Horse Riding Holidays

Day 1 (Sunday): land in Budapest, transportation to Kaboka Riding Club. Introduction to the family followed by a little sightseeing around the stables. Dinner in the evening and planning together the events of the week. We get to know each other and the trainers ask information on riding skills.

Day 2 (Monday): Breakfast. Evaluating the riding skills of students. Riding on the grass field and if needed in the riding hall. Our first riding lesson is dressage, where everyone gets the chance to show his or her riding skills. You will have to understand and carry out basic riding routines. It is a good warm up for you to get to know our horses and vice versa. Lunch. Riding on the grass field/riding hall. Our second riding lesson of the day is about refining our contact with the horses and to practice school figures: diagonal change of hand, half-turn, to change hand through the middle of the school, to turn across the school, to half-pass, to turn, to change hand, serpentine, figure of eight, change of hand in the circle, to change hand on the middle line, half-turn on the hocks ... Other recreational activities (volleyball, basketball, tennis etc.) Dinner.

Day 3 (Tuesday): Breakfast. Participating in the morning routines for horses. Riding on the grass field and if needed in the riding hall. Our third riding lesson, taught by a dressage trainer, is based on the level of riding knowledge the group showed on the first day and building on that knowledge (medium walk, extended walk, collected walk, walk on two tracks, medium trot, working trot, extended trot, simple change of hand in gallop, canter true-hand, working canter, extended canter, hunting canter) Lunch. Riding on the grass field/riding hall. Show jumping lessons. The aim of the show jumping lesson is to measure the level of show jumping skills of the group. After the warm-up phase the riders jump obstacles of low and mid height. Other recreational activities (volleyball, basketball, tennis etc.) Dinner.

Day 4 (Wednesday): Breakfast. Travel to Budapest. Shopping in one of Budapest’s biggest riding shops. Lunch. Sightseeing and shopping in Budapest centre. Coffee in one of Budapest’s up market cafeterias. Dinner. Party in the thriving nights of Budapest.

Day 5 (Thursday): Breakfast. Participating in the morning routines for horses. Riding on the grass field and if needed in the riding hall. We have a dressage training lesson in the morning, where we go on learning new skills of handling with our horse: giving way to the legs, shoulder-in, to half-pass. Instead of the dressage lesson, we offer a cross-country ride (about 1.5 hours long). Lunch. Riding on the grass field/riding hall. Show jumping lessons. Our professional show jumper Balazs will teach this lesson and he will correct the riders style and manner of jumping. Other recreational activities (volleyball, basketball, tennis etc.) Dinner.

Day 6 (Friday): Breakfast. Participating in the morning routines for horses. Riding on the grass field and if needed in the riding hall. The dressage practice will concentrate on carrying out a full dressage test. Lunch. Riding on the grass field/riding hall. Show jumping lessons. Practicing on a new show jumping course.

Q. Is the riding suitable for people of all age groups ?
Yes of course. For adults not participating in the riding there is a 25% reduction in the prices and they would stay on site with their children. This price includes travel and food. If necessary we have self catering accommodation close by should the non participating parents wish to have some peace and quiet. This way the parents can leave their children to stay on the farm and have some free time to enjoy the beautiful Lake Balaton area on their own and drop by to say hello as necessary.

Q. What about insurance ?
All guests are required to have individual international insurance

Q. Can you accommodate mixed groups ?
Yes and they are accommodated separately

Q. Can we tweak the schedule to suit our particular requirements - for example if we prefer more cross country trails rather than dressage routines would this be possible ?
Yes of course – just send me your preferred program and we will advise by return or discuss this when you arrive

Q. What is the food like and can you cater for special dietary requirements ?
The food we prepare is of a very high standard – whenever possible we use fresh local produce. Yes we can cater for special food requirements. Please make this known when booking. We have a BBQ area next to the swimming pool and stables which we use during your stay

Q. Is the cost of the extra activities included in the price ?
