  • Travers Horse Facility is located in the south of the Netherlands. The location offers an extensive network of international competition venues, such as Equestrian Centre de Peelbergen within walking distance, while Sentower Park (Opglabbeek, Belgium) is 60km away. There is easy access to main roads and the airports of Eindhoven, Amsterdam and Aachen are nearby too.
