Tomorrow the carriage driving world will be turning their heads to the Netherlands for the much anticipated international three star combined driving competition, Driving Valkenswaard International (8-11 June), sponsored by Europe’s leading equine feed manufacturer Dodson & Horrell.
The event has attracted over 75 pair and four-in-hand drivers representing 18 different countries who will be competing in the stunning home of four-time World Four-in-Hand Driving Champion and Dodson & Horrell Brand Ambassador Boyd Exell. On the main show grounds in Maastrichterweg, just outside of Valkenswaard, eight marathon obstacles, dressage and cones arenas along with warm-up rings have been built. The obstacles have been designed by four-star course designer Jeroen Houterman and will definitely provide a challenging test.
Dodson & Horrell CEO Sam Horrell said “As a keen carriage driver myself this is an exciting event for us to add to our extensive sponsorship portfolio. Branching into this international competition that is attracting the world’s best carriage drivers is a great opportunity for us to meet and talk to our new and existing international customers. We can’t wait to watch the action that this event is going to deliver.”
