Special horses

Mieke van Tergouw likes to welcome you during the ‘Riant driving-sporthorses presentation’ at Achel-Statie 97, 3930 Hamont-Achel, Belgium. Riant presents an exclusive offer of six top-horses. This elite group of horses can be shown on the spot. By appointment you can also see them in harness and interested buyers can try the horses themselves. Which horses will be presented is yet still a surprise, but for sure there is a pair that’s ready for the highest level in driving sport. If you would like to see even more horses, you can also make an appointment to see the whole collection in Beekbergen.
