Horseback Riding

Learn how to ride or join a horseback tour on the Estate. The Count Mikes Stud Farm awaits its visitors to enhance body and mind with a replenishing ride.

The horse stud existed since Mihály MIKES's time the late 17th century.

As a curiosity, in 1758 the Empress Elisabeth of Russia bought 28 Transylvanian horses from Zabola in order to create a stud in St. Petersburg.

During WW I. in 1917 the horses were moved for protection towards today's Austrian border. Count Ármin MIKES had his horses racing in Vienna in 1918 with the family colours yellow and red.

In 2018 English thoroughbred and Szekler mares were bought and are being crossbred with Arabians to re-establish the former renowned breed.
