This year's riding season will officially open on Saturday,February 28, 2015 with a
Šemík memorial ride
from Radotín to Neumětely, to the grave of the famous horse of Czech legend. In addition to the historic (or legendary, anyway) mount of Thain Horymir, we shall also commemorate his namesake (photo on the left), who passed away last July in Winnipeg, mourned and fondly remembered by our own webmaster. More details about the ride will follow, watch this website.
To all our friends, a successful New Year and in 2015 many happy hours in the company of hucul horses! Hucul Club, 1st January 2014
The Hucul Club history pages were updated with a number of interesting "shards of history", mostly from 1980's (and some later ones). Many thanks to O.Haberle for sharing archival material. Although the text is in Czech, photographs speak for themselves and are well worth seeing [click here]
The celebration of the 40th anniversary of founding of Hucul Club was a roaring success. More than 200 people participated, congratulations - both to Club itself and to Ralf's 87th birthday - came from far and wide, and everybody had a grand old time. Some of the media responses are linked from the Czech [older news] pages.
As an additional bonus, several friends of the club dug into their archives, and found various old photographs and news articles documenting interesting periods in Hucul Club's history, including the beginnings of endurance and distance riding, western riding, participation in Czech Pony Express memorial rides, and medieval re-enactments of knightly horseback combat
Our "international helpers" from C.I.S.V. went home, after yesterday's closing celebration. They all liked it here very much and have done an awful lot of useful work for Hucul Club. A big THANK YOU to them all. The hucul horses gained a number of new fans from all over the world
And the last term of this year's camps for children started. May it be just as successful!
Following successful conclusion of the second term of the camp, we welcome an international team of helpers at Zmrzlik. The participants came from far and wide: Norway, England, New Mexico, Lebanon. The get-together is organized by the Czech International People´s Project - part of the CISV International (www.cisv.org). The project has its own website, including a photo gallery, at http://czechipp2012.webnode.cz/ . We wish them all a pleasant sojourn and lots of useful work accomplishments.
