Monday, 13 April 2015 Four stars in dressage for Outdoor Gelderland

The Gaston and Kathrin Glock family make it possible

For eleven years now, the Outdoor Gelderland international equestrian sports event (June 30th till July 5th 2015) in Arnhem, has been one of The Netherlands’ most important events. A lot of things have changed since it first took place in 2005 and striving for continuous improvement was always paramount. Now 2015 stands as another milestone for the organisers because, for the first time, the Outdoor Gelderland dressage events will be at four-star level. This upgrade was possible due to support from the Gaston and Kathrin Glock family.

The Gaston and Kathrin Glock family are well known in the world of Austrian and international sports for their generosity to and love of equestrian sports. With the international show-jumping and dressage tournaments at GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER Austria, as well as the Gaston Glock's Championats and Grand Prix, which are held in selected events, the Gaston and Kathrin Glock family have set new standards in Austria. The relationship with The Netherlands and, in particular, with dressage at Outdoor Gelderland, arose three years ago due to the Dutch GLOCK Team of Edward Gal, Hans Peter Minderhoud and Nicole Werner. This year too, the two  GLOCK stars will be part of the event in Arnhem.
