Every third Tuesday in October is "Zuidlaardermarkt", the biggest horsemarket in Europe. They were expecting 170.000 people to visit this year (to compare, the town of Zuidlaren has about 10.000 inhabitants).
As always I took the day off and went early before the big crowds.

Thats a big horsemarket.
Is it just the horse trading or also lots of other festivities?
I remember that when we still lived in Vianen, they had once a year a "paarden markt" as well, however, that had become a family reunion day, with very little trading going on.:)

That's so cool! At first, I didn't see any of the humans in the photo....I just saw the horses!
