The National Gallop Budapest
The National Gallop in Budapest at Heroes Square is an annual cultural event celebrating Hungarian traditions. It's a horse race reviving Hungarian military history and the famous "huszár'' culture. The center of the event is the national horse race, but there is also show jumping, polo horse match, special coach-driving race, free horse riding where Hungary's towns and villages prove their horse riding skills.
The main event though is the Gallop itself with brightly dressed Huszárs racing their horses chariot style around Heroes Square. This is at breakneck speed, with the horses inches apart resulting in an exciting, dramatic contest.
