Posestvo Ugar is situated near the town Ribnica, 45 km south-east from the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana. Forming the core of a 1.500 hectare estate, the 70 hectare equestrian centre is owned and run by Jurij and Maja Rudež and reflects some 200 years of equestrian tradition and history.
After 2000, the Rudež family together with the estate manager Maks Riossa and Manja Koren began the restoration of the estate and a revival of old family bonds with equestrian sport to be re-established. The benefits reaped include the establishment of a high quality equestrian centre on a new site comprising modern breeding and training facilities and now recognized as one of the most developed locations of it's type in this region of Europe.
Resident and visiting experts and trainers ensure the succesful breeding, healthy upbringing and optimal training of their horses, which ultimately enables the Ugar Equestrian Team riders to achieve remarkable results at both national and international level.
