The Kaja and Grom Ranch on Rogla

Previous Next

On a somewhat isolated, but nevertheless easily accessible clearing by a spruce tree forest, you will find the authentic Pohorje Pesek Hut and an adorable small stable.
Mrs. Darja and Mr. Andrej from the Kaja and Grom Ranch have literally taken the stable into their own hands and restored it into a friendly and warm home for their Lipizzaner and people in love with nature.
Which activities await you at the ranch?
All programmes are carried out under the supervision of guides with a lot of experience in working with children and horses.

Programmes for individual visitors:

Toddlers between 1 and 3 years of age:


THE GENTLE CARESS OF A LIPIZZANER
The toddler slowly bonds with the large animal, caressing its soft hair and tries to gently groom it. As each child feels differently around the animal, they are only introduced to the horse as much as they are comfortable with.
DURATION: 15 minutes
SCHEDULE: daily from 10 AM to noon and from 3 PM to 7 PM
PRICE: EUR 10/child
GOOD TO KNOW: The programme shall be carried out in bad weather too.

Children between 3 and 7 years of age:


THE LIPIZZANER, MY FRIEND
You will become familiar with the horse like never before! Did you know how horses speak? And see and hear? You will cuddle with the horse and learn how to approach it so that a bond can be immediately forged. After that, we shall take a walk together and do one lap on the horse around the track.
DURATION: 15 minutes
SCHEDULE: daily from 10 AM to noon and from 2 PM to 5 PM
PRICE: EUR 10/child
GOOD TO KNOW: This programme shall not be carried out in rainy weather and in extremely cold conditions.

WHO ARE HORSES?
We will discuss horses in a different way (the discussion will be adapted to the age of the audience). We will not only learn how to approach a horse in general, but also discuss it in the light of psychology of a horse. We will get to hang out with an actual horse, become familiar with it and learn how to properly take care of it. To finish off, we will do something that Lipizzaner love the most: to be caressed or, in human language, groomed. Tip: this programme is appropriate for adults as well!
DURATION: 30 minutes
SCHEDULE: daily from 10 AM to noon and from 3 PM to 7 PM
PRICE: EUR 15 per person
GOOD TO KNOW: The programme shall be carried out in bad weather too.

SKIJORING
Put on your skis, attach yourself to the horse and enjoy being pulled by it in our fenced area at Pesek. In order to adjust to the level of stability on your skis, you will get to do 2 laps. This programme is also available for children of less than 6 years of age but only under their parents' supervision.
DURATION: 15 minutes
SCHEDULE: daily from 11 PM to 2 PM or, upon prior arrangement, for groups of min. 3 people
PRICE: EUR 15 per person
GOOD TO KNOW: The programme shall be carried out when it snows too.

DURATION: 2-3 hours
VENUE: in a heated area close to our four-legged friends

Family programmes:

OUR FOUR-LEGGED FRIEND
One of the most beautiful gifts that you can give your children is to hang out with the mysterious Lipizzaner in the heart of nature in the company of your children of minimum 3 years of age. Become familiar with the world of a horse, learn how to bond with it, caress it along its mane, groom it and continue your ministrations along its tail ... like a true professional. If you wish, you can also clean its hooves together. :)
DURATION: 50 minutes
PRICE: EUR 50 per family
GOOD TO KNOW: The programme shall be carried out in bad weather too.

EXPERIENCE THE TOUCH OF NATURE
Bring your children of minimum 3 years of age, enter the woods and experience your surroundings. While people have 5 senses, it is known that trees have as many as 700. Trees are healing and sensitive plants that communicate with each other. Did you know how forest silence sounds like? Or if it gets to be disturbed by a single trickling stream or the murmuring grasses of the Pohorje plains?
This programme varies and is adapted to Mother Nature on a weekly basis. :)
DURATION: 45 to 60 minutes
SCHEDULE: daily from 10 AM to noon and from 3 PM to 7 PM
PRICE: EUR 50 per family
GOOD TO KNOW: The programme shall be carried out when it snows too.
