Centre Based Rides

Join us for a week-long programme with a strong emphasis on the local culture. Over the course of the week, you will have three day-rides in the saddle, returning to the guesthouse each evening, as well as a two-day trek with an overnight stay in tents.

The rides lead us through meadows and forests of the Carpathian Mountains and their foothills between 500 and 1,000 m in altitude. We ride mainly on grass-covered paths and trails or on forest roads.

Sometimes, we come across tracks or markings of bears, occasionally even of wolves. To protect our horse’s joints, we dismount and lead the horses on steep descents.

During the two-day camping trip, we traverse some beautiful forests before we reach a mountain settlement, where people still live a very simple life, without electricity and running water.

In the vicinity of one of these mountain farms, on a ridgetop meadow with a stunning view, we set camp and together enjoy a barbecue and campfire late in the evening.

One of the days, you have a break from horseback riding and head out exploring local history and culture by vehicle with a passionate, knowledgeable Romanian guide. You will learn about the rich history of Transylvania on a journey through medieval villages and towns. Endless forests and spectacular views are the characteristics of this trip.

On one of the evenings, you have the opportunity to watch wild brown bears in their natural habitat from a wildlife watching hide tucked away in the forest.

We ride in groups of up to 8 people and are accompanied by two guides. We cover between 20 and 30 km daily, which takes us six to seven hours including a lunch break on a scenic spot in between. The rides are a good mix of walking, trotting, and cantering.

Our centre-based rides are not suitable for beginners, participants have to be competent in all paces. For safety reasons we require safety helmets to be worn on all our rides. Maximum weight limit is 95 kg.
