Boekelo international horse trials in the Netherlands have taken a unique approach to advertising, with a mock romantic video clip guaranteed to catch attention currently doing the rounds on the internet.
As a happy couple take a romantic cycle through the woods, they decide to indulge in a bit of ‘horseplay’ in a pond. Literally, it turns out, when their moment is interrupted by a discerning looking grey horse – and its equally unimpressed rider – sploshing through the water.
The couple has in fact stumbled across a water jump on the cross-country course.
The Military Boekelo Enschede takes place in Holland next month (6-9 Octover) and hosts a CCI***. British riders entered include Oliver Townend, Zara Phillips, Matthew Wright and Tina Cook.
