Lithuania has centuries of horse breeding traditions. The breed of Žemaitukas horses, which was bred and nurtured by the Lithuanians and which has made Lithuania famous, has been known to the world since the 6th and 7th centuries. Horses are an inseparable part of Lithuania’s historical and cultural heritage. Aušra Girdenienė, the founder of the “Delta” Stud Farm, talks about her hobby: “For me, horses are like wings for a bird. Riding a horse gives me the opportunity to rise above the mundane.” A sightseeing trip on a Žemaitukas horse or a crossbreed not only leaves a lasting impression, but is also a colourful experience while visiting hillforts and enjoying the landscapes of the Venta valleys.
