Cyprian Race new style. Horse/pony combination competition where one of the two enters the water. On the beach of Midsland aan Zee you can experience the Cyprian race, a race with horses with a historic character. In the past, when word came that a ship was in distress, the beachcombers' blood surfaced among the islanders and the men with horses went to the beach as quickly as possible. One of those ships was 'The Cyprian', a ship that sank off the coast of Midsland. The Cyprian race honors this memory of the beachcomber race.
