Horses and "Heytse"
Heytse has something with horses. This region has something with horses. According to the many maneges and riding schools that are to be found here, people have a long bound with mankinds best working friend, the horse. In front of the manucipality hall a statue of a white horse emphasises this bound, though I also heared the rumor about a legend that involves a witch that got scared away by a white horse eventually.
A visit to Heythuyzen is well of the beaten paths
Not many tourists or travellers will cross this place, but holding my roots I found it an obligation to myself to have it in my lists and promote it at least a little bit. The village itself is indeed not that attractive (especially after what they did to the place in recent times), but the "Leu-dal" national nature reserve is very nice for nature lovers or people that like to make a hike in a beautiful forest.
