Minnebo sporthorses is primarily a dealing - and training yard which has been successful for the last 16 years under the watchful eye of the founder, Frits Minnebo. Minnebo sporthorses sells and exports horses to over 10 countries, including: UK, France, USA, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Italy and Portugal, and 98% of the horses traded are between 3-7 years old. There is a Dutch saying, “De jeugd heeft de toekomst,” or “The young hold the future”. Minnebo sporthorses looks to develop young talent in healthy, unspoiled dressage and jumping horses.
“To get from the raw diamond to the cut gemstone, the stone goes through several stages of development”.
Such is the same with young dressage and jumping horses.
Frits Minnebo has been working with horses for the last 26 years and has attained his instructor’s diploma from the Dutch equestrian school in Deurne. He has trained, taught and ridden professionally in both Germany and Holland in Dressage as well as in Jumping. He is a member of the VSN (The Dutch Sportinghorse Traders Association) and sells horses with purchase agreements approved by them. Frits has also been acting as a judge for the Dutch young horse competition for the last 7 years.
Frits not only looks for the “raw diamond” in his horses, he has discovered the fun of developing their undiscovered talents. He has made a choice to specialize in young horses and it is his passion to scout and develop talent. This choice is also based on his many years experience in the business.
Our horses are mostly interesting for people who are looking to buy a talented youngster and train it further. The prices at Minnebo sporthorses are very reasonable and this is partly due to the fact that no large expenses are made from the training side, as well as from the large number of horses that are available at both our yards.
At our accommodation near Utrecht/Amersfoort, you will find a selection of approximately 30 mostly young and talented dressage horses and jumpers and some eventing horses.
