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.
