Once again word must go out that the Stallion Inspection on Saturday the 13th of January is completely sold out. In spite of increasing capacity even more as compared to last year, the Saturday of the Stallion Inspection was sold out at an even earlier stage than the previous edition. Over the past few years the comprehensive event FADERPAARD, complete with the wonderful music & show evening FRIESIAN PROMS as well as the traditional stallion inspections, has been a real crowd puller.
The concept chosen by the Koninklijk Friesch Paarden-Stamboek to stage the event has proven to be hugely successful and greatly promotes the popularity of ‘our beautiful Friesian breed’. Visitors from all across the world are drawn to this unique event which easily lifts the total of the audience to over 25,000. The programme on offer appeals to a very wide target group. During daytime hours the arena belongs to the Friesian horse with inspections of the young stallions, educational features and the traditional Stallion Inspection, but for the evenings the arena is converted into a proper concert stage with music and top artists in abundance and a star role for the Friesian horse.
The popular Friday evening of FRIESIAN PROMS was already confirmed to be sold out in early December but tickets are still available for the Thursday evening. The VIP lounge was fully-booked within a fortnight and extending floor space for the attractive shopping village subsequently led to more applications, so that in spite of the increase in capacity this too is a complete sell-out.
At this point visitors can still book for Thursday 11 January (Second Viewing young stallions), for the educational programme + the Third Viewing on Friday and for a lovely evening out tickets for FRIESIAN PROMS are still available for Thursday evening 11 January.
