StraƓ Noordwelle 2019 (II)

How deep can we go šŸ˜³šŸ˜³šŸ˜³

 

What is StraƓ

StraƓ is an annual event on a number of Saturdays in the late winter and spring, where the feet of the horses in the sea 'washed'. The villages on the west side of Schouwen-Duiveland have their own straƓ celebration.

 

An annual village festival where the feet of the horses are "washed" in the sea. The villages on the west side of Schouwen-Duiveland all have their own "StraƓ viering". Eight weeks before Easter.

 

Between the fifty and one hundred heavy Zealand horses are driven into the sea on a number of consecutive Saturdays. The riders in traditional outfit. The horses are decorated and decorated with wreaths of flowers. The heavy hooves raise the water high, the sand thrusts in all directions as the colossus shake in the direction of water. What is called impressive?
