Details for Explore the Hungarian Puszta on horse back

Active Adventure

Hungary is an equestrian nation. The original Magyar tribes arrived on horseback in the 10th Century, and since then horses have played an important role in Hungarian life. Riding on the Southern Great Plain is a very different experience to riding in most other countries. The flat landscape is criss-crossed with long sandy tracks which allow you to explore this rural idyll without gates to open or fences to hinder your progress!
You can trot and canter for several kilometers at a time; you will be surprised at how quickly your horse covers the distances. The pace is mixed. Generally the riding is at walk, trot or canter along sandy tracks which take you across arable farms, past lakes and through forests. When riding at speed, your guide will take you to wide areas of open land where you can spread out, take your own line and allow your horse to show you what he is made of!

Typical Day

Usually rides go out right after breakfast for a few hours and radiate in different directions every day.
Lunch will be prepared at base of Homoki Dine or at specific picked places where typical
Hungarian food is served. (Drinks not included). Afternoon tea or coffee will be served whether before or after the afternoon rides depending on the season (included on package deals). Rides in the afternoon will last for about 1,5 - 2 hours.
Dinner at different places on the property of the Homoki Lodge; Homoki Dine, Homoki
Wine Cellar, BBQ or just out in the Garden under a tree (included on package deals) (Drinks not included). A traditional musical evening is usually held on a Wednesday, if there are a minimum of 3 guests attending.

Age range, type of group

Riding Ability
The horses are fit and strong and you can expect a lot of fast riding on this holiday, so you should be an experienced and confident rider to get the most from this trip. You must also be sufficiently experienced to control a forward going horse at speed in open spaces.

The horses are Hungarian Warm bloods of around 16hh and are ridden unshod. They are most suited to confident riders who have had experience of riding at speed over a variety of terrain.
Please note that the riding is much slower during the summer months of July and August and intermediate riders can also be accepted during this time. If a rider prefers to go a slower pace to enjoy the nature and wildlife, the group will be divided and met at a later point again to continue the ride together.

Most of the tack is English but there are Western, South African Trail and Australian
Stock saddles also available. Guests may not assist with tacking up. It is recommended that guests wear a properly fitted hard hat at all times when around the horses.

Group Size
The maximum group size is usually six riders.

Body Weight Limit
The weight limit is 95kg (approximately 14 stone 13lbs), although there are only two weight carrying horses available.

Sleeping and meals

Homoki Lodge is a Boutique Hotel located at the Homokhátsági Tanya-Birtok in Ruzsa and provides a 20
ha property with grazing lands and crops. All free standing charming buildings with thick adobe walls and
thatched roofs used to be a typical farmstead and are surrounded with adjacent free-stall, vegetable
cultivation, fruit Orchards and a nomadic animal husbandry.
Major restoration works have been carried out to make it still look like a traditional „Tanya‟ of long gone
days. This unique architecture is complemented with a tremendous attention to detail.

Meals are prepared at the Homoki Dine restaurant. A former stable has been transformed into so called
“Agricultural Guest Table” with a spacious dining area and lounge bar. All is traditionally furnished and
provides space for dancing and musical evenings. Outside there is a huge terrace and cozy pavilions
combined with a fantastic view onto the nomadic animal husbandry and the Puszta

Activity and relaxation keep the balance at the Homoki Lodge. The sauna in the garden is fired with
aromatic acacia wood, and afterwards the strong of heart can jump into the natural pool in the garden.
Wild tobacco grows in the fields of the Puszta; its intensively aromatic ethereal oil is used for the
massages. Another wonderful way to relax is through Carpathian salt baths, using salt won from the
remained salt steppes of the Puszta. Health & beauty treatments that do body and soul a world of good.
Nearby the Thermal springs of Mórahalom offer various hot pools and a sauna and wellness area.


Children over the age of fourteen who are experienced riders can be accepted on rides. Alternatively families may book a private week and the riding is then tailored to the needs of the family.

Sorry but pets are not welcome on horse riding tours
