(Kecskemét - city tour, horse show and lunch with wine in a farmstead)
excursion is very popular among our guests because it also offers a lot: real
Hungarian romance in the Great Plain, the experience of old horse breeding
traditions, a presentation of Hungarian horsemanship, folk music and special Hungarian food and drinks ... Although we
experience a program organized for tourists, everything is authentic: the horse
herders (Hungarian 'Csikós') wear their traditional clothes, show their skills
in riding as they did centuries ago; the gypsies play original Hungarian folk
songs,and you get typical Hungarian dishes and drinks on the table ... First we
drive to Kecskemét to visit a local farmstead. At the Varga Farm we are greeted
with barackpálinka (apricot schnapps) and pogatschen (savory biscuits). Then
there is a carriage ride into the area, a riding demonstration (about three
quarters of an hour) and a good, sumptuous, three-course lunch with an unlimited
amountsof wine. As part of the riding demonstration, we experience the famous
"Puszta-ten". The Puszta-ten (at the begining "Puszta-Five") is the most
dramatic and spectacular part of the horsemen's show. The idea came from
Austrian painter Ludwig Koch who painted an imaginary picture about five horses
and a horseman standing on the last two of them, driving them forwards. This
was a challenge to Hungarian horsemen who saw the painting, tried to imitate it
and thus invented a tradition.
The Csikós horseman then show us the art of whip-cracking with the 2-2.5 m long Puszta-whip.
