On the 21st September we had the honor to welcome Princess Kako from Japan on the Stud Farm.
The Princess visited us on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of establishing the Japanese-Hungarian diplomatic relations. Ambassadors from Japan visited Bábolna 130 years ago to choose horses for the Imperial Court, where we can still find horses out of Hungarian bloodlines.
Escorted by István Nagy, Minister of Agriculture, Gábor Haál, Director of Bábolna National Stud Farm and Dávid Cseri, referee, Princess Kako visited our Horse Museum that is looking after the hundreds of years old relics of the Stud Farm and the stud yard, then the visit continued with a ride on our five-horse carriage representing and keeping alive our traditions till today. After this we had the opportunity to present the horses bred on the Stud Farm – Salamat B, Purebred Arabian, Gazal XIX-2 Shagya-Arabian and Firsty, the Thoroughbred – in our historic Riding Hall.
