The Gala show: don’t miss it!

You really don’t want to miss this! The Galashow starts after a full day of sports on Saturday August 12 at 19:00. It’s a real treat for young and old, a showcase of the best of what (Dutch) equestrian sport has to offer with international highlights thrown in. And of course our beloved Icelandic horses are included too.

The lineup is impressive: the Dutch Vaulting team, Fryske Quadrille, Future Guys, dressage to music by Sanne Voets, authentic horse-drawn carriages, IJsbrand & Bram Chardon and last but not least liberty dressage by Pierre Fleury.

Focus on Breeding: tutorial 6 – 10

In the run-up to the WC2017, Isibless.nl offers extra insights into an important part of the WC: breeding. Starting Monday August 7, the best breeding horses in the world will be assessed and judged. But what do judges consider during confirmation, when they are evaluating the exterior?

Bram Vervest and Bram van Steen, responsible for breeding during the WC2017, want to make breeding accesible to everyone. Together with international breeding judge Tom Buijtelaar and Isibless.nl they shot a series of videos explaining all aspects of the confirmation. Thank you Isibless.nl for making this beautiful material available.

Today we share the second and last five videos from a series of ten (sorry, Dutch only).
