The numerous successes of the KWPN horses around the world have drawn the attention to the Dutch horses. The Olympics, World cup finals, the Global Champions Tour; the successes are the best advertising the KWPN can get and that is what the KWPN wants to underline as an organization with good accessibility and service.

In addition to the international success of KWPN horses, the Netherlands has become a global leader in many facets of essential, qualitative equestrian management, such as good nutrition, professional horse training, horse-friendly stabling, veterinary care, and transport – all of which are practiced at world-class level.

The Netherland’s success formula is its total equestrian package, as the country has everything horses and riders need to succeed. This is the premise upon which the Holland Horse Foundation was built. The Foundation is an association of leading Dutch equestrian businesses, which bundle the expertise of various specialists to deliver custom solutions.
