Horse riding

Lithuania has a long and storied relationship with all things equestrian. The horse was a focus of worship in pagan times, and the country even has its own horse breed – the Žemaitukas – a small-stature horse that’s very much like a pony (it was used as a war horse by the Lithuanians in the...
Northern Crusade). And this legacy survives until today, with riding schools and equestrian centres scattered throughout the country. And what better way is there to explore some of the country’s rich and diverse countryside – from forest tracks to meadows to pristine shore – than on horseback? You’ll find there’s guides and instructors for those who are first time in the saddle, while for the more experienced rider, there are horse riding tours available. And there’s even a horse museum for the real equestrian enthusiasts.
