During our riding tours you can discover the landscape while, riding on the horses of the Hungarian warriors, the legendary Akhal Teke. This is the breed which is unseparable from our history, and which is famous for its special comfort. Not only the horses, but also our saddles are special: They are handcrafted by the Cseppentő family, modernized for today’s riding needs and horses. They are extremely safe and comfortable, proven to be extremely usable during the tours of recent years. For those who are interested in the Akhal Teke breed or in our saddles, this tour or its short version provides a good opportunity to try them and get acquainted with the saddle.

Yurts

Yurts accommodated the Magyars for a longer period of time then permanent dwellings since the Magyars settled in the Carpathian Basin. This is the reason why those, who sleep in yurts with horses grazing all round may experience what life may have been like in the long-gone nomadic days thousands of years ago.

If you spend some nights in a yurt, as the night falls, you can hear the rustle of horses as they bite the grass and snort quietly, the mares in heat utter short neighs, and as time goes by, through the circular roof opening you can watch the stars gently move. In the yurts light is provided by oil lanterns, and there are no bathrooms. There are shower cabinets with hot and cold running water near the yurts.

A large yurt is also available for social events. There is room in it for 40-50 people, it has an open fireplace equipped with a large iron grid for grilling, and it is furnished with 8 tables and a serving table as well as tripods for cooking pots. Beside this yurt is a cooking area with a gas cooker and refrigerators. There is also a parking area for coaches and cars.The Kazakh and Mongolian yurts are furnished with couches, decorated with carpets, and there are also blankets inside. Each yurt can accommodate max. 6 persons (maybe one or two more), so the total capacity of the six yurts is 36-40 persons per night. We welcome groups of 8-16 persons to our equestrian tours and camps, during which relatives or friends can share a yurt at their discretion.
