Haflinger horse race
Region: Meran and environs
The popular and well-attended Haflinger horse races takes place every year on Easter Monday at the race-course in Meran in South Tyrol.
After the race is before the race. In addition to the horse race itself there will be also an attractive supporting program: In the morning, at 10.30 am, there is a Haflinger parade in the centre of Meran, accompanied by music bands and floats.
Between one and another horse-race people will be entertained with Western-riding, a trotting-race and a race of three-year stallions. It will be exiting!
About the Haflinger horses:
The Haflinger horse is a robust and tough horse race. Sooner than actually working animals bred sled around and floats to draw, it is now a good horse. The Haflinger is attributed to be attentive and good natured.
The horse can therefore be applied for therapeutic purposes. Norbert Rier (lead singer of the very popular band Kastelruther Spatzen) is probably the most famous South Tyrolean Haflinger holder.
