Four-legged fun at a farm horse race in Schwarzenburg.

The cheerful atmosphere of a folk festival and a love of animals is more important than where you place. Young riders and experienced cavalrymen face off in various disciplines. From pony to thoroughbred, many breeds are in action. The farm horse races have taken place in Schwarzenburg, canton Bern, since 1968. (Pictures: Christoph Balsiger, swissinfo.ch)
