Horse Breeding Club (PFC)

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, Equisport Projects and Agradi.
In the academic year 2015-2016 we visited the feed plant of Pavo. In addition, the annual beginners class was in the program and we organized a crossles for our experienced members. At the beginning of the calendar year we have visited horse slaughterhouse Nijkerk. In the fourth period a symposium in Utrecht about the Icelandic horse was held. In March, we visited stable Chardon. The year ended with the Binex, where we visited several businesses in Gelderland, like horse clinics, an equine and a western ranch. We were also able to relax during a ride outside and in a covered wagon. It was a very successful year!
What can you expect next year? Of course, the annual beginners class is on the schedule. We will travel to Den Bosch for a stallion show at the event Jumping Amsterdam this year. This year, a lecture will be held in Wageningen in cooperation with VHiVer (horse-oriented association of Veterinary Medicine, ed.). There will be an advanced clinic and another excursion is yet unknown. The year will end with a Buitex, an excursion for multiple days in a foreign country.
If you want to expand your knowledge of the equine science besides studying in Wageningen, join the PFC!
