Bartha Lovastanya Farm
We invite you in our farm in order to relax around a treasury of cultural exception: Lipizzan horses!
The Bartha’s Farm’ and the Lipizzan Horse Club’s headquarters are located near the village of Chichiş, in the beautiful area of the Piatra Mare, Făgăraş, Bucegi, Piatra Craiului and Ciucaş mountains.
The farm history began in 1992, with purchasing two mares of the Favory and Conversano bloodlines and two stallions of the Siglavy Capriola and Maestoso bloodlines from the Stud Farm of Sâmbăta de Jos. After a period of search for an optimal agricultural land for the breeding and growing of these Lipizzan horses, the owner found an overall of 40 ha in Chichiş, out of which 30 ha is pasture and 10 ha is arable and grassland.
The Bartha’s Farm has a total of 47 horses, out of which 12 are mares, 25 foals, and 10 race horses. The farm finished its riding arena last year, on the top of which was built a hostel of 16 places, mostly used for equestrian conferences, and different types of family events.
The Bartha’s Farm is both for the Lipizzaner horse lovers and nature enthusiasts.
The trail excursions are very popular at the Bartha’s Farm and usually begin in May and last until November. They are both for beginners and advanced riders. The 3-5 day hikes on horseback take the rider to the adjacent mountains and the package includes accommodation and demi-pension at the farm.
The one-week summer camps for children take place in July and August, each day with three-hour equestrian activities in the morning and evening. Robert Bartha and his son are permanent participants of national and international carriage competitions.
