3/9 Elster Horse market

It is almost September, the first Monday of this month is more than 750 years of history worthy known as the Elster horse market!

(Make sure you are in Elst mail street at 06:00 am to see traditional horse selling!)

The Elster Paardenmarkt market is still a lively event. In recent years more than 1,250 horses and ponies have always been supplied.
This event is one of the last authentic markets with an economic function where large numbers of horses and ponies are still traded. A place where horses from all over the Netherlands come together and from where they pass the world. Besides KWPN riding and harness horses, there are Friesian and Gelderland horses, Tinkers, Shetlanders and riding ponies but also a multitude of other foreign breeds and species in all colours and sizes. For many a new chance for a fine boss, unfortunately for others a semi final station.
