Stupe, City Livno

Livno offers one of its most prominent attractions in the form of semi-feral horses that inhabit the Krug plateau in close proximity to the town. We are referring to equine descendants that were previously utilized in agricultural practices, but were subsequently abandoned due to the emergence of contemporary mechanization. It is important to note that we are not discussing horses that were originally feral. Due to the lack of organized human care for nearly 50 years, these individuals traverse tens of kilometers daily to obtain sustenance and hydration. Despite harsh natural conditions, poaching, and wild animals, they have successfully survived and are now considered one of the most stunning attractions in the area. They are also legally protected. Based on 2015 data, the feral horse population was recorded at 418 individuals and has since experienced a steady increase, with current estimates nearing 1,000 individuals. The distance between the village of Stupe and the City of Livno is 4 kilometers.
