After a delicious breakfast we saddle our horses and hit the road to the Swietkorzyskie ancient forests. We will go through sunlight beech woods to discover, hidden in the deep forest, Kopulak Mine where they used to mine for the world- known speckled sandstone. This is the place where the signs of life from 240 million years back was discovered. We admire the only one in Europe „Orange Lake”, also: orange rocks glowing with pink light, wood lake in the excavation and lush green thicket. After that we go to a yellow sandstone quarry which is called The Eyes of the Earth thanks to its incredible shape. Here we have longer brake for the barbeque. We will light a campfire and cook our favorite food on a stick over it.

We will ride through the shadows of the wood gorge admiring firs that are more than a hundred years old. We will visit the Michniowski Stone reserve situated on the hill among beech forest. Hidden in the maze of rocky corridors there is a cave where partisans used to hide. Maybe we will see the footprints of a devil who – according to the legend – used to sit on the rocks and play sad melodies on his fiddle to fool inattentive wanderers.

 5h riding; lunch in the saddle

We will have the privilege to meet wild nature in the Pig Mountain (Swinia Gora) reserve which is the last refuge of the ancient Swietokrzyskie Forests.
