Below you can see the companies we work with. We only work with companies that we fully support and use ourselves.
Both my horses, Wayana and Bally, have enjoyed the fine BUCAS blankets for years, the quality and fit is really great! That is why I think it is so great that I have become an ambassador for BUCAS as of 2019.
At the moment my favorites from the range are the Smartex Rain, Buzz-Off Rain and the Therapy series. The Smartex is an indestructible outdoor blanket with stay-dry lining, thanks to that special fabric you can even put the blanket on if your horse is not yet completely dried. Super handy, so you no longer have to worry about your horse catching a cold!
In addition, I often use Bucas Therapy for Wayana. The top part of this blanket reflects the magnetic fields in the body, stimulates blood circulation and oxygen supply on the horse’s back. When I put the Therapy blanket on for a few hours before training, Wayana starts training a lot looser.
Everyone knows that unlimited roughage must be the basis for a good ration, but how critically do we look at the concentrate we give?
Thanks to the collaboration with Vitalbix, I’m now more aware of what my horses need. For example, it is very important that the starch and sugar content is not too high, because the digestive system of a horse is not designed for this.
The health of my horses has improved since we switched to Vitalbix. For example, Bally used to have a dull coat but now really shines and looks healthy.
If you are curious about what Vitalbix can do for your horse, you can request free nutritional advice on their website.
I’ve been a fan of the Anky Technical Casuals clothing line for years. I even still have a shirt from 2006 which is still of great quality! I was really thrilled to have a collaboration with Anky Technical Casuals and to be wearing their outfits throughout the year.
The right arena footing and sand is critical for performance. We’re happy we’ve partnered up with Zandcompleet, the company who gives advice and provides arena footing.
Both our indoor and outdoor as well as the horsewalker, paddocks and lunging arena have footing provided by Zandcompleet.
When you own a stable, you need good equipment. I’ve partnered up with Bonenkamp who is a dealer of Avant and Stihl.
We have the Avant 520 with several tools, like a mowing machine and an arena groomer.
DocHorse is a webshop that ships its products all over the world. What’s special about DocHorse, is that they really focus on quality and only sell the products they have tested and they’re an advocate of.
DocHorse had a range of brands we’re fan of, like for example Cal Rei. We ride with the saddle pads from Cal Rei which are composed of 2 layers of 3D Spacer fabric. This is an open structure so that it gives 100% ventilation.
It was love at first sight when I saw the Volvo XC40. Having been a fan of Volvo for years, I was very happy to have a collaboration with Ton van Kuyk, Volvo dealer.
In the video I’m picking up my new car, which is in Dutch by the way.
