As MTI reported, the first of the “EuroHorse” routes, which passes through Northern Hungary, will be accessible to the general public from 2022 onwards, the Office of the Government Commissioner for Active Hungary said.
Hungary offers unique opportunities for equestrian tourism throughout Europe. Compared to Western Europe, Hungary is an excellent destination for those who want to explore the region on horseback due to the vast amount of public open spaces. Because of this, the Kincsem National Equestrian Program was launched in 2012 to create a regulated framework for horseback riding in Hungary and to make riding in the countryside more possible by designing routes and developing the needed infrastructure.
According to the announcement, the program will designate four routes for riders in the coming years.
EuroHorse 1 has already been completed and will be accessible to the general public starting in 2022. Along the 1,800-kilometer route that runs through the country to the north, 31 equestrian reception points have been set up for horses to be fed and accommodated. People will be able to book these spots online. One such spot will also serve local school children by offering them riding lessons, they wrote.
