Il Palio di Siena occurs annually on the second of July and the sixteenth of August. It is a traditional horse race which is conducted over a set course throughout the city. The event is attended by many and is widely televised. The race is a very dangerous one, as there are often a great deal of horses and riders packed into narrow streets. In order to better protect the horses, steps have been taken to make veterinary care more easily available during the main race.
