The Importance Of Equestrian Tourism Enterprises In Tourism Destination Management In Hungary
Hungary is the pioneer of the European Equestrian Tourism. Several thousands foreign tourists visited specific equestrian programmes already in the 1960â€™s and 1970â€™s. At the same times some hundred thousands of holiday tourists visited equestrian shows and programs organised in different areas of our country. From the beginning of the 1990â€™s equestrian enterprises (pensions, stables, specialized equestrian services) have been established. The equestrian tourism enterprises are well represented all over the country. They are well organised, the Hungarian Equestrian Tourism Association integrates 80% of equestrian tourism enterprises. Uniquely in Europe, the voluntary professional qualification, called â€œthe horseshoe qualification systemâ€ started in 1998. The most common quality categories are for entrepreneurs are 3 or 2 or 1 horseshoe. The system of Tourism Destination Management organizations could provide the background for the development of equestrian tourism enterprises as well. At local level these needs would be product development, the quality control and quality management, at regional level the most important aims could be the development of regional equestrian image and increasing the attractiveness of this image, finally hardening the positions of equestrian tourism destination.
