The Royal Friesian Horse Studbook (KFPS) has never had the privilege to announce 100 days before the start of the event that the tickets for the Stallion Inspection are sold out for the Saturday. The members of the KFPS were given the first choice and massive use was made of this and the first 10,000 tickets had already been sold in the first month. The public sale started on Monday 30 September at 9 a.m. and within an hour the remaining 550 tickets were sold.
The events of the KFPS have grown enormously in popularity in recent years. The Stallion Inspection is always sold out, but never this early before the start of the event. The music & show evening FRIESIAN PROMS is also very popular and the tickets sale is tremendous. There are still tickets available for the FRIESIAN PROMS and this is not sold out yet, but this is expected.
The concept as KFPS presents its events is popular and in combination with the popularity of “our beautiful Friesian Horse” it is growing. More than 25,000 visitors from all over the world visit this unique event which takes place in January at the WTC Expo in Leeuwarden. The program of the Stallion Inspection & FRIESIAN PROMS is interesting for a broad target group. During the day the arena is for the Friesian horse, with inspections of young stallions, an educational program and the traditional Stallion Inspection. In the evening the arena is transformed into a true concert hall full of music with live orchestra and top artists such as Marcel Veenendaal, lead singer of Di-Rect, The Bluebirds with Elske DeWall and of course the Frisian horse that is also represented as a top artist.
Do you still want to come and taste the atmosphere? That is still possible. Tickets are still available for the FRIESIAN PROMS 5th edition and because it is an anniversary edition, you can enter the FRIESIAN PROMS during the inspection days on Thursday 9 or Friday 10 January free of charge when you purchase a ticket.
Still no ticket for Saturday 11 January for the Stallion Inspection? No worries. The Stallion Show will be broadcasted live on Saturday via TV Omrop Fryslân & internet www.omropfryslan.nl. On Saturday 11 January you can make a choice to follow the Stallion Inspection via Dutch / German / English or Frisian comments. The Friesian Proms will not be broadcast live, but of course there will be images and videos after the event.
