After nearly one year of preparation, the delivery of Hungarian breeding and racing horses begin in China in early February announced the ministry of agriculture.
Initially, nine horses (three stallions and six mares) have been chosen and put them in a designated quarantine selected by Chinese officials, located at Szent István University Faculty of Veterinary Science site.
After arriving at China, the horses spend another month in quarantine, and they undergo the necessary tests once again.
The animals are expected to be transferred to their new owners on March 1.
The ministry of agriculture stressed that Hungarian horse export to China is expected to grow in the coming years, which is a recognition of the high standard of Hungarian horse breeding.
Due to their positive impressions, Chinese officials suggested the review of the permit protocol and the relaxation of the strict export rules. The Hungarian government will implement the new rules after the first successful delivery of the horses the ministry of agriculture reported.
