I have already been on a bike trip this year, travelling abroad is still prohibited, so where to go for a few days of July holidays, so that it is a trip to the nature and at the same time again something new? How about to Orlické hory, or Eagle Mountains, but cowboy-style on horseback?
The route led for the first two days through forests and meadows from the ranch in Hrádek near Ústí nad Orlicí, around the river Tichá Orlice, through Brandýs to the Potštejn castle, from there around the river Divoká Orlice through Litice castle and Žamberk to pastures above the dam of Pastviny. And another two days back, through a bit different path but roughly the same route around the river.
Based on this trip, I can confirm that the horse is an environmentally friendly vehicle, albeit occasionally releasing gaseous emissions, with three to four speeds, good off-road capability, beautiful view from the driver’s seat, automatic parking and built-in heating from below. My full recommendation.
