Biskupice
Oferta gospodarstwa "Stajnia Biały Borek" jest bardzo bogata. Można tu przenocować (40 miejsc) oraz smacznie zjeść. Stylowa gospoda z drewnianych bali połączona jest z XIX-wieczną, zabytkową chatą. Niezwykle urokliwy jest też Kamienny Domek – apartament do wynajęcia dla kilku osób. W Stajni hoduje się zawsze kilka koni „pod siodło” - rekreacyjnych półkrwi oraz hucułów. Istnieje więc możliwość skorzystania z nauki jazdy konnej (dzieci i dorośli), jazdy na lonży (długiej linie), po padoku (wybiegu) czy przejażdżki w terenie. Wszystko pod kierunkiem wykwalifikowanych instruktorów.
