About Riding In Hungary
What is this thing? Two Finnish ladies in Hungary keeping horses? Yes, that’s exactly what it is!
We are Aime and Sonja, passionate animal lovers, who fell in love with the Badacsony area. With the perfect combination of expertise, knowledge and crazy fun we want to give our riders unforgettable memories and help them connect with horses and nature.
In the autumn of 2017 the idea of riding tours started to evolve in our minds. Hungary is a great country to keep horses, as the grazing season is so long and overall the winter is short and easy - at least compared to Finland. By spring of 2018 Sonja had graduated from Ypäjä Equine College, Aime’s mare Romina had traveled back to Hungary from Finland, and we had begun to gather our little herd of horses.
Both of us have a long history with horses, and especially riding in nature. What we wish to share with our customers is the feeling of safety and excitement while enjoying the changing seasons on horseback, trekking on trails, fields and never-ending forest roads.
It’s all about the horses
Needless to say, our amazing and smart horses are the key for our success. It takes a special kind of horse to be all this at the same time: reliable, friendly, calm, energetic, sensitive, tolerant, endure different handlers and riders, have a sense of humor…
We do our best to keep our horses' welfare at the highest level possible. Feeding, working herd life, hoof and dental care, deworming, exercise, and overall individual care are all important pieces of the puzzle that form an energetic and sound horse. For all this you need suitable facilities, equipment suitable for each horse and each job, and most importantly the people who want to put effort into the wellbeing of the animals.
By the end of the summer of 2018 we've launched our Facebook-pages and started marketing. So far our days are filled with work and joy.
In October of 2020 we took a big step forward and moved to the north side of Lake Balaton. We are now located on the north side of Lake Balaton in the famous Badacsony wine region. Our riding routes lead through the Balaton Uplands National Park where we are able to show our riders the stunning landscape of forests, hills and vineyards.
We're constantly developing our operation and creating more exciting programs for our riders to enjoy. We hope to see both old and new guests visiting us and enjoying the horse life with us!
