The Park and the horse
The Park has been closely linked to the horse since its inception. Founders Anton and Helene Kröller-Müller enjoyed riding on horseback for a ride in their Park, alone or with guests. The current director of the Park continues this tradition with Park relations with some regularity. Two private pack hunts are also held every year, where bloodhounds are hunted on a runner. The Park has extensive equestrian routes and route maps for riders are available free of charge at the entrances. There are several connection points with water points in the Park, where riders and their horses can rest for a while.
