The Magic Spell of Parforse Hunts

Opava’s Dalibor Gregor Publisher has released a new book entitled “Parforsni hony a jejich kouzlo” (The Magic Spell of Parforse Hunts). This unique and truly exceptional full-color book release is the reader’s guide to a beautiful yet exacting horse-riding event, which boasts a spectacular tradition and is staging a comeback to the Czech Republic, winning ever more admirers and upholders.

The magic spell and tradition of parforse hunts, their rules and conventions that must be honored, hunting codes, sigequipment, parforse hunting dog breeds – all of this is discussed by a real connoisseur and specialist, Horst Richter, an active parforse hunter and member of ASBACH FOXHOUNDS – one of Germany’s best-known hunting associations.

In the second part of the book, prominent Czech actor and horse lover Vaclav Vydra reflects on how he and his horses discovered the beauty of parforse hunts which he says should bring joy to both riders and animals.
