Sa Sartiglia takes place in Oristano on the last Sunday and the last Tuesday of Carnival. The horsemen gallop through the narrow streets of the town centre to spear with their swords a silver star hunging across their path. At the end of the race for the stars, the event continues with horseback acrobatics. The horsemen divided into groups of three, perform breathtaking feats and displays on horseback.
