History

How it started

Once upon a time, there were a few enthusiastic friends, eager for sport and learning, who wanted to establish an equestrian centre where big ones and little ones keen to ride can acquire the art of riding under the guidance of a trainer.

We know from our own experience that in most places besides the harness (saddle, bridle), what the average rider who wants to learn can expect is only a little encouragement and an empty pen.

In a few places some basic conditions and safety requirements of training are ensured, but unfortunately this is not universal. (With a few honourable exceptions, where teaching is carried out with the contribution of real trainers and trained horses.) And not to mention, if you would need something like changing clothes, washing, etc.

The team, the enthusiasm and the plan was given, so we started up and on 16 March 1998 it came to life.

Some of our goals were:

Quality riding lessons for young people, therapeutic riding, show jumping training and racing, off-road riding, cross-country riding and to make the beauty of riding available to all people.

We spent the year of 1998 with the construction of the riding course, hurdles, and with a lot of training. In the same year, under the direction of József Babel, we managed to correct our riding mistakes. By that time, József Babel Jr. could compete for Mustang Horse Club in Üllő. In Category B he came seventh on Sudár out of 120 contestants.

In 1999, for the implementation of our plans, we managed to enlist Gábor Bálint who had just returned from Germany and Austria, and he became the club's coach. Under the guidance of our new coach, in the spring of 1999, Andrea Kiss and János Machay passed their show jumping competitors license exam in Százhalombatta.

That year we took part mainly in category C races. Three of our contestants were awarded thirteen times out of forty-four starts. Our five four-legged fellows helped them achieve their success.

With the help of our enthusiastic members, at the end of September we organized our first category C competition, which took place successfully amidst great popularity.
