Laury de Wit

The cooperation between Laury and Patrick started in the time of 'the Iron Man' in Weert. Laury started there together with Patrick, initially for internship and later on into employment. Patrick and Sylvia moved to Naaldwijk and Laury worked as Groom/equerry to a number of companies, also abroad.
In 2002 she moved along with Patrick and Sylvia to Naaldwijk and took care of the stalmanegment. Laury is a great help, support and ensures that Patrick can fully use his time to train other riders and his own horses.
Besides the grooming she takes care of the complete stablemanagment, classifying personnel, contact with vet and farrier.

Melanie Woutersen

Since 2009 Melanie is working as a rider at training stable de Hoeve. Melanie rides the stable horses, and trains the horses of some customers of the stable.

With her own horse Adelheid she is qualified to start in the high class. She also participates in contests with the horses of training stable de Hoeve.


Sophia Zuyderwijk

Before the acquisition of "manege de Hoeve", Sophia worked there already as an employee.

After the acquisition she stayed at de Hoeve and is still taking care of the canteen and supplies. Sophia also takes care of the other accomodations like cleaning and of course keeping the social contacts with the riders and customers at training stable de Hoeve.

Karin Arkenbout

Many pension customers, and certainly the pony riders, get their training from Karin. She gives lessons to novice riders and riders at the national level, but also to people from outside in both dressage and jumping.

Karin drove earlier light tour and starts ZZ Z with her ​​own horses.

On the days that Patrick is not available, she is always ready for customers and always knows a suitable solution if needed.

Karin Bekkenkamp

Karin has been working at the farm since she was a young girl.

Since the acquisition she is taking care of the equestrian center. Many riders from the Westland had lessons by Karin.

After finishing the equestrian activities Karin provides group lessons for the pension customers, but also people from outside. Certainly the pony riders like Karin.

In addition, Karin is also working a few mornings in the stables.

Jan van der Meer

The father of Patrick has a large part in creating a succesfull company at the Galgeweg.

The first years he almost spent every day and night with the (re)building of the accommodation.

Under the guise of "you take care of the horses and clients than I take care of the property" has almost built everything himself.

He is still seen a lot in Naaldwijk and every Monday morning early he sits on the tractor to clean all the horse boxes at the stables.
