Horse Day

Do you know that there have been horse protectors among hallow saints? Theses saints' names are Flor and Lavr. They were brothers and they used to live in the Balkans. The legend says that after the relics of the saints were brought to the place, horses stopped dying of disease. Since then the saint brothers have been depicted with horses on the icons. The horse holders celebrate the Horse Day on the 31st of August. There is a tradition to decorate horses, to give them treats, to take them near the church and to give them rest on that day.

Kharkov Zoo together with pony-club "Radis" have prepared a bright event dedicated to the Horse day. 30 August at 13.00 you will be able to see a performance of kids' equastrian theatre, to enjoy exhibition of horse photos of Natalya Zhurbina, to participate in the equestrian quiz game as well as in funny relay race. The event will start with fascinating show-jumping performance. Brave disciples of the pony-club "Radis" together with their hooved friends will show you flight of... horses.
