We are Izovi family - Miro, Svetla and Ventsi. Our horse base is located 15 km west from Sofia in Opitsvet village in the foot of Balkan mountain quiet and cosy place with a lovely view. The area is exceptionally variegated oasis of verdancy, hills, small stream and dam lakes.
We started in 1997 as amateurs with two riding mare in our free time. Gradually, however, the dealing with horses has become for us into fascinating passion, which we dedicated more and more time and efforts. We bought more horses, gained experience and literature. The problems and sleepless nights didnt discourage us, but just the other way gave us confidence that this is something we want to do.
We are now professional breeders. Most of our 40 horses are self breeding. In 2007 representatives Trakehner Verband, the German Trakehnen Association paid a visit to Bulgaria for assessment of our horses, which was the first steep on the breeding recognition in Bulgaria. That visit turned to a real triumph our horses won extremely high recognition.
In 2008 the Trakehner stallion Preussenprinz was sold to us by the Union of Trakehner for breeding in Bulgaria, and already in March 2009 the first foal with German passport was born. The German Association fully supports our efforts in promoting the breeding of the Trakehner horses in Bulgaria. In 2009 the experts from Germany visited us again for branding of the foals. Two female and 5 male received German passports.
Probably for most people who have never dealt with horses that sounds exciting. For others, such activity might seem like a profitable business. But for us, however, this is hard work, day-and-night work round-a clock, willing and tremendous love.
