"Transylvania Horse Show is one of those typical explosions of imagination, enthusiasm and performance that Romania doesn't fail to put forward every now and then in various fields, thus aising international awe, admiration and applause. If a mere 3 years ago Transylvania Horse Show did not exist and Mihnea Vargolici was an enthusiastic nobody, today the two names, alongside Romania, are reference points in student riding competitions and have rightfully earned the award "best student riders' competition in the world". In the short history of this equestrian feast, it has become traditional to have a few horsemanship acts, where the elegance and poise of the horses marries the art, coreography and mastery of the riders, in yet another expression of the mythical symbiosis between man and horse. With so many challenges ahead, accepting the proposal to support Transylvania Horse Show is nothing short of an honour and a privilege" - Mircea Tudor, Honorary President of Transylvania Horse Show." – Mircea Tudor, winner of the Grand Prix of the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, who was present at Transylvania Horse Show 2013

His Excellency John Morahan, The Irish Ambassador in RomaniaMihnea’s vision in organising last year the Transylvanian Horse Show makes an important contribution to the Romanian Government’s ambition to attract tourism to this region of Romania particularly. As a horse lover myself, I can say without hesitation that last year’s Horse Show was staged to the best international standards. Many of the Irish student competitors who travelled from Ireland for the event spoke to me of their sheer delight at discovering Romania, and, no doubt, this explains their decision to return in even greater numbers this year. Their common theme, as they expressed it to me, was pleasure in their beautiful surroundings, and complete confidence, from a competitor’s point of view, in how the event was organised.

As a spectator myself last year at the Transylvanian Horse Show, I was strongly impressed by the number of families that attended the event over the three days. Watching the pleasure and excitement which the competitions generated for the spectators, it seemed to me that this event was unique in providing a large number of people with the opportunity to rediscover Romania’s historical love of the horse, and to take pride in their own countryside. The Transylvanian Horse Show, in other words, helps to reunite Romanians with the very best in their own heritage. – His Excellency John Morahan, The Irish Ambassador in Romania
