Horse riding camps for children

Riding camp “La Mesteceni” – a wonderful one week vacation

Riding camps are a perfect choice for an excellent mini vacation. Children have proven time and time again that they get close to animal really quickly and they are able to easily establish a good report with horses. In the “Mesteceni” riding camp, children are able to learn about the art of horseback riding, starting with safety rules and horse grooming. During camp, we organize an outdoor trip on horseback that includes cooking a picnic lunch by the forest. Children can also join in on different outdoor activities and workshops.

For those that would like individual riding lessons, we recommend the courses offered by our English Riding School.
