DHC offers a full service to help you find the perfect jumping horse on the Dutch market. In addition to our current selection of jumping horses, we collaborate with well-known breeders, owners and show jumping riders throughout the Netherlands. Our collaboration is completely transparent and focused on reliability. Based on your personal wishes, we are able to select a number of suitable horses and present them to you.
When purchasing your new talented jumping horse its complete health should be assured. We are aware of the complete history of all our selected horses including the breeder, education, training and career. Before selling, all horses are radiographically tested, and a full report is available. All horses are sold based on a sales agreement, in which your interests are properly recorded. When buying a horse from DHC, transportation can be arranged. This way a safe delivery can be assured which provides peace and security.
The (correct) training of jumping horses is a profession of its own. Our team is highly skilled in training young jumpers from the age of 3 years old. Our focus is based on a long-term situation in which the development of the horse in full health is central. Thereby both mental and physical aspects work closely together. In consultation with the owner a specific training goal is set. The DHC team will systematically work towards the agreed objective. This can contains the basic education/schooling of young jumping horses but also training of the advanced jumping horse aimed at further development to higher levels. Mutual communication about progress and results of the horses are self-evident for us.
Showjumping is our biggest passion. Our horses (and riders) compete in show jumping competitions of different levels on a weekly basis. We participate in both reginal, national and international jumping competitions. These competitions take place in the Netherlands, but also in neighboring countries like Germany and Belgium. We offer the possibility to enter your horse(s) in these competitions. When interested an individual competition schedule can be arranged/developed concerning your wishes.
Personal development of the horse, while training and competing, is key in our vision. Our focus isn’t determined by speed but on the quality of the growth so your horse can perform in maximum health and with confidence. Owners are, of course, always aware of the competition schedules and welcome to enjoy the sport together.
