Excursion to the Wild West with the children’s adventure world
A horse-friendly children’s experience world is firmly part of the PARTNER HORSE and makes it an experience for the whole family. Little horse fans go in search of a big treasure while mining gold in Hall 3 and put their talent to the test in the cactus throwing game. When crafting hobby horses, children can let their creativity run wild and the rideability of the new hobby horses is then immediately tested on a course. In the action ring, the first experiences can also be gained on a real horse’s back with the sweet ponies from Reitstall Köhler. It becomes artistic with the airbrush painting campaigns of Living Colours or wooden donkey crafting with Noteselhilfe e.V. at the respective stands in exhibition hall 3.
Changed access and sustainable travel
In order to reduce energy consumption, the glass hall is not part of the event space used this year. This also changes access for all visitors arriving by train or bus. You can get directly to the PARTNER PFERD via exhibition hall 1 and thus have even shorter distances. For all visitors arriving by car, access via the entrance hall East is recommended.
