From 25 until 28 November Peelbergen Equestrian Centre will host the original CSI Youth of Lichtenvoorde. Normally Jumping de Achterhoek was supposed to take place at these dates, but due to new COVID-19 measures announced last Friday, the international shows at PaardenSportCentrum Lichtenvoorde unfortunately cannot take place. “We would like to thank the OC of Lichtenvoorde and the KNHS for the opportunity to host this event once at Peelbergen Equestrian Centre on this date. After the sad news that Lichtenvoorde will be cancelled, we had a look into the possibility to still host a youth event with the OC of Jumping de Achterhoek” says Sherin Hogenkamp, Event Director of Peelbergen Equestrian Centre. ”At Peelbergen Equestrian Centre classes can be distributed over two indoor arenas, which makes it possible to organize the event in such a way that all classes can be finished in time, according to the new COVID-19 measures.”
Many young riders planned to combine the CSI Youth that takes place this week in Opglabbeek, with Jumping the Achterhoek one week later. To give these riders the chance to still jump two weeks in a row, Peelbergen has decided today – in good consultation with PSC Lichtenvoorde and the KNHS – to organize the CSI Youth from 25 – 28 November at Peelbergen Equestrian Centre.
