SUMMARY OF THE TRIP top

El Bronco is a fantastic style western style ranch just 2 hours form Budapest which offers everything from trail riding in the Kiskunság National Park, reining in one of their many outdoor and indoor arenas (their facilities are such that they often hold national and international reining competitions), barrel racing & pole bending courses, clinics with specialised riders like Vera Ledneczki and cutting and western horsemanship course. Locally you can visit a chees factory and sample some of the local wine. And if it all gets too much, relax in their spa and enjoy a jacuzzi, a sauna or book a massage with one of their therapists.

It’s the ideal place to visit if you really enjoy western style riding and are an enthusiast and want to visit somewhere nearer than making the longer trip over to the states. It’s also and ideal place for families, children from 8 years upwards can join you riding and non riders are welcome too.

Most of them are quarter horses, there are paint horses, appaloosas, and some of them are half quarter horses. Out of the stable there are about 20 horses in work, the rest are foals, broodmares or retired ones. You have access to these 20 highly trained horses, which are a pleasure to ride.

El Bronco Ranch : Level of Riding & Pace – From beginners to advanced riders.

Tack – Western Style

Weight Restriction – 15st 9lbs / 100 kg / 219lbs

If you are over the limit, it is still possible to ride as there are two heavier weight carrying horses, so please let us know as early as possible as to your requirements.

The bar is well stocked and the food is simple, fresh, lost of salads, local meat and cheese, all washed down with good Hungarian wine!

We have travelled the world testing a huge variety of horse riding holidays to make sure we offer you, our client, the best horse riding holiday experience possible.

Our horse riding holidays are thoroughly researched – we consider all the elements that go towards making our horse riding holidays collection the best in the world. We check the quality of the horses, if they are fit for the job, well produced and looked after. We make sure the riding terrain is good going, the countryside is interesting and, for example, on Classic Dressage horse riding holidays, the arenas are in good condition. We make sure the accommodation, whether it’s a five star hotel, a farmhouse or camping, is clean and comfortable, and offers a great night’s sleep. The food is all important too – we take the time to make sure we tell you if it’s cordon bleu, home cooked, or regional and locally sourced – above all it has to be delicious, plentiful and nourishing. Last but not least, we choose the horse riding holidays that have the best hosts, who are friendly, warm and welcoming.

It’s only when all these elements come together that we add a horse riding holiday into our hand-picked collection of horse riding holidays.

Horse Riding Holidays at Homoki Lodge are part of  the Zara’s Planet collection of Horse Riding Holidays Hungary.

Hungary Holidays Testimonials

Daisy Finer on Homoki Lodge, Hungary

The gallop through the tobacco fields and wild flowers is possibly the most sensational ride ever. The evenings are also a highlight - the galloping grooms turn into dashing, twinkle-toed dancing partners, as chivalrous as any cavalier. Don't write off Hungary as boring - this is a real gem. Those in the know keep it
