Video: Hungarian Csikós Proceeded Cowboys
Before cowboys roamed the American West, there were Hungary’s Csikós. And on the Puszta—the country’s great plain—these traditional horsemen carry on their legacy.

For centuries, whip-cracking horsemen in Hungary have been caring for their horses and cattle while practicing death-defying riding.

The riders live in relative isolation in ranches that dot the plains. Although only a few Csikós are left in the region, Adam Bordás and his father János are keeping this proud tradition alive.
