Responsible tourism: Horse riding holidays in Transylvania

Having returned from exile in Western Europe, the owner believes strongly in investing in and respecting the local community and the environment. All our holidays are operated in a manner to provide guests with an outstanding experience that has minimal impact on the environment while providing maximum benefit to the local community. The estate provides year round employment for 30 local people and supports the local economy by purchasing the bulk of its supplies from local farmers and craftspeople.

The hay and maize fed to the horses is hand-produced using organic methods. The vast majority of foodstuffs are grown naturally. The heating system uses a renewable energy source, wood, that is purchased from the local foresters who closely guard the mountain forests to ensure proper management of this precious resource.

Horses are vital to life in Transylvania and to the livelihood of the estate and we uphold the highest standards of animal welfare. Horses remain with the centre long term (many are bred on the premises) and the staff know the character and special needs of each animal. The centre is active in promoting good horsemanship and guiding skills. The estate’s own horses are shod using natural balance methods, which more closely simulate how the animal’s feet would be without human intervention.
