In the heart of Transylvania, in a fairy tale landscape, lies the village of Prod where this weekend the Transylvania Horse Show is taking place.
The Transylvania Horse show is an international equestrian event which this year reunites 60 competitors from all over the world.
Equestrian acrobatics, the derby contest, creative ateliers, traditional food and the stunning scenery all make this event a highly anticipated experience. The show will start on Sunday morning with the traditional chop sound and continues later with doinas and etno rock music. Here, you can still live what you read about in books, or heard about in your grandparents’ stories.
I had the chance to see a preview last week, including equestrian demonstrations and even a ride myself with an instructor. The horses were so friendly and loving and next time I’ll have carrots or sugar with me.
See you this weekend! And don’t forget the carrots!
