The small, picturesque mountain village of Jósvafő is playing host to the 7th Annual Hucul Horse Festival August 21-23, 2015. The festival takes place in the heart of the Aggtelek karst, and in 2015, is under the patronage of Minister of Agriculture Sándor Fazekas. The annual races feature one of the largest gatherings of the local hucul breed of horset.

The event is unique in that the hucul horses take part not only in traditional obstacle course (Hucul Path), show jumping and carriage driving competitions, but a farrier contest will also be held and scored by a renowned eam of judges. The farrier competitions will be held in parallel with the horse races, including both events for both amateurs and professionals. These events include horse shoeing, forging horseshoes and the ―Eagle Eye‖ contest, creative forging, and the exciting Group Wine Uncorking Contest (Racing against the clock and each other, competitors must forge appropriate tools and open the bottle without breaking it). Evening concerts and other activities will be held celebrating Jósvafő’s Village Day starting the evening of the 21st. Full programme will be available here soon.
