  • Description


    We are a horse riding center at the foot of the Romanian Carpathians with a strong focus on environmental issues. Throughout the year we receive international guests from all over the world who join us for weekly rides and trails through the foothills of the mountains and the Transylvanian hills. Additional to the riding we offer nature based tourism like hiking and watching wildlife.

    We have a beautiful guesthouse with 9 rooms, 2 open stables with around 30 horses, pigs, geese, cats and dogs. We try to be as self-sufficient as possible, therefor we have our own garden with different types of vegetables and fruits and our own meat and dairy production. All our food is a 100% organic and we try to purchase from local resources as much as possible.

  • Help


    Our season goes from April to November and we need people who help us with guests, maintenance around the house, help in the kitchen, gardening, giving riding lessons or taking people out on short rides.

    Since it takes quite a long time before we have worked you in and can let you work independently we can only accept helpers for a minimum stay of 3 month.
