Albania Family Stay & Clinic
Central Albania

This program is designed for nature enthusiasts who want to take intensive basic riding lessons and discover Albania.

You are based in the village “Asim Zeneli" near Gjirokastër in the South of Albania. The program was created to give the opportunity to beginner riders to improve their skills while getting to know this part of Albania from a local perspective. During your stay, you will gain knowledge about riding in nature that will enable youto undertake short journeys on horseback anywhere in the world.

Your instructor has many years of experience, teaching in several countries and a natural approach to horse and rider training techniques.
The program is based on the Parelli method but adapted to the English style of riding. The program respects the health and character of the Albanian horse and aims to create a personalized relationship between the horse and the rider.

In addition to riding, the program offers opportunities to learn about local life: helping the staff at the horse stable (if desired), participating in the daily activities of the host family, interacting with the villagers,...
The program also includes quiet times for other activities such as bathing in the river, hiking, visiting archaeological sites and a lot of free time to meditate, read or attend art classes.
