more than horses...

Alongside the ground there will be a presentation of antique 'coaches', typical English sports carriages with four-horse span, belonging to the Private Driving Club with passengers in historical costumes. Royal carriages, cars and sleds can be viewed from close by in the stables and coach houses of Paleis Het Loo.

A professional jury will choose the winner of the Best Pony Award from over 70 polo horses. For the youngest visitors there is an exciting Kids Pony Race in the afternoon. Also the Hat of the Day Award will be presented on both days. The jury will mingle incognito among the public. The dress code is ‘Summer chic’.
