Riding Adventures

In 2017 we suggest you some new and fascinating life-experience Transylvania day trips. They can be organized in two regions: on the Hartibaciu Valley and in Marginimea Sibiului, at the bottom of the Carpathians.

  • Riding in the Hartibaciu Valley:  promoted by Prince Charles of Great Britain for its rich and diversified flora and fauna, its picturesque landscape and its old Saxon villages, the Hartibaciu Valley is ideal for an unforgettable day! It’s the perfect place to enjoy the nature peacefulness, taste the delicious local dishes and explore a whole new culture and civilization!

  • Riding in Marginimea Sibiului: we suggest you some tours at the bottom of the Carpathians, close to Sibiu. It’s a hilly area with such a nice landscape and so many stories to reveal.

We can organize a tour for beginners – individual riding lessons for beginners (adults/ children): mounting, balance & control, stopping and steering, you’ll learn how to ask the horse to walk, trot, canter, and halt.
For those who already have experience in riding, we suggest some nice, relaxing short tours in the area: we’ll enjoy the beautiful landscape, visit the villages around (Fantanele, Sibiel, Cristian, Vale) and have a delicious meal in the countryside. We can end the day with a nice local dinner joined by the wine produced by the same equestrian center.
