The Saint Jacob Horse Market is held on the Wednesday of the week of July 25th. On that day between 70 and one hundred horses and ponies are brought to the market in the morning. There, in the Kerkstraat, they stand on long ropes and can be inspected until noon. At 10:30 AM the inspection of the horses and ponies begins, by a horse inspector from Zwijndrecht. They are divided into three categories. Prizes are awarded for the most beautiful horses. During the market there are all kinds of side-activities.
