SPECIAL SALE: CREW WC2023 OUTFITS
Have you've been part of our crew or did you feel part of our crew (as we all did 😄, right?) but you don't have our outfit yet? Then come to De Breidablik (Oirschot, NL) this Sunday (September 3) for the Sunnanvindur club competition and buy one of the CREW shirts, jackets, hats, beanies, or put an offer in on a WC2023 wheelbarrow.

And for everyone in other countries: we love you all, but it's on sale in Oirschot only, we will not be shipping anything out. Maybe you know a Dutch friend nearby who can go shopping for you (just a hint 😁). See you Sunday?

Ik ben er zondag. Dus kan wel meenemen. Ga later in het jaar ook nog naar Wortel wedstrijd.

Hebben jullie misschien wel vast een lijstje met artikelen en prijzen voor de thuisblijvers die iemand op pad willen sturen?

Zou geweldig zijn zo'n mooi jasje in New Zealand te dragen 🤩. Is er iemand die er een voor mij kan kopen? Betaling te regelen en verzenden naar familie in NL en via hen komt het in NZ!

HELP WANTED!
Yes, the WC2023 is really over. We are blushing with all the positive reactions and compliments we receive. Thank you!

And we are still hard at work. The dismantling is now in full swing and the grandstands and Markaður are (almost) gone. This means a lot of rubbish comes to the surface: tie wraps, bits of wood, string, plastic and lots of sigarette butts. All things that we do not like to have in a pasture where (soon) the horses of the Breidablik will be back to graze. That's why we have a clean-up morning on Sunday August 20th and 27th.

Would you like to help? Many hands make light work, so you are more then welcome on these two Sundays between 10:00 and 13:00. We end the tasks with a delicious lunch. Please let us know if you would like to join via a short mail to volunteers@wc2023.nl. Will we see you then?

IT’S A WRAP!

After waiting four years for new World Championships it was clear that everyone – visitors, volunteers, exhibitors, press, sponsors, officials and the organisation itself – were really looking forward to the 2023 World Championships for Icelandic horses in Oirschot.

We’ve posted a wrap-up of this fantastic week on our website, with all the highlights and special parts that made #WC2023 the incredible event that it is.

Next up: WC Icelandic Horses 2025 - Birmenstorf CH.

See you in Switzerland 🇨🇭!
