We continue downhill towards the Lepenica River where you will enjoy riding through the shallow River and enjoy its waterfalls. For the next 15 or so kilometers, we will mainly walk and trot on forest paths with few glades and enjoy sight and sound or mountain river Crna Rijeka (Black River).
The riding camp is in front of us with fresh prepared grilled trout. The sound of Crna Rijeka and shade invites for a quick nap in hammocks.

Moving further, the elevation will continue to rise and after 1,324 meters above sea level, our first stop will be high plane which is located at an altitude of 1,744 meters. The incline is gentle through forest paths and open glades.
We will leave the forest belt when you cross the border height of 1,600 meters and there the spectacle called Bitovnja starts. The vast mountain pastures invite to canter,and gallop and the scenery is breathtaking on all sides, it seems as if a man could see from one end of Bosnia to another. We will leave 10 kilometers of hard riding behind you, and our logistics (trail support Lazy Car) will invite us to a well-deserved rider camp (picnic) on Bitovnja. A hot traditional Bosnian dish of sausage and bean casserole will be served on the spectacular high plains. We will continue through vast pastures and you can certainly say that it is the most beautiful section of our adventure.

We will ride on the mountain pastures where shepherds graze thousands of sheep during the summer and, in the valley, you will see their huts, pastures, and folds for sheep.
All around us, we will have the slopes of the Zec Mountain with natural plantations of cranberries and blueberries. On a clear day, you can even see Sarajevo from this position. We’ll stop at a spectacular view spot to enjoy a saddle-bag picnic lunch. While the horses graze. After an hour or so of rest, we will continue on to your next destination – Prokoško Lake.
Many have written about the beauty of this fairy tale lake, calling it an eye of the mountain or natural gem. It is located in the heart of the Mountain Vranica, which, according to many, is the most beautiful tourist destination in Bosnia and Herzegovina. There are shepherds’ huts around the lake, built entirely of wood, logs, and covered with wood. One of these huts will be the place where we spend the night.

Before loading our horses in trailers, we’ll have a final saddle-bag picnic watching the horses graze. After lunch both horses and riders will transfer by vehicle back to Lazy Horse.
