LOCATION on the North side of Lake Balaton in the village of Barnag,

PROGRAM an intensive program for those interested in combining equine
studies and visual arts. We are looking for artists interested in horses,
as well as riders interested in art. Both weeks will include daily practice
and lessons of horsemanship, horsearchery, anatomically correct riding.
Discussions and lectures will be held with the main focus on fine art
research and there will be also possibility for making studio based work.
The program is focusing on different research themes each year. This year’s
theme is the History of riding - Rethinking art history. The program is the
second in a series for years to come. Guest lecturers will be invited,
excursions will be organised, research papers will be published and
documentation is planned to be exhibited at the Doctoral School of the
Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, Budapest.

AIM to deliver our interest into the field of international artistic
research with opening up connections between equine culture, art and
sustainable development issues. We would like to rethink art today in
relation to horsemanship and riding.

PROGRAM LEADERS Veszely Beáta is an artist and researcher and Szmrecsányi
Márton is a professional horse trainer and horsearcher. Both are dedicated
to research the knowledge of old riding masters and to develop their riding
