'National Gallop', Downtown Horse Racing & More, 15 - 17 September
The biggest equestrian festival in Hungary is arranged every year in Budapest at the majestic Heroes Square. The first National Gallop was held in 2008, and since then it became a popular event filled with local culture, and featuring action packed horse races.


From the organisers:

Just imagine. Heroes’ Square, transformed into a racetrack with 6,200 square meters’ worth of special equine-friendly sand. Grandstands in front of the two museums that flank the square, the biggest screens you’ve ever seen broadcast- ing the action, flags flying – the excitement will be palpable...

And they’re off! Young jockeys, modern-day hussars on horseback, tear around the track. Hooves are pounding, dirt is flying, the crowd is cheering. Again and again, since as many as 250 horses and riders will compete for the 21.5 million forint cash prize, a glittering sword, and national glory.

There will also be mock horse- back battles, amazing archers shooting arrows on galloping horses...
