A little History
You can find Stud-Farm “Goorhof” nearby the E34, exit 26, the last stop before the Dutch border. Stud-Farm Goorhof was officially founded in 1992 but the real beginning goes a lot further back into time. About 20 years earlier there was the mare Utricia and because she did quite well at shows her owner thought: “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a foal by her?” That foal was the first of many to come and that was the real beginning of Stud-Farm Goorhof.
Step by Step the Stud-Farm grew out to be the complex it is today. The out-dour riding area with all weather soil was installed, the number of boxes was quite quickly doubled, all facilities for the exploitation of a Stallion Stud-Farm were installed, professional qualification as AI Centre (artificial insemination), lab, examine box, phantom, … To make sure all our horses can be looked after in optimal conditions, also a washing place with warm water and a solarium have been built. A few years ago an indoor riding hall, a covered horsewalker and several paddocks were added to the complex.
The goal of Stud-Farm Goorhof is breeding an all round beautiful, healthy, modern and versatile sport horse with a nice character. We are proud to be able to say we’re on the right track and we’re proud of the horses in our stable and of the results our breeding products make.
