High ranking for Breda and Beekbergen

The international pair and team drivers award the Dutch international driving competitions Breda Hippique and Beekbergen with the second and third place in the election of Best Driving Event 2009. The unbeatable four-in-hand event in Aachen won the election again.

This yearly election is done by the prestigious equestrian yearbook L’Année Hippique. Over 25 shows were judged by the drivers for the organisation, facilities, volunteers and officials, stabling, atmosphere, spectators and prize money.

The international driving event Beekbergen Apeldoorn takes place from 4 to 8 August 2010 at Riant Equestrian Centre, home of World Pair Champion and organiser Mieke van Tergouw.

Breda Hippique is one of the biggest equestrian events in the Netherlands and takes place from 2 to 5 September 2010. The programme includes national and international competitions in four equestrian disciplines; eventing, driving, show jumping and dressage. In 2010, Breda Hippique will host the Para Equestrian Driving Championships as well.
