Hungary - El Bronco

El Bronco lies in the beautiful, peaceful setting of the Kiskunsági National Park. The park covers an area of 53,000 hectares and is home to a wide range of flora and fauna including white tailed eagle, nine species of orchid, heron, white tailed deer and black-winged stilt. The lakes within the park also provide a temporary home for tens of thousands of migratory birds. The landscape consists mainly of saline plains and sandy lowlands, which make it ideal riding country. A rather unusual feature of this area are the sand dunes, which stretch along for miles and offer great views of the national park when you reach the top of them. The riding is varied and interesting; during a ride out you may start out along sandy tracks through the forest, then wind your way past the lake and end up negotiating the sand dunes, which is great fun!

El Bronco ranch was formed in the 1980's as a holiday home in the country. Since then, it has expanded to become a renowned Western riding ranch, with important Quarter-horse, Appaloosa and Paint breeding stock. The horses raised on the ranch are started using gentle training techniques and lead fulfilling lives as leisure and show horses. 

The ranch boasts fantastic facilities, there are two large outdoor arenas, an indoor arena, seven corrals, extensive winter pasture, a round-pen, stables and tack-room. Guests are well catered for too, with 12 en-suite rooms, a bar, outdoor dining area and outdoor pool. There is also a wellness centre, featuring a jacuzzi, steam cabin, infrared sauna, Finnish sauna and large shower cabin.

Massages are a great way to ease aching riding muscles. The masseuse is not on-site and so if you would like a massage during your stay we recommend you request this on the first evening so that arrangements can be made. Massages are payable locally and cost around €30 for 45 minutes.

If you are a non-rider or would like a break from riding there are a great range of activities available at additional cost. Your guide will discuss various options with you during your first evening, but extra activities which are usually on offer include a visit to the local cheese factory, wine tasting sessions, a carriage ride, a jeep safari in the national park, an early morning visit to the bird station, hiking in the national park, fishing in Izsák and a visit to the nearby town of Kecskemet.

El Bronco has something for everyone, whether you are new to riding or just new to riding Western. Wonderfully responsive horses and insightful instruction will see you make great progress even if you are only able to stay for a short time.
My top tip:
Western riders tend to ride in jeans, but do wear whatever you are most comfortable in. The ground is sandy so take a 'buff' to cover your nose and mouth or enter into the Western spirit and wear a brightly coloured bandana instead! Sunglasses are a good idea and will help to keep your vision clear on those fun canters out on the trail.
