Hungary: Holidays on Horseback
Hungary is a dream destination for all budget-conscious fans of horse riding. You can find elegant steeds, beautiful rolling countryside for trail riding, and accommodation on-site with hearty Hungarian meals for very reasonable rates.
One such excellent deal can be found at the Tiborcz Equestrian Club, a mere 40 kilometres from Budapest. Once the estate of Count József Pálffy-Daun, it is now a 75-acre horse paradise with indoor and outdoor riding grounds and corrals.
Accommodation is in tastefully-decorated rooms and includes use of sauna, swimming pool, and fitness room. Meals are all home cooked. One week’s half-board accommodation with twelve hours of trail riding costs €380. A range of other special offers is also available. We noted that a double room, including dinner, and one-hour trail of trail riding comes to €100 for two.
