Travel Theme: Move (Hungarian Horse Shepherds)

While in Hungary in '03, we visited a place that does demonstrations of the famous Csikos 'horse shepherds' of the Hungarian plains.

From the first moments when the horses came galloping in driven by a whip snapping Csikos, it was all about moving very fast.

The specialty... Roman riding a five-in-hand team.  At a dead gallop.  Around a huge ring.

Once they got the horses moving at a breakneck pace, they just stood up there like they were waiting on a bus or something!
