My name is Zarko. I love animals and deal with them since small boy. Now, as “bigger” boy I continue with same spirit. I am happy that I have created The Horseman Ranch, formed good team and complete my childhood dream. We did extremely interesting programs for riders.
For kids, together with my team, we created unique program tailored to Bulgarian tradition and culture, with elements borrowed from scouts USA programs. The Horseman Ranch is not only horse riding center, it is feeling of FREEDOM.
The idea of creating the Ranch came after one trip to USA in 2002. Together with Zarko we have completed State Choreographic School and out trip were related to participation in The International Folklore Festival. During our stay we have visited one ranch and then the idea about OUR RANCH, was born. Our children grew, and our idea was to maintain a healthy relationship between them and nature.
Today's "urban" children are less able to touch the work on a farm in the countryside and wildlife. Coming to us they receive wonderful emotions and memories that remain in them for life.

As a part of the Ranch’s team I have the opportunity to meet and communicate with wonderful people of different age, status, nationality - but united in the human in them....
Having the opportunity to look at the world from horseback, ride to horizon together with wind and sky, to show people the magic of the world of horses - for me it is priceless and irreplaceable...
