Guided tour

Welcome to the almost 230-year-old Bábolna National Stud!

The guided tour in the Stud begins with the Horsemuseum, where you will be introduced to our history through relices and ornated cups stored in the showcases. Harnesses of the different driving styles, the instruments of the orchestra and many other interesting and rare tools can be seen.

The guided tour continues in the Studyard. Underneath the shady trees of the park, you can see the unique sight of the castle building. A life-sized horse statue, the sculptural portraits of our great commanders and the symbol of the Stud, the old acacia planted in 1710 can be found in our nicely decorated yard with fountains. The two wings of the castle continue with the stables, where you can meet our purebred Arabian and Shagya-Arabian stallions and mares. The impressive Riding Hall is in the middle of the yard, and our Coach Museum is placed next to it.

After the Studyard, you can visit the Arboretum, where you can find indigenous wild and domestic animals and the Memorial of the Famous Horses, which is unique in Europe. The paddocks of the Foal Farm are next to the Arboretum, where the foals of this year can be seen together with their dams.

Horse activities

Our programs provide a great opportunity to show the unique appearance of the Shagya-Arabian and purebred Arabian horses.

Carriage show and stallion presentation

We present a five- or four-horse carriage and a two-horse carriage to our guests, who may also try the vehicles of the gentlemen in the past centuries during the program. The noble characteristics of our horses and the famous bloodlines are presented with two purebred Arabians and two Shagya-Arabians. The light but energetic horses are astonishing the audience every time.

Duration of the program: approx. 0.5 hour.

 

Carriage ride

Starting from the Studyard, our guests may enjoy a ride to the nearby Arboretum with a carriage pulled by two Shagya-Arabian mares. The park looks different from the high seat, the carriage ride is a unique experience for both children and adults.
