HUNGARIAN HORSE SHOW
Your private guide picks you up, you give Where & When at bookingVisit the farm and Equestrian Park of the Lázár brothers, winners of many carriage driving championships. On arrival at the park guests are welcomed with cheese-scones and fruit brandy. We take a horse-pulled coach ride through the peaceful forest, fields and hills. The carriage drops us off at the World Champion’s Hall, where a short film introduces the carriage driving competition, and you can admire the Lazar family’s golden medals and winning carriages. From here we walk through the farmyard and the stables. The stables house 70 horses, many of them won competitions, and in the farmyard, traditional Hungarian breed animals greet you: the long-wooled racka sheep, the mangalica pig, (low cholesterol!), the huge grey cattle, poultry, and the Hungarian sheepdog, puli.
Sitting down on benches in the shade, the Horse Show begins. The stars are the Hungarian horsemen, who will demonstrate the 1000 year old Hungarian horse keeping and riding customs. You will see archery on horseback, the traditional fighting method of the old Hungarian tribes. The main attraction is the Puszta-five: a horseman riding 5 horses in the same time!
You can have a full, typical Hungarian lunch, called the Shepherd’s menu: a cauldron of Hungarian goulash, custard pie with apricot jam, a glass of white or red wine, mineral water, and strong a espresso coffee. As always in a country restaurant in Hungary, gypsy music is played during lunch. The 5-member gypsy ensemble play the violine, the viola, the double-bass, the clarinet, and a very unusual instrument, the hammer dulcimer (cimbalom)
Please note the entrance and lunch at the farm IS NOT INCLUDED IN PRICE, see extras below.
The Lázár Horse Farm is 40 minute ride from Budapest (car, minivan, or coach). Finish the tour in Budapest, or other destination with similar distance.
Popular tour combination: Gödöllő + Hungarian Horseshow in a day trip.
If you would like to do horseback riding in Hungary, I recommend my collegue and friend Christina. She regularly organises horseback riding tours in Hungary for visitors. You can go horseback riding near Budapest for a few hours, or even do a week long riding tour in Hungary. Send us a message, and we connect you to Christina.
