Riding Center Barabás
We are waiting for you at our horse riding center in Arcus, just 3 km from Sfântu Gheorghe, Covasna County. Whatever your age or level of riding, we aim to divulge the secrets of this wonderful sport, and give you some precious hours in the company of the horses. Whether the first lesson of horseback riding (for beginners) or a few hours through forests, hills and pastures (for the advanced), we hope you only take home pleasant memories!
Pony Instructor: Berde Orsolya

Children can start riding on a Shetland pony at the age of 3 (and up until age 7-8, or maximum 30 kg).
Horse riding can really begin at the age of 8-9, when the child has enough muscle strength and the ability to concentrate for a longer time. Beginners would start their lesson with the horse being on the lead, learning how to sit correctly and doing exercises that help finding their balance on horseback.
Experienced riders (who can walk, trot and canter) can choose to hack out with a local guide to the fields and woods around the village. There are treks of 1-2 hours, or day rides that include a picnic. The scenery is worthy in every season. On special request we can organize longer rides with overnight stops at guesthouses in the neighboring villages.
