Before cowboys roamed the American West, there were Hungary's Csikos. 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 Csikos are left in the region, Adam Bordas and his father Janos are keeping this proud tradition alive.
