Horses and the Rosens in Gacionys Dvaras.

Horses and equestrian sports have always been a true passion for the Rosens.

The house still has a very large 700 SqM barn made of large walls and an indoor arena for exercising  horses.

One of our ancestors was a dear friend of Pierre de Coubertin the man who created the modern Olympic Games and he pressed Coubertin back in 1889 to introduces equestrian sports in the Olympics.
