The second edition of the Dutch Eventing Young Horse Trials will take place in Renswoude on Saturday 4 July. The first edition, on 30 May, was followed by almost 9,500 viewers through the Nieuws.horse live stream. There was particular interest from viewers in France, Germany and the UK. On 4 July, 56 young eventing horses will start.
“We’ve had a lot of compliments from abroad, and that’s really nice to hear,” says initiator René van der Leest. “We set up the competition in order to be able to offer a good training process to the best of what we breed here in the Netherlands. And to put them in the spotlight so that breeders, riders and owners have a great showcase. Judging by the number of people from various countries who watched, it looks like we are increasingly achieving our goals. It’s also nice to see that a number of owners have already registered their young horses for the ET Auction Dutch Eventing Edition in October.”
Saturday’s edition, on 4 July, can also be viewed through live stream https://www.nieuws.horse/live. This time, commentary will be in the hands of Dick Stuip, well-known from such events as Military Boekelo, together with René van der Leest.
