See Konopiště and the surrounding area from the saddle of a horse. The Favory Stud Farm will saddle up one of its hundred regal horses for you, and on either a shorter or a daylong ride you can appreciate the natural beauty of the former estate of Franz Ferdinand d’Este, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. Certainly don’t miss a guided tour of the stud farm. You can also enjoy carriage rides and cycling. For those who would like insight into the pursuits of horse riding and driving a team of horses, instruction is available. In winter there is the possibility of Skijöring – riding on sledges pulled by horses.
