International Horse Trials

Eventing Emmeloord (CIC 1* en CIC 2*) will take place on Friday 20th July and Saturday 21h July 2018. The event is staged in a stunning location: Kuinderbos, a beautiful forest in the province of Flevoland near Kuinre and Emmeloord. The conditions are great for both horse and rider because of the unique combination of open landscape, wide sandy roads, natural water and firm, resilient footing. The first day begins with Dressage in the morning and a Show Jumping test over knock down arena jumps in the afternoon. Saturday is  the day for the Cross Country phase. On Saturday, there will be outdoor trade stands, outdoor catering and lots of activities for young and old.

Alice Naber-Lozeman, Dutch Olympic and international event rider:

‘Characteristic of Eventing Emmeloord is the unique combination of natural water, wide sandy roads with great galloping opportunities, and excellent views of the obstacles in Kuinderbos. As the cross-country course runs over a former seabed, the ground is firm and resilient, which helps prevent injuries. I strongly recommend that riders with young, less experienced horses enter Eventing Emmeloord as it is a great, instructive cross-country course that helps your horse to grow in confidence!’

The cross-country course is designed by FEI-qualified course designer Gerard Baauw, who has created two fantastic courses for the CIC1* and CIC2* competitions. Every year an extensive evaluation is made to make Eventing Emmeloord even better. An important adjustment for the riders this year is the Cross Country course. This year Eventing Emmeloord offers;

-  A more horse friendly course for the CIC1* for young horses with a lower level of experience. The course is build in a fair way that will   only use 30% of the CIC2* course. A nice start for (young) horses!
-  The flow of the CIC2* route is improved due to changes to give the horses a better balance.
-  The footing of the course is highly appreciated by the riders and we continue to make it even better.
-  The course contains forest, wide paths and beautiful natural water.

Hopefully we see you in Emmeloord (NED)!
