2006 Horse rescue operation
In 2006 following a storm nearly 100 horses were stranded on a small mud island. Eventually they were rescued after seven women equestrians organised by Norma Miedema through an internet forum rode out through the water and then rode back leading the horses to safety (Susan Fransen riding Blizzard, Micky Nijboer riding Berber, Antje Dijkstra riding Humphrey, Hinke Lap riding Guinever, Christina Stormer riding Perfeft and Fardow de Rueter riding King). A memorial was subsequently erected to mark the bravery and ingenuity of these women.
