Horse Event moves to new location

The last three years, Horse Event was held at the National Equestrian Center in Ermelo, where it grew from 30,000 to 42,500 visitors. The location in Ermelo was not calculated on these enormous numbers. The narrow access roads created traffic jams and there was insufficient parking. Last year the organization also had to deal with extreme rainfall, which meant that Saturday had to be canceled. Enough reason for organizer Academy Bartels Event Management to adjust the course. This year Horse Event will move to Expo Haarlemmermeer in Vijfhuizen, near Schiphol Airport. The seventeenth edition of the educational horse event takes place on 14, 15 and 16 September 2018.

Expo Haarlemmermeer is a professional event location and offers an unexpected calmness and piece in the heart of the Randstad. In addition to a large outdoor area, there are spacious halls with a glass roof construction, which creates a special indoor experience. The location is easily accessible, with spacious car parks in front of the door and private bus lanes and bus stop. Every 10 minutes a bus leaves from the site Haarlem, Hoofddorp and Amsterdam.
