Sa 12 Aug 19:00, tickets € 19 – € 24You really don’t want to miss this! The Galashow, a treat for young and old, is 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. We will not give the complete program away just yet, but read along for the lineup.
The Dutch Vaulting Show Team consists of a number of international top vaulters some of whom even belong to the top 10 in the world.
Dutch Vaulting team
A show team of Frisian carriages: 16 proud Frisian horses, hitched to 8 gigs each of which with a couple dressed in Frisian costume while performing a dance to music! Unique in the world!
The Fryske Quadrille
The team is widely known and performs throughout Europe. They show the well-known spectacular stunts from the old western movies and rodeos. Some dangerous stunts show the rider’s guts and the trust between horse and rider. Don’t blink your eyes!
Equestrian sport is Sanne’s greatest passion. She is active in the international dressage for riders with disabilities. Sanne became Dutch, European and World Champion! In September 2016 she added the Paralympic title to her track record.
Dressage to music
Our Dutch heritage is passing by: carriages, carts and horse-drawn sledges from around 1850 to 1930. A wonderful procession of traditional horse-drawn carriages, shiny horses and coachmen and passengers in matching clothes make for a wonderful spectacle.
Authentic horse-drawn carriages
Father and son have for many years been enormously successful in the world of driving horses. They each drive a beautiful four-in-hand and have won several Dutch and international Championship titles.

The young Frenchman Pierre Fleury grew up among horses. His show is dedicated to liberty dressage. In his communication with the horses he only makes use of body language and vocalizations. With his beautiful Highland horses Pierre Fleury concludes the Galashow in a magical manner.
