Overview
The Dervent Heights nature reserve is a unique habitat offering a mix of wild grassland plateaus and heavy tree covered hills and valleys. It's home to numerous protected and rare wildlife species including the Imperial Eagle, Saker Eagle and more. Although sightings of these are relatively rare, we do regularly see hare, deer, and numerous birds and insects.
The reserve is almost completely untouched by humans, and the only people you might meet are the pastoral shepherds and their vast belled herds of sheep and cows.

My family of four - including 2 novices, one of which was incredibly nervous to begin with - went horse riding through the beautiful countryside with Clare and her crew this week. It was awesome. The horses are gentle and the staff have a lovely patient manner and are very competent. We even had a cup of tea in their garden afterward with the doggies, bunnies, kittens, gorgeous Vietnamese pig and the horses. I thoroughly recommend this place.

Absolutely amazing place set in the middle of the beautiful Bulgarian wilderness. Incredible scenery, the atmosphere is so relaxing. So much to do in the area as well! The carriage is beautiful and they even let you take the reins and learn to drive. The riding horses are super well trained, very quiet and so much fun to ride. They also offer archery which is a hit with all ages! Beautiful trails through the hills, the forest and along the river. Forever wouldn’t be long enough to stay!

We are lucky enough to have been to a few times now. We have always wanted to try horse riding but were really nervous. The horses are well kept and are in great condition. Maxine and the staff have been amazing. They are very knowledgeable, profession and above all very patience. We have had some laughs and we now feel confident and comfortable on a horse. Thanks guys The setting is amazing with beautiful views which ever trail you go on. The farm has other animals too. You must see the mini goats they are so funny. The booking system is really user friendly and the reply was really quick. You must try a carriage ride too – that’s was an awesome experience. I wold definitely recommend this place and I can’t wait to go back again

During our last trip to Bulgaria, my son... who is a pure city boy, due to our geographical location, just LOVED riding every day... the place is AMAZING... just nature and animals... great people receiving you! Where can you sit in the garden... cuddling mini goats... being cuddled by a horse who enjoys our company... while the kids are riding safely in the field under supervision and guidance to improve? The horses are amazing... such sweet nature... Safety is always at first... for the well being of the children and the horses... I simply love that place... my son is safe... and I can chill... will for sure go back next summer... and more if and when I can...
