Hoefslag Masterclass

Hoefslag Masterclass is an annual masterclass with a theme that is recognizable and appealing for many riders. During this Masterclass we go for excellence in equestrian education, with riders from the Olympic team and professionals who are well known in their field. Last year the event was a great success; there were many horse lovers and it was a very enjoyable and educational day!

Marketing and event agency Equine MERC is in 2017 responsible for the organization and promotion of the Masterclass. This super informative day will take place on May 20th on the site of the Rotterdam Manège / CHIO Rotterdam. The 2017 theme is: Learn to understand your horse better.
