National Gallop

Held for the 13th time between October 10-11, 2020 on Heroes’ Square in Budapest, the National Gallop is a horse race with a historical atmosphere based on Hungarian traditions. Every year, 72 jockeys – winners of the nationwide and transborder qualifying rounds – measure up their horse-riding skills on the unique race course in the heart of Budapest. The National Gallop is Europe’s largest amateur horse race with a total prize money of over €30 000. Programs demonstrating riding skills and heritage entertain spectators on the stands featuring jump racers, carriage drivers, trick riders, horseback archers and hussars between the competition rounds.
