The true traditionalist and cultural festival nowadays is the Hortobágy Horsemen’s Days
More than twenty thousand visitors are expected at the 53rd horsemen’s muster at Hortobágy between July 12 and 14.
The competitions in show-jumping and driving teams of 5 or 6 horses hitched to carriages are not missing from this year’s programmes either. The fight of horsemen lasted for three days. The novel thing of it was that not only Hortobágy horsemen fought for the first prize, but several other horsemen coming from all corners of the country. The county seat of Hajdú-Bihar County joined the organization of the Horsemen’s Days three years ago. Ever since, the event that once was just a horsemen’s show, has gradually become a kind of traditionalist and cultural festival.
