In little over a month the first International show jumping competition will kick off with classes at CSI2* + CSI1* + CSIYH1* level. Due to the ingenious construction, mirroring two complete indoor arenas, it is possible for two competitions to simultaneously take place. The third huge indoor arena will be used for the warming up, whilst visitors will have a panoramic view of all three arenas from the welcoming foyer and elegant restaurant.
"In recent months we’ve seen an unprecedented number of participants in the national shows. We want to attract and welcome just as many International riders and give them the opportunity to ride here and experience the splendour which the centre is widely praised for", tells one of the Founders of the ECdP and former National Champion, Mathijs van Asten. "It is a fantastic complex where both the rider and the horse take centre stage. Our focus is and remains to create an ideal setting that brings out the best in all. In addition to this, for the riders, the grooms, the horse owners and all other horse enthusiast, we’ve created a wonderful atmosphere to lounge, eat, talk business and engage in the sport that is so dear to us all. We are expecting and hoping for a high number of participants and I am sure a lot of people will want to come and take a look at what it is that is creating the buzz. We have a fantastic organization that makes this all possible and we look forward to adding an extra dimension to this great centre."
The central location of Equestrian Centre de Peelbergen, near the German and Belgian border, offers an excellent training location during the week for all riders. Not only those situated in the vicinity, but also riders that are travelling or are in between shows can make use of the centres facilities and stable their horses close by. Adding five International show jumping events to the calendar will enable the ECdP to further strengthen its position as one of the most renowned equestrian centres ever built.
