Transhumance of Haflinger colts at the Sandhof Farm
Wednesday 1 May 2019 in S. Leonardo/St. Leonhard
Every year the transhumance of Haflinger colts offers an unmissable chance to revel in the playful frolicking of the new Haflinger generations. Known far and wide for its spectacular sights, it is a much-photographed feast for the eyes and marks the annual arrival of new colts which will spend the summer together on the pastures of the Passiria/Passeier valley.
A day out not to be missed!
The transhumance of Haflinger colts has always been a very special event for breeders. On the day, some 40 colts meet for the first time and get to know each other through playful races and brawls. Galloping and bucking through the fields, they fight over the ranks within the new herd that will spend the summer months together on nearby mountain pastures. An unforgettable experience for all horse fans, the event is typically accompanied by mouth-watering South Tyrolean delicacies and plenty of live music.

Gallop races hosted by the Young Haflinger and Noriker Breeders' Association
Sunday 5 May 2019 in Sarentino/Sarnthein
Buckle up for the fifth edition of the South Tyrol Young Haflinger and Noriker Breeders' Association's knock-out gallop races! At 11:00 on 05 May 2019, the contest held at the Platzmannanger racecourse in Sarentino/Sarnthein will kick off with the three-year old mares' qualifying rounds, followed shortly after by the preliminary rounds in the Older Mares category. Building up to the final heat, a series of 500 m races with three horses each will decide who gets through to the next round for a chance to be among the finalists – and there's only room for three horses in the grand finale held in the afternoon. An attractive cash prize awaits every contestant who makes it to the finals.
But it's not just the races that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats: With great raffle goodies (top prize: a Haflinger foal!) waiting to be won plus plenty of good food and drinks, visitors will be in for a real treat.
The South Tyrol Young Haflinger and Noriker Breeders' Association looks forward to a fun day out with many contestants and a large crowd of Haflinger fans. See you soon in Sarentino/Sarnthein!
