Hungary - Puszta Trail Ride

Hungary’s almost unlimited space makes it ideal for riders. Here's your chance to experience Puszta on a trail ride with Maja and her fine horses. During this week you will get to know the Hungarian countryside and enjoy tasty meals and experience fast-paced riding on beautiful horses.

After a test ride it's off to the south, through woods, up on the rolling hills and on to the Puszta. Ther are large sprawling fields and open spaces as far as the eye can see and the chance for long uninterrupted gallops. On the Puszta, you will meet the Hungarian gray cattle and sheep.
During this week you get to know the Hungarian Puszta (large open fields) which shimmers with wildflowers in spring and early summer. You get to enjoy tasty meals and experience fast-paced riding on beautiful horses. You ride 160-180 km during the week and about 3½ - 5 hours/day.

Puszta - Weekend

It is also possible to book a shorter based stayed trail ride (Thursday-Sunday), and then you will stay at Maja's farm.  You will ride out in the beautiful surroundings, about 4-5 hours per day on Friday and Saturday.
