About Us

About us

Located in Kiskede, a small, well-hidden, Hungarian speaking Transylvanian village, our small sized family-run riding facility offers horseback riding vacations and equestrian tours for adult riders, usually groups of 2-6 people.

We provide not only well- trained Hungarian warmbloods, but on our tours we also combine the great joy of riding with experiencing the breathtaking landscape and wildlife of Transylvania, where the fragnant scents of the boundless fields merge with the clean air and the soft light radiating from the mountains.

We respect and adore the traditional Transylvanian village life and want to show you a slice of that.

After a day filled with adventure and great riding, a cosy bed and a delicious regional meal is waiting for you. The dark blue sky filled with countless stars and the soft call of the owls will gently lull you to sleep.

Lukács Lehel 

the founder and head of Equi Transylvania – also your guide on the the riding tours – is a skilled rider and dedicated horseman. He spends most of his free time with his horses, in any weather condition at any time of the day.

Passionate about the high dressage quality of his horses, which is based on the academic art of riding as well as on the principle of natural horsemanship, his personal idols are the Hungarian military riders of the early 1900’s.

Lehel loves and respects the Hungarian-speaking Transylvanian village, their traditional folklore and the regional way of life.

Approved guide by FER (Romanian Equestrian Federation), member of the Nemzeti Lovasakadémia (National Horse Academy – Hungary), he speaks Hungarian, Romanian, and English. Tour guiding in English or Hungarian.

Location

Kiskede (Chedia Mica in the official Romanian language) is located in the center of Transylvania, the Hungarian-speaking part of Romania. The first written record of human settlement dates from 1567.

In the medieval period, Kiskede was a Roman-Catholic village, but after the reformation the population switched to the Unitarian church. Kiskede (meaning small village of Kede) and Nagykede (meaning big village of Kede), two neighbouring villages have a common Unitarian church even today, situated at the top of the hill which divides the two villages.

Kiskede offers a peaceful atmosphere without traffic, gas station or shops, only 50 people live there.

It is 7 km to the nearest small city, Székelykeresztúr (Cristuru-Secuiesc), and only 30 km to Sighisoara, a fine example of a small, fortified medieval town, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Centre.

Outside the village, just over the hill, there is a lovely lake, great for fishing and swimming in summer.

This is where our horses live and also where all the tours start.
