(Kecskemét - city tour, horse show and lunch with wine in a farmstead)

This 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.
