I would highly recommend a holiday with Equi Transylvania. My friend and I just spent a fun filled holiday riding through the beautiful Transylvanian countryside. The accommodation of a small village guesthouse and a beautifully presented yurt surrounded by hills and meadows was all super clean and comfortable. The food prepared throughout our stay was all home made and delicious.The 3 day riding experience was amazing - the horses were matched exactly to our skill levels and our guide Anna and Lehel were always on hand and considerate of our needs. The countryside is rolling hills, meadows and woodlands, with the horses being comfortable and kind in all the paces. Anna always checked to make sure we were happy with the pace and terrain. Being kept in a small herd grazing on large, varied meadows meant the horses live a very natural life and were all in excellent health and condition.Lehel, Anna and Melinda were all generous with their time and made our holiday experience an exceptional one. Riding happy and content horses with an experienced guide and support team allowed us to unplug and enjoy the natural beauty of Transylvania. It is a wonderful way to reconnect with nature. Thank you for a great holiday.

I’ve just returned from a completely brilliant horse-riding holiday with EquiTransylvania. Lovely willing, well cared for horses and nice quality tack. My horse Fenyves was fit, foot sure and a pleasure to ride. We had a great adventure riding through vast beautiful countryside and little villages. Our accommodation was comfortable in lovely surroundings (horses grazing outside our yurt!) and importantly, we had the most delicious meals made for us. Lehel, Anna and Melinda were outstanding hosts, going above and beyond and being good fun too. Amazing memories and photos and we’ll definitely return. Highly recommend!

Fantastic, an absolutely incredible and memorable holiday, thank you so much Lehal!We, my daughter (aged 12) and I, are recently home from three days riding (plus a few extra days) with equitransylvania and we could not have had a better trip, it was so good I don't know where to start!The riding is wonderful; grassy hills perfect for all paces, wide paths and tracks and a few incredibly quiet roads - you may pass a few carts!The horses are superb - beautifully schooled, fun and forward going, perfectly matched to our abilities.The scenery is staggeringly beautiful; rolling hills covered in flowers, ancient woods and pretty little villages.The guides -both Anna and Lehal are wonderful, their english is brilliant and they are incredibly adaptable and considerate of their riders (and horses, of course!).We stayed in the traditional guesthouse and the yurt and loved both - simple, gorgeous and quiet - to us perfect, not luxurious maybe, but fabulous and unique.To top it of we were just looked after so well, not only by Anna and Lehal but also lovely Melinda who picked us up from the airport, cooked us gorgeous food, catering to our slightly odd dietary requests, and generally looked after us so well!)All in all, this was a totally brilliant holiday that I can not recommend highly enough, we were looked after so very well, we loved exploring and riding through Transylvania and very much hope to return. thank you everyone - the horses, the dogs and everyone at equitransylvania, you are unique and wonderful!!!

Kiskede is a miracle, calm and relaxing!

Meet our horses

Over the past few years we have been selecting the most suitable horses for the local climate and the specific terrain conditions.

Deciding was the personality and the character of each of them, but as fundamental principle, we like Hungarian-origin purebreds. These traditionally bred horses have proved their endurance, intelligence and excellence over the centuries.

All our horses are trained for equestrian tours and they are used to the Transylvanian terrain conditions. We train them on a regular basis in the arena, work with lunge or long line and also work in hand. They are healthy, strong and fit for all our trail rides. It is important for us, that our horses live as close to their natural habitat as possible. If you want to know more, please read our Animal welfare policy.
