Battle of the queens

    Cultural Bataille des Reines Les Houches


      On Sunday 29 September 2024 from 09:00:00 in 18:00:00
      Les Houches (74310)

      12:30 Lunch break - refreshment bar & on-site catering
      1:30 pm: Wrestling resumes
      4pm: Finals

      Please note: the duration of the fights depends solely on the performance of our female fighters. The times are estimates only!

      The aim of the game for the breeders is to get the Queen! Cows are sorted by age and weight. The local match offers a maujons category (young, non-pregnant cows), heifers (pregnant but never calved) and three "adult cow" categories: light, medium and heavy.
      Cows who don't know each other systematically want to know which of the two will be the leader. We don't force them to fight. If one of them refuses to fight, she's submitting to the other.
      Each category brings out its Queen. Its owner then wins a beautiful bell, made in Chamonix by Devouassoud or in the Swiss Valais (by Vaquin, Anivier, etc.) or in the Val d'Aoste; the leather is always beautifully decorated with shiny nails and other colorful designs.


      Free access.
