell in the museum nor were you able to watch a young horse being trained. Not worth the 12 euros entrance fee.

This was one of the most disappointing trips I have ever done. This was to be the highlight of our holiday in Slovenia & Croatia. If you want to see the dressage demonstration in April or out of season, MAKE SURE YOU GO ON SUNDAY

The tour is poor, herded round without time to dwell at the museum, the new foals or see horses being trained. Very disappointing.
The horses themselves were magnificent but it wasn't enough.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We took a guided tour and walked around the premises. Very informative and interesting as the guide was very knowledgeable. In the end we walked down to the outdoor arena and watched the horse carriage track competition. Lovely surroundings.

“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I had seen a Royal Lipizzaner show in Canada, but to see where those horses are bred and raised was extraordinary. The acres of the Lipica Stud Farm are beautiful. The guided tour was really interesting and since we were there off-season, we had a private tour. The new museum is really well made. A treat!
