What to Bring for Great Carpathian Trail Ride


Here is a summary of the necessary equipment for your holiday with us:
- Walking shoes - comfortable and run in shoes that are waterproof. Please NO rubber boots, sneakers, western boots or riding boots. Since we have to negotiate stretches on foot in the mountains, sometimes over scree / unpaved roads and through water, good footwear is absolutely necessary!
- Rain trousers - waterproof and large enough to be pulled over riding gear and shoes quickly and easily.
- Raincoat or rain jacket (no soft shell)
- Headlamp - Please also think of a few spare batteries!
- Riding helmet - if this is difficult to bring, this can be borrowed from us. We recommend our guests wearing their own riding helmets.
- Sunscreen
- Power bank
- Towel
- Water bottle
- Bathing suit
- Enough plastic bags to protect clothes etc. from getting wet.
- Personal medication (a standard version of the most important drugs and wound care as well as emergency medications for allergies, etc. are taken with us on the rides)

Please note:
The luggage should not weigh more than 8 kg, as we may transport it on the packhorse or with us in the rear saddlebags.
Our rear saddlebags are big enough to carry the most important things  such as spare clothes and personal medicines (each bag measures 35 x 30 x 12 cm).
Rain gear, drinking bottle, day food and camera can be stowed in the front saddlebags (20 x 17 x 10 cm each).

Clothes for arrival and departure, important documents, etc. can be left theft-proof on the farm.


For the nights that are spent camping, a good quality sleeping bag is required as it can cool down in the mountains at night (up to 10 degrees Celsius). Once packed, the sleeping bag should not be too big as we may have to fit it in the rear saddlebags.
All camping gear for your camping overnight is provided, including plates, knives, forks, spoons and cups and glasses, tents and mats.

It is suggested that you do not bring your good leather riding boots with you, but rather a rubber pair as it can be quite wet in places.
