Smart ladies, dashing boys ... and their blondes. With the latter, the elegant Haflinger horses are meant, which freshly groomed once a year stroll through the city to the racecourse to compete in the traditional Haflinger gallop race! The Haflinger gallop race always opens the racing season at the racecourse in spring.
Every year in spring the traditional Haflinger gallop race takes place at the Merano racecourse. The entry of the horses (and their riders) takes place through a solemn procession through the old town of Merano.
