Monday Video: Behind the Scenes at a Top Show Jumping Barn

Are you ready to take a walk through an actual dream barn? Enjoy this tour courtesy of Matt Harnacke and HorseWorldTV around Stal Tops in Valkenswaard, Netherlands, home to show jumping power couple, Australian rider Edwina Tops-Alexander and her husband, Dutch rider and founder of the Longines Global Champions Tour, Jan Tops

Stal Tops backs right up to Stal Tops Equestrian Center, a world-class competition venue complete with a grandstand and everything. The stables themselves are just as impressive as the competition area, but this barn is likely nothing you may have pictured in a barn before. The tack room kind of looks like a high-ride board meeting room and the stables is also home to a vet clinic with two full-time veterinarians working on site. Just a few of the many amenities Stal Tops boasts are a water treadmill, outdoor walker, and not one but TWO ginormous heated indoor arenas with a built-in sprinkler systems.

Enjoy the video (and try not to be too jealous!)
