This is a yearly traditional event in towns in the Kempen (Lilo, Stabroek, Zandvliet,...).
In short some drunk guys riding on a horse in farmer’s clothing trying to pull off the head of goose hanging on a stick. In these villages it’s a battle between men becoming King or Emperor.
Why would they do such thing? First of all it's a tradition. People do stupid things if it comes to traditions right?
We wrote a small report about our visit the ganzenrijden in Stabroek and some things you should know about this absurd folklore!
