Sometimes horses played a much larger role in their everyday life than today, as the horse meant primarily to survival. Horse health was very important, and at the end of the 18th century, it was customary to ask Holy Stephen for happiness and health.

Since 18th century the event became traditional. Every year, on 26 December, on Saint Sefan day, people gathers in front of the church to bless their horses.
