Riding horses

There are plenty of places to try out horse riding in the country altough the one in Tihany at the inner lake is far the best among all of them. The place is exceptionally unique but not because of shiny modern technology not at all. The reason is that the people there who have been safeguarding our traditions have kept all the horses donkeys and mules in their natural environment.


The sight is almost never to be seen nowdays and the best part is we can also observe the beautiful panorama of the land. The animals are so tame and peacful and many of them built up a sort of friendship with foreigners.
 

The experience wouldn’t be complete whitout the owner Kötél Ferenc who has humbly dedicated his life to his work and to love the animals for their whole lives. He tends to personally accompany people and carry them with a horse car to guide them around the land and the lake. The calmness the nature gives is almost forgotten and he is more than glad to change this fact.

 

During our ride we can hear intresting things about keeping horses or about the birds fishes or rabbits around the lake. He once told us how he met his very first horse in his life when he simply went to buy water supplies for his family.
