There are limited places on this trip. Booking is only open to those aged 18 years of age and older. Places are allocated solely on the basis of completed booking forms and deposits paid (with GTI), first come first served.
The outstanding performances of Irish Sport Horses at Lanaken in recent years have made being there an exceptionally enjoyable as well as informative experience. It is a melting pot of breeders, riders, and young horses from across Europe and a great place to network. ( 2019 Results: http://www.wbfsh.org/GB/WBCYH/Jumping/Results%202019.aspx) The hope is that we will witness further success for the ISH at Lanaken in 2020.
The farm visits will encompass breeding and production enterprises, visiting a combination of larger commercial yards and smaller successful breeders. A more complete itinerary will be available in due course, for now a sample of the farms which are on board to welcome us are listed. This will be added to with a view to a diverse and interesting itinerary.
Typically days involve early starts leaving the hotel for anything from 8am and returning by 6pm, with a minimum of two and generally three farm visits per day. Lunch costs are not included in the price and are purchased locally. Jacques Verkerk will accompany the group Monday- Wednesday whilst visiting the farms (see attached flier).
