Wow, wow, wow !! It was an amazing week! Had a fresh and forwardgoing mare, nice horse and a perfect match! We rode on the beach, in the green hills above the beach, up and down really steep hills, crossed small and large rivers, through small villages, past many, many cows and across stones and rocks … And the horses went so safe and steady everywhere. The biggest river took us almost 10 minutes to cross over and the water came up to the stomach of the horses, but they were completely carefree. And rock climbing was no trouble for the horses! And all the gallops on the beach -WOW !! 🙂

They do match the horses really well. My horse was a bit on the loopy side but I suppose that says it all.

The horses were perfect. I had a different horse for each half day and I would have happily bought any of them! Very very easy but also very fun to ride. They have a huge number of horses there (90?!) so you are bound to find a few that suit you.

Short Break

5 star rating   11 February 2018

The riding more than met my expectations at Los Alamos.
The variation of: forest, woodland, sand tracks, firebreaks and the beach meant we experienced slower more challenging riding as well as opportunities to have fast canters and gallops too.
Our guides were knowledgeable and helpful throughout and all horses/riders were well-matched; some more forward and eager than others but all well mannered and fit for the work. The tack was well maintained and appropriate for each horse.

Wonderfull week, which in all ways exceeded my expectations. The hosts are friendly, service minded and skilled. There is control over all details and a nice atmosphere, where you can easily relax when you do not ride. The chef makes good homemade food and the food is generally top notch (for example, there is free access to wine). The horses are well behaved and fit, and you one can sense that they are well taking care of.

The nature around the farm is magnificent and varied, so you get up into the mountains and ride on flat plains. We had a sweet and competent guide, which made us feel safe.

In the middle of the week there was a cultural day excursion to Brasov. with a nice guide who spoke good English and who could tell a lot of exciting things about Romania.
I can only highly recommend this holiday.

5 star rating   8 February 2018

Took a couple of days to find the right horse - they are a little reluctant to trust that you are a good rider no doubt to previous experiences with people overstating their ability. However this didn't distract from the holiday as we were there to see the animals and the horses knew their job and were very well behaved and responsive when required. Most of the riding was one behind the other due to the terrain as it was mostly bush so not much open spaces - it would have been nice to have the odd gallop in an open area and perhaps some trotting - it was either walk or canter. The saddles took a bit of getting used to and my UK saddle saver wouldn't fit as they are cavalry type saddles but we still managed 4-5 hours of riding each day without any rubs or blisters!

Yes, it was actually really learning ful and since I have not been horseback riding for about 10 years I really got to challenge myself in a positive way. Would maybe wish that we could go for some outdoor-trips during the stay/more variation. Also positive that classes were adjusted to personal wishes (if you had one).
