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!
