Katrin H. is the provider of this trip
The provider speaks: English, German
Originally from the South of Germany, Katrin was raised in a rural environment and started to ride from her early childhood on. After having obtained her degree in violin studies, she worked as a violinist, devoting eight years of her career to music. However, her passion for horses, adventure, the outdoors and Csaba, the founder, brought her to Transylvania in early 2017. Amongst others, Katrin is in charge of the daily rides. Moreover, she takes care of the organizational aspects concerning our ranch and is always willing to help our guests out. If she finds the time, Katrin still loves to creatively express herself on her violin and to jam with our guests at the bonfire.

Route details

Day 1

After your arrival in Gheorgheni, we will take you on an adventurous off-road ride: In our van we will take you to our Ranch, which is remotely located in the Eastern Carpathian Mountains. With a little luck we might spot a deer, a capercaillie bird or even a bear. Once you have arrived on our ranch, you can unwind after your long journey by immersing yourself in the warm salt water of our Hot Pot. After having familiarized yourself with our horses and moving into your room, our cook Brigitta, will indulge you with an original Szekler dinner, in our rustic log cabin.

    about provider
    It was truly one of the best weeks I've had. I'm immensely grateful to the group and especially to Csaba for their patience during this equestrian adventure. I highly recommend everyone to experience at least 3 days in Harghita. It was absolutely incredible. Sending warm regards and hugs to all.
