Access to and shows at Peelbergen Equestrian Centre & COVID-19

These rules have been drawn up in accordance with the corona measures of the Dutch government as of 28 November 2021.

Peelbergen Equestrian Centre is allowed to organise both individual trainings as well as competitions/shows at national/international level. In order for these competitions to run smoothly, we would like your attention for the following rules.

Corona Access Ticket (QR-code)

In some places in the Netherlands (e.g. at a sports competition, an event and in the hospitality industry) a corona ticket is required. This also applies to all competitions, shows and events at Peelbergen Equestrian Centre. During a competition, show or event at Peelbergen Equestrian Centre, your QR code will be scanned upon arrival at a main entrance. During CSI’s we work with only 1 main entrance; accessible through the entrance gate opposite of Emmers Ruitershop. During national events, trainings (including PRO Tour and Peelbergen competition) we work with 2 main entrances. The previously mentioned main entrance opposite Emmers Ruitershop and a second main entrance at the truck/visitor parking near the stables.

Face mask mandatory in all public indoor spaces

In addition to the Corona Access Ticket (QR-code), it is mandatory to wear a face mask in ALL PUBLIC INDOOR SPACES; also in public indoor spaces where a Corona Access Ticket is required, it is MANDATORY to wear a face mask. This also applies to the ENTIRE INDOOR ACCOMMODATION of Peelbergen Equestrian Centre. That means in all indoor arenas (persons helping during the warming-up), on all terraces, in the restaurant and in the show office it is mandatory to wear a face mask. The face mask may only be taken off when sitting on a horse or when sitting on a chair/stool/bench. We kindly ask you to follow the advice of the Dutch government.
