August 24-26, 2007
To inaugurate the Somogyi Lajos Recreational Center’s new horse driving field, Kunszallas hosts an outstanding equestrian event between August 24 and 26. The spectacular, new marathon field – Hungary’s best, without a doubt – was designed by Gabor Fintha himself, Chief d’Equipe of the horse driving teams and the pairs.
The Kunszallas inaugural horse driving competition is also the final round of the Duna-Tisza Regional Championship for category “B” pairs and teams.
