Carriage Driving World Cup and the Whisperers in Budapest

The FEI Carriage Driving World Cup, counting as the Formula 1 of equestrian sports, is a major sports event every year in the horse racing world, not by chance the Trophy was again from Herend this year!

The best carriage drivers compete against each other in different venues. On December 1st and 2nd, before the World Cup competitions in Budapest, the world premiere of the equestrian show “Whisperers” was presented to spectators starring three great horsemanship experts.

The world’s three most famous horse trainers performed together in a show for the first time: Monty Roberts known as The Real Horse Whisperer, Lorenzo the flying French and Jean-François Pignon foal tamer showed their horse training techniques to the public.
“Whisperers” is a special story about a wheelchair-bound young child, who dreams he can ride a horse one day. The performance shows how the boy’s dream comes true and gives an insight into the secrets of horse training. Guest appearance of the show was by the Hungarian National Ceremonial Hussar Squadron.

The winners of the Budapest World Cup competitions could lift Herend Trophies again this year.
