Horseback riding in Romania

The Romanians have a long going tradition when it comes to horses, one that goes all way back to our ancestors. The horse played a key part in the development of our country and was used for agricultural labor, hunting and as a way of getting around.

In some Romanian villages you’ll still find young boys keeping alive the old ways of horseback riding wearing Romanian folk costumes. On special occasions like weddings or national holidays, they proudly put on their traditional costumes and parade through the village.

We convinced some lads from the village of Boiu near Sighisoara to take their horses and show us their riding skills and we were amazed how natural and easy going they were.
