She’s a brunette, and she is alive. She is a horse, but she is a real f*cking princess.
Just because local restaurants and pubs are opening their terraces it doesn’t mean the pandemic is over. You can support them ordering online, and I really encourage you to do so, if you can. But seriously, why not eat your favorite food at home?
Meanwhile if you feel like you must leave the house and meet the people you missed the most during lockdown, there are so many other options to spend time with your family and friends, without exposing yourself or them to any risk. Saturday we went horseback riding with one of our friends. We had such a great time, even if we kept our distance and we only touched our horses and nothing else. After the ride we could wash our hands with soap and fresh water, even dry them with paper towels, and drink a glass of cold, homemade, delicious socata from disposable cups, of course.
Accidentally, I ended up riding the only rescued horse. Or was it meant to be? 🤭
Anyways, it was love at first sight, and since we decided to go back regularly, I will always pick her. Until the next time princess Diana! Can’t wait!
Here is a list about what you will need to know if you consider to go horseback riding:
- Rides are appointment based. You can make an appointment here.
- Prices are totally affordable (80 RON/h)
- The place is close to the city (about a 15 minute driving distance from the city ceter), but just far enough to enjoy the ride in nature. The place is easily accessible with a car (on a dirtroad, but it’s totally fine for any car).
- No, you don’t have to have any experience with horses or riding.
- If you are a beginner or if you are afraid, don’t worry, they will help you out. It’s their job to keep you safe and teach you the basics. If necessary they can also walk near you to help you manage your horse until you learn to do it on your own.
- You don’t need any equipment, they have there everything you need.
- Horses are well trained, incredibly patient and kind.
- Bonus: It’s totally dog friendly. Horses are used to dogs, and they don’t mind to share a walk with them as long as they can behave. But of course, you are the only one responsible for your dogs, and all the problems they might cause. You should only take them with you if they are fine with horses, other people, and walks without a leash as well.
