In the section dedicated to curiosity, today we want to talk about the controversial fair in Skaryszew, in Poland, the largest horse market in Europe.

For three centuries, every first Monday of Lent, breeders, traders and butchers from all over Europe, especially from Italy, come to this town for a historic feast in which one of the most contested markets is placed by the movements in defense of the animals.

In fact, today only the date and place remain of tradition: among the rivers of vodka, folk music and food binges there is no mention of the mistreatment under the eyes of all towards these animals destined for export to other European countries, where they will be then slaughtered.

Often coming from rural areas where they are no longer needed, horses are sold at affordable prices. And what once was the pride of Poland, that is respect for these beautiful and proud animals, today is measured in one to one kilo.

In the middle there is a privilege granted to the merchants of the city by the Polish king, in 1633. The Tara Foundation describes the event as follows: “ we eat stews with sauerkraut, sausages, lard, lard for people to eat everything with taste. The fat drips on the minds of the traders, a sea of ​​vodka is drunk, all accompanied by the rhythms of folk music. Here is Lent in Poland, the most Catholic country in the world “.

In recent years, it seems that abuses and ill-treatment have significantly decreased, we hope that respect for these wonderful animals is at the base of the entire process of sales and trade.
