El Bronco - Hungary

Ranch Stay

5 star rating   26 August 2018

Hilary who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. The best riding holiday I have ever had | Robert and his trainers helped my son, Isaac, who is ten years old. He started as a total beginner, and by the end of the week was cantering safely around the arena on his own. They were absolutely wonderful with him and have inspired him to ride more at home.
I am an experienced rider but learnt a great deal more on this holiday. It was really interesting to learn the western style of riding, and my horse was very sensitive and well behaved.
I would say that the riding and tuition exceeded my expectations.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

The food was very good and the room absolutely fine. I would have liked to be able to make tea in my room, or if that would not be possible, at least to be able to make it in the bar area. There was only either coffee or fruit teas for breakfast, I had to buy my tea each time I wanted it.
(As you can tell, I am a tea fan!)
The swimming pool, although quite small, was an absolute godsend in the very high temperatures we experienced. And on the day it rained, the hot tub in the wellness centre was great, too.

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

It was all done extremely well, I can't think of any way you could improve it.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

El Bronco is quite remote and it would have been great to be able make a few trips outside the ranch, for example to local towns or to see some of the Hungarian culture. There was not much to do in the evenings, and whilst this did not spoil the holiday at all for me perhaps a little more choice of activities would make it more attractive to a wider variety of people.
Having said that, I am planning to return next summer if I can!
