The blessing of horses

 

When horses come to receive a blessing... 

 

At the end of December, the traditional blessing of horses takes place on the Day of St. Stephen.

This old custom of the ancestors is being carefully preserved by the inhabitants of Kranjska Gora

On the name day of the patron saint of horses St. Stephen, a procession of horses together with their owners heads to the Church of Dovje. The procession is worthy of your attention: some horse owners are in the saddle, others in a rack wagon, and some walk next to their animals.

 

In front of the church, every horseman and their horses are blessed by the priest of Dovje
