Yesterday me and the boyfriend drove to the south of the Netherlands for a gig that he had there. We weren’t planning on staying there, but we saw or I saw that the Reitsportmesse Niederrhein (horse event) was this weekend so I kindly asked if we could go there today.
This conference is a bit like Horse Event in the Netherlands with several clinics and loads of different shops. I mainly went there for the shopping as the clinics and shows are held in very small arenas and not really super interesting to me.
The main difference compared to last year was the offers. Last year you could buy Eskadron saddle pads for 20 euro in all different colors, while this year the prices were a lot higher. I also thought there was a lot of shops with the exact same stuff. Last year you could get a bit more variation and more upscale brands. So I ended up coming home with nada, niks, nothing.
It’s the perfect event to go to for people who need to buy a lot of cheap product for a schooling stable for example or your first horse. I was hoping to find a green saddle pad, but could unfortunately not find it.
Ah well, we had a nice day together and that’s more important then shopping 🙂
