2019 and 2020 Four-in-hand Nations Cup in Valkenswaard





         After the successful edition of the Nations Cup for Four-in-hand horses in Valkenswaard 2018, the Dutch Equestrian Federation has allocated the CAIO4*-H4 status to Driving Valkenswaard International (DVI) again for 2019 and 2020.

DVI 2019 will be held from 29th May to 2nd June on the grounds of Exell Equestrian in Valkenswaard.


A show of trust and appreciation


         "We are very honoured that the KNHS have placed their trust in DVI and given the committee a fantastic opportunity to once again organise our four-star event,” says host and organiser Boyd Exell. “This is the fourth edition of DVI and it continues to be a driving competition for the very best international drivers and teams. The four-star status means that drivers will receive extra points towards their World Cup qualification. But above that, this is a show of trust and appreciation to organise a competition of this level which wouldn’t be possible without the continuing support from Sponsors, the local Valkenswaard Gemeente and our hard working crew”.


Top International Drivers

         During Driving Valkenswaard International the best of the international driving sport (pair and four-in-hand) compete against each other in dressage, marathon and cones. Five-times World Champion Boyd Exell, who competes for Australia, will be contesting the individual title. Competitors with teammates of 2 or 3 in total may compete in Nations Cup and Individuals divisions concurrently.


Free entry for the entire family


         Driving Valkenswaard International offers a five-day program that features more than just spectacular equestrian sport. A thrilling Bicycle Challenge and the popular Tug of War, where competitors challenge each other with a real test of strength and stamina, will feature again. There is free admission to the Driving Valkenswaard International event and there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy including children’s attractions, a large shopping village with food, drink and lifestyle concessions alongside some of the worlds best Athletes and their beautiful horses competing for the Top Spot in the world of Carriage Driving.
