The First Viewing in December 2017 is the first pre-selection of Friesian horses on the way to their much-coveted stud license. The programme kicks off on Thursday January 11th with the Second Viewing of the young stallions. On Friday January 12th education takes central stage offering a mixed and informative number of clinics presented in several languages that are freely available for everybody. There is a choice of informative lectures on theoretical aspects as well as clinics focusing more on the practical side with horses in the arena. The Friday afternoon also hosts the Third Viewing.
As tradition has it the Saturday is reserved for the Stallion Inspection of the registered Studbook stallions, with at the end of the afternoon the selection of the Champion as the final highlight. The programme will be alternated with a mix of show elements.
Two special concerts and show evenings with a wide selection of top performers, special effects and above all beautiful horse acts.
Friesian horses, spectacular horse acts and performances of many top artists (Douwe Bob, Elske DeWall, Alessandro Safina) are the main theme during two special concerts and show nights.
