Thursday Video: Snoop Around One of the World’s Leading Dressage Barns

A couple of years ago, in the height of the pandemic, I stayed in the Netherlands for two weeks at the base of Olympian Tim Lips, helping British rider Mollie Summerland to train and prepare for a crack at Luhmühlen’s CCI5* in Germany. What happened next is history, really, but one of the things we spoke about frequently while sequestered in our peaceful little Dutch enclave was how cool it would be to find a way to visit Van Olst Horses, the base of Denmark’s Ann Van Olst and, of course, young British superstar and reigning World Champion Lottie Fry. We never did get a chance to head over — the pandemic made things like that pretty tricky — and so today, I’m making myself a massive cup of tea and curling up on the sofa to get the behind-the-scenes tour through this video. Which facilities would you take – and what would you add? — to create your dream property?
