Boarding at “De Oude Meerdijk”

Dressage and boarding stable “De Oude Meerdijk”is situated in a central yet peaceful part of Emmen just minutes away from the town centre.

At our stables the welfare of the horses always comes first. Therefore all the animals have spacious, bright, clean and airy stables. All the stables are provided with a window that can be opened. Each horse also has its own paddock. The horses can be placed in paddocks individually or, in consultation with the owner, in groups.

Lessons are taught by Paulien Alberts. She is a qualified O.R.U.N-instructor, who herself rides dressage at Grand Prix level. She teaches all levels from beginner to Grand Prix level. Each year we also offer the opportunity to take the O.R.U.N. instructors course with us.
