Committee of Recommendation

The Living Horse Museum has found a number of ambassadors willing to commit to the organization. We strive for a balanced combination of local, cultural and equestrian figureheads.


We have the ambition to set up an international network of equestrian monuments or organizations around us in the coming years. By joining forces we can learn from each other and set up joint activities.


The Living Horse Museum runs almost entirely on voluntary efforts. Do you have some time to spare and do you have a warm heart for the Hollandsche Manege? Register now!
