Horse Riding Trails in Romania

Romania is one of the last countries in Europe in which the horse has not yet been replaced by the tractor truck. Horse riding trails through Transylvania and the Carpathian mountains offer majestic scenery and a step back in time, staying in converted farmhouses and local village houses. Home to one of the last primeval forests in Europe, this area is a haven for large mammals such as wolves, bears and lynx.
