Today when we look across the Domony Valley everything is beautiful. Everything is pleasing to the eye and soothing to the soul. But it wasn’t always like that.

   To put it mildly, the circumstances couldn’t have been described as exactly comfortable reminisce the two men. Some dilapidated houses, some ramshackle stables and sheep pens, and an uncared for site. In a nutshell there was everything except beauty and comfort, yet there was just a promise that these might also unfold for at the very first sight both felt that there was ”something waiting to be discovered” in the valley.

     Action followed on the heels of the idea. The Lázár “machinery was put in motion” and the boys dedicated all their free time to creating their new home. Results soon appeared, in 2001 the competition stables and the Old Lodge were built, the kitchen was operating, the horse track was ready, and the animal yard populated.

     In the last few years more had happened and was happening on the nine hectares than in the previous thirty or forty years. The following year, 2002, was spent in increasing the estate. The New Lodge was built, the Hunting Hall, and the kitchen essential to all gastronomic activity was also enlarged.

     In fact what came into being is what they themselves love: the beautifully cared for land, the hoses, the best of Hungarian dishes and wines complemented by excellent Hungarian hospitality to the sound of music in a great atmosphere.

     The complex of the Old and New lodges and the adjoining Hunters Hall, is situated on the highest point of the Lázár Equestarian Park and can comfortably sit up to 500 guests at any one time.

     Special attention was paid when designing the lodges to ensure that the entrances and toilet facilities are easily accessible for handicapped people.

     In the World Champion Hall you can see the choice fruit of the driving career of the Lázár brothers, Vilmos and Zoltán, including 12 World Championship gold medals, and gold, silver and bronze medals from other competitions also shine in the display unit. Here, to mention just a few, are displayed countless cups, presentation vases, horse statues, and certificates.

     At both ends of the Hall are the coaches used by the brothers for competition driving, marathon driving and obstacle course driving.

     There are two stables in the Park, which provide a home to more than 70 horses. One group of the horses (mainly the Lipica) has an important role in training and during championships, while the other group are regular performers in the horse shows. When a horse becomes old and retires from driving he has a golden life as the brothers, understandably, do not want to part from him, as they know very well how much the horse contributes to their success.

     One popular part of the farm is the farmyard. In this mini-zoo we have collected some samples of the traditional Hungarian farm animals such as the long-wooled racka sheep, the special mangalica Hungarian breed of pig, the grey and long-horned cattle, poultry, and the puli, the corded coated Hungarian sheepdog.

     Every day, by prior arrangement, we hold a Horse Show for a minimum of 20 guests, at 11.30am and 5pm. At these times individual guests are also welcome by prior arrangement.

    On arrival at the park guests are welcomed with fresh scones topped with crackling, a fruit brandy or mineral water.

The Horse Show programme

Four hand drive, pony driven carriage

Display of nomad warrior archery - archery on horseback, throwing a spear, jumping through fire

Skills of the horsemen – making the horse lie down, cracking the whip, competition between the horsemen

Competition involving the guests – knocking a bottle with the whip

Cart pulled by four oxen

Display by funny trained donkey

Puszta-five

Horse display of „Queen Elizabeth” in costume, sitting side-saddle

At the end of the programme the guests are invited to mount the horses, or to take part in a pleasant coach trip through the woods as well as visit the Lázár Equestrian Park.

The programme is presented in Hungarian, German, and English as required.

The programmers by night is the same as the daytime programmers.

The coach driving World Champions, the Lázár brothers or Gábor Szegedi World Champion introduce you to the rules.

The order of departure is decided by a draw and then everyone goes around the course. (The guests are escorted over the course by the Lázár brothers, to see the course they will have to follow in the obstacle coach driving race.

The winner is the person who completes the course in the shortest time with the fewest mistakes.

An official commentator helps the spectators and drivers follow the event.

The obstacle course was built in adherence to the rules of the International Equestarian Federation (FEI), and the results are judged in accordance with international regulations.

As a safety precaution, a groom sits on the back. In Domony Valley Zoltán Lázár, Vilmos Lázár and Gábor Szegedi are responsible for this task, thus guaranteeing a drive which is both safe and exciting.

The results are announced at the end of the competition. The winner and runners-up receive the Lázár Equestrian Park awards and a personal certificate signed by the World Champions.

If anyone thinks it is child’s play to drive the two superbly trained and obedient horses, then they are sadly mistaken. In fact, only pair driving is permitted as it requires many years’ experience to master the art of four-hand horse coach driving.

Two years ago, just before the Hungarian Formula 1 Grand Prix, members of the BMW Williams team came to try their luck at a new sport. They finished the course, admittedly with the help of our grooms, but they were just as pale at the end as when scorching over the racecourse at 200kph. Their only comment, the bigger horse power is safer...
