DWV has started to exist since June 2016 somewhat unexpectedly. Nienke was training in vaulting and was giving clinics as well as being a broker for horse trades. At some point she had to register herself at the Chamber of Commerce and think up a name, which simply became “DeWolff Vaultinghorses”. It used to be a hobby of just a few hours a week, but has since grown to be a renowned international company that is globally known for its expertise within the vaulting sport. Customers and students from around the world come to ride, test or buy horses, which are being sold to customers within Europe but also increasingly to countries such as the United States or Mexico for example.
At DWV we focus on training our horses to be used for vaulting, either for regular teams that wish to compete as well as for top athletes. Additionally, DWV assists customers with the purchasing and selling of horse and can provide a broker service.
For a number of vaulters, DWV has become a home base to practise the sport. We give vaulting lessons to beginners and to international vaulters, where foreign students have the possibility to stay in our appartment next to the stables.
We also organize clinics for lunging and vaulting and we give advice about horse management and training young vaulting horses

What Drives Us
Purchasing a horse
DWV focuses on the market for vaulting horses and is therefore constantly looking for horses that fit the profile. Obviously they do not need to be familiar with this discipline, that is something we teach the horse. A vaulting prospect is sober in his head, willing to work and has a nice canter. We always look for horses that are nice to ride under the saddle, because even a volcano horse runs more under the saddle than he does at the lunge. In terms of level and quality canter, everything has to fit.
