THE staff


van broekhoven

I am Sam van Broekhoven, 19 years old and I live in Cromvoirt. I am a student of business administration and have a passion for the equestrian sport. Because of this I enjoy gaining experience at a professional dressage stable at the weekend in addition to my studies. It is very nice to work at Schelstraete with the horses, they are all very sweet and there is a nice (relaxed) atmosphere in the stable. Of course it is nice when you can work with nice quality horses. One of the horses I like the most is Kapri Son, because he is a super sweet and handsome horse, and I think he resembles my own horse the most.



Esmee Stuurman (22 years old) works as stable staff and groom at Schelstraete Dressage. She says: “I like working with horses, especially at Schelstraete Dressage. All the horses here are so well behaved and sweet. That makes it very nice to work with them. The stable is professional and all the horses are very talented. My favourite horse is Kavallo; he is so nice and sweet to handle, but under saddle he is such a fiery and talented horse.”
