The Academy Bartels, Dutch Premium Horses and China will work together on a new system in China for the development of equestrian sport. The Bartel’s Academy will support the training of riders and horses basend on the Rabo Talentplan from the Netherlands. Time and again Dutch riders will fly to China to have a look on the couples. At first it is Imke Schellekens-Bartels who will work there for ten days.

The stables there must be huge, 500 people are there to work. The Dutch rider reports that it looks like a complete city with a five star hotel, restaurants and a vet clinic. The trainings centre is based in Xinquio in the province Jiangsu close to Shanghai.
