HestFest will end in the initiators' country: the Netherlands! On the 8th of August, they brought HestFest to a close.

The Netherlands' activities

The Netherlands has prepared a few awesome little video's with activities that are fun, simple and can be easily done from your own home. 




The second video in the series is the lovely Anna who shows us how to make a Dutch braid! 🥳 It isn't just pretty but can also be very nice for the horse to cool down a bit during the muggy Dutch summers! 🥵

The Netherlands is not only known for being very flat, but also for its rain. The Dutch have therefore perfected their ability to enjoy themselves indoors. We will share a series of small video's with activities you can do at home or at the stables when it's pouring outside. 🤩 The first video in the series is; how to bake your horse some delicious cookies! 🥰 --------------------------------------- Horse cookies; Ingrediënts - 150g oats - 225g apple syrup - 1 Apple - 1 Carrot Cut the apple and carrot into small pieces. Watch out, the knife is sharp! Put the carrot and apple pieces in the bowl. Then add the oats. Mix it all together. Then also add the apple syrup. Mix this all together until well combined. Place the baking paper on the baking tray and then take some of the mix from the bowl with your hand. Put it on the baking paper and make a shape with your hands. After you have all your cookies on the baking sheet, take the baking sheet and put it in the oven. Set the oven to 180 degrees and let them bake for about 10 minutes. Carefully remove the hot tray from the oven. Let the cookies cool down. Then they are ready to be eaten. And if your horse, by some miracle, does not like them? You can always try them yourself! 😉 (Music 'Jungle' by Norimaki)
