Rádiháza is located in South-West Hungary, in county Zala, 50 km far from Lake Balaton, 26 km far from Zalaegerszeg, between the villages Tófej and Gutorfölde. The pastures surrounded by forests and gently sloping hills are exquisitely adequate for keeping and breeding horses.
Horse breeding was started here by László Bartha in 1912 with 7 mares, and Kabala Ménes Ltd follows this tradition.
