Visiting Maikel van der Vleuten in images - part one
Wednesday, 28 May 2014
The Van der Vleuten-yard is situated in the beautiful countryside outside the town Someren, The Netherlands. Here's Maikel out walking VDL Groep Aristo Z after a jumping session. All photos by World of Showjumping/Jenny Abrahamsson.
The outdoor ring is walled in by green hedges and trees.
There are two indoor rings at the yard, here's the one attached to Maikel's stable.
The fields (without horses this day due to extreme rain), that have a huge canter track around.
One of the lounging rings.
Bix boxes for all horses to enjoy.
Of course also with a nice view.
Despite the rain, the horses were happy to stick their heads out for some fresh air.

Tidy and organized!
The other indoor that can be watched from inside the lounge-area.
