Reviews from travellers
After much searching and useless discussions trying to find a horse ranch in Romania, we came across this trip. the team at Romanian Friend quickly answered our questions and we booked. Though getting to the ranch is not easy, it was worth it because the location is amazing: great views, hills and mountains in the distance, and very friendly staff and horses! We did guided trips over the hills and our horses were easy to maneuver as they knew their teritorry. We learned about local life, saw beautiful views, ate delicious food and rested comfortably. Thank you very much for this experience, we plan on coming again!
Lovely food, delightful company and great views. My husband and children were impressed with the quality of the horses and how responsive they were. We are planning a second trip already. Thank you!
