Sub-Association for horses
Members: 133 ±
Horses Breeding Club, PFC, is the horse-oriented sub-association of the Study association "the Veetelers". Although the name suggests that we mainly deal with breeding, at the PFC all aspects of the horse industry are being discussed.
Throughout the year we organize excursions to various horse shows, clinics and stud farms. In addition, a beginners class will be held annually and a lesson or clinic for advanced riders place will take place. Organizing interesting and fun activities, the PFC is of particular interest that there may be something to be learned. Therefore, we do our best to visit especially innovating companies and profide as much information as possible and give a look behind the scenes. In this way, our members will get even more practical experience in the horse industry. We also organize an annual informative themed symposium or discussion evening where a topic is discussed about the 'horse'. All this is made possible by the financial support we receive from our sponsors Pavo and Equisport Projects.
In the academic year 2016-2017 we organized different excursions. We visited Jumping Amsterdam and drove to Den Bosch to visit a stallionshow. We also organized a syposium about "the ultimate horse". Furthermore there was a clinic for experienced equistrians and an excursion of different housing systems.
What can you expect this year? Of course, the annual beginners class is on the schedule. We will visit Pavo and there will be a yet unknown educative excursion. In the fourth period we will celebrate our 6th lustrum. We will organize a excursion for experienced equistrians, a symposium and an educative excursion.
If you want to expand your knowledge of the equine science besides studying in Wageningen, join the PFC!
