Day Trip from Budapest: Pusta Horse Show and Countryside

Budapest is a great city, but it can be quite overwhelming to the traveler. Its size and loud buses can drive even the most experienced urban traveler to the woods. So why not get out of the city and into the beautiful and colorful landscape of Hungary's plains (the puszta)? Here you'll be able to lounge on the Danube and Tisza rivers, and gain a deeper understanding of the Hungarian countryside.

We had booked an excursion to the horse show last year when we were on a Danube cruise, but it had to be cancelled because we were delayed. We booked this weekend in Budapest especially to go to the horse show and we were not disappointed. The skill of the horsemen is remarkable and the discipline shown by the horses, not forgetting the donkey, was truly amazing. It was good to be able to visit the stables afterwards and to see the other animals too.
I went on the tour on Tuesday the 26th. Although I was the only one on the tour that day, I had an amazing time, my guide I had was very funny and absolutely full of information not only about the horses but about the surrounding town and Hungary as well. I fully recommend it! The lunch was delicious as well! :)
Fantastic day. The bell music in the city of Kecskemet was unique, the guest welcome at the Horse Farm, the activities and the horse show were superb! Lunch at the beautiful restaurant was not only the most delicious meal, wine, and dessert, but plentiful and five stars rating!
Very knowledgeable guide. Pick-up at the hotel. Good and nice driver - we took the minibus. Beautiful horses, Very good chicos and musicians who entertained. Good food and wine. Lovely yard with old houses and history. Small store. Countryside.
An unforgettable day in the Puszta. Our tour guide Klara told us a lot of interesting things on the bus ride, but the highlight was the cool horse show, good food, lovely gypsy music, just great overall.
