A successful 8th edition of Outdoor Horst!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Last week was the first edition of Outdoor Horst 2024. Five days of great sport with lots of sunshine, but also lots of rain. Despite the changeable weather, the atmosphere remained as good as ever. The competitors were extremely enthusiastic and look back on a successful event.

Like the previous edition, ClipMyHorse was on hand on Saturday to capture the cross, resulting in stunning drone shots!

On behalf of the organization we would like to thank all participants, officials and of course the indispensable volunteers for their efforts. We look forward to welcoming everyone again at our next edition from May 29 to June 2, 2024. Until then!

After a year, we were back with 2 weeks Outdoor Horst in a row. With a lot of competitors and good reactions, we look positively back on these editions.

From the CCI-Intro to the CCI4*-L, all classes went by during these editions. The riders were very enthusiastic, as Outdoor Horst was the start of the season for many of them.

We had a lot of sun, but also a lot of rain at our venue Equestrian Centre De Peelbergen/Grandorse. Luckily the ground could handle it really well and our volunteers were diehards.

For the first time, everyone was able to follow the great sport of Outdoor Horst live as the cross-country was broadcasted by ClipMyHorse.

We would like to thank all our competitors, offcials and volunteers to make it to a great show again. We hope to see you all again at the next editions of Outdoor Horst; 31 May – 4 June and 25-29 October. So save the date! The cross-country of both these editions will be broadcasted as well.

Outdoor Horst August unfortunately cancelled.

After two fantastic weekends in March and April, the organization was looking forward to the summer edition in August. The number of participants was overwhelming these two weekends.

Due to the disappointing number of participants in the weekend from 25 to 28 August, the organization is unfortunately forced to cancel this edition.

We are very sorry  to disappoint participants and fans of this beautiful sport. We are going to work in good spirits to organize another great eventing competition in October!

Outdoor Horst also Dutch Championship Young Riders & Juniors

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

There is a new date for the Dutch Championship Eventing for Juniors and Young Riders. Due to the cancellation of the Achterhoeks Equestrian Festival, the KNHS had to look for an alternative location for the championship for eventing youth. The Dutch National Championships have now found worthy accommodation at Outdoor Horst, which will take place from 25 to 28 August on the grounds of the Peelbergen Equestrian Center in Kronenberg.

Third time is a charm

Originally, the National Championships for Juniors and Young Riders were on the program of the Renswoude Horse Trials. That event was canceled in May, after which the Achterhoeks Equestrian Festijn picked it up. Unfortunately, it was recently announced that this event will also be cancelled. The KNHS is therefore pleased that the organization of the international eventing competition in Kronenberg is adding the eventing championship to the program.

Beautiful location

A championship-worthy location awaits the participants in Kronenberg. The dressage and jumping take place on the beautiful sandy soils and the cross is held in the forests of Grandorse.

National coach Marcelle de Kam: “I am happy that a solution has been found and that an NK is still being held for the youth. Kronenberg is a prime location for this championship. In addition, it is great that we can once again award the Copain Prize to the winners of the NK Young Riders and Juniors.”

Program (provisional

25-26 aug 2022           Dressage

27 aug 2022                Cross-Country

28 aug 2022                Jumping

Save the Date! 25-28 August
