The „Kufenstechen“ is an event that takes place in Feistritz an der Gail in Carinthia, Republic of Austria during the annual Kermesse on Whit Monday. The task of young unmarried men, riding on bareback Noriker horses, is to smash a wooden barrel with an iron club. The men have to ride past several times before the barrel is destroyed. Finally, when it is broken, the winner receives a wreath of flowers which he puts on his wrist. Directly afterwards the traditional dance under the lime tree can begin. The winner of the „Kufenstechen“ begins the dance and the other unmarried couples, wearing the traditional Gailtaler folk costumes, join them. The dance is accompanied by very old traditional songs.
