At 1pm will start the race, with Su Compoidori, king of the carousel, where riders and horses, accompanied by drums and trumpets, they gallop in an attempt to put their thin sword inside the star hanging in front of them. The more stars the knights will take, the more chances there will be for the spring crop to be abundant. After the race to the star, in the afternoon, we will move to another road, where we will assist to the spectacular "pariglias", in which the riders, in groups of three, will perform acrobatics on their horses at a gallop.At the end of the celebrations, we will drive back to Cagliari.
