Our stock is a good mixture of pure and halfbred horses, mainly breeds of Hungarian origin such as Shagya-Arabian, Kisberi, and Gidran. All these breeds are characterised by an outstanding willingness, endurance, beauty and good nature and proof their qualities again and again on all our rides.
Sit back, relax and savour delicious organic, home grown food from our own gardens and meat production, prepared for you with diligence.
All our animals for sport, company or meat production live a happy life moving freely and having social contacts with the same species.
We are personally involved and support one of the largest projects of wilderness and biodiversity conservation in Romania.
Some of the most important high nature value grasslands and natural forests left in Europe are right on our doorstep.
At Equus we try to offer our guests an unforgettable experience in one of Europe’s most diverse and rarest cultural and natural landscapes. Your journey outside Time.

“What an amazing week – thoroughly exceeded our expectations. It was everything that was described – and more. The scenery was breath-taking, meeting with “locals” along the way was such a privilege and so very interesting! Thank you for your amazing hospitality and sharing your knowledge and vision.”

“Thank you for a wonderful week – it was so relaxing! Life at its own pace is possible and it feels amazing. Having a holiday on the back of a horse, into the wild Carpathians… that’s an experience I won’t ever forget!”
