Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event.
At the end of each interval, the organizer rings a bell, clinks a glass, or blows a whistle to signal the participants to move on to the next date.
We have introduced a small entry fee to help us raise vital funds to care for the 100 horses, ponies and donkeys at our Home of Rest for Horses.
We welcome visitors and have kept these charges as low as possible.
