Training & schooling


We are one of the best locations for driving and dressage schooling.

Udo de Haan is an ORUN-certified instructor and has many years of experience in group as well as private tuition

Private tuition is provided at Stud farm Het Swarte Paert in our large indoor or outdoor arena. Schooling is provided by appointment.

There are quality carriages available for ponies as well as horses.

In the winter months, Udo also provides tuition at different driving associations.

Daniëlla Smit provides individual dressage tuition under the saddle, from lower level B to the Big tour.

These lessons can also be booked by appointment.


Your horse can be trained soundly at Studfarm Het Swarte Paert.

We can train your horse or pony under the saddle or in harness (singles and pairs) to the desired level.

The basic training for the combination harness and under the saddle takes an average of 5 to 6 weeks. This involves training your horse 5 days a week.

During the training, your horse will stay at our yard at full livery.


Performance test mares (IBOP stands for Instelling Bruikbaarheid Onderzoek Paarden)

We have several years of success in the schooling and riding of IBOP horses.

We have ridden numerous mares to the Model, Crown and Star predicate. Furthermore, we have helped many horses achieve a score of 77 points and higher. We can train your horse for the driving/harness test or dressage test.

The preparations for an IBOP test take at least 8 weeks.

In addition, we also prepare horses for ABFP tests, offspring tests and Central stallion tests.

During the schooling/training, your horse will stay at our yard.

Do not hesitate to contact us about the possibilities and customized solutions!

Starting your horse in competitions

In addition to our own competing horses, we ride several talented horses for third parties.

The horses can be started in the following disciplines up to the highest level:

– dressage driving

– harness regional

– harness national

– dressage under the saddle

– breeding shows driving/under the saddle classes

Sports predicate

Horses registered with the KFPS can also achieve the Sports predicate in dressage, driving and/or harness and thus convert their provisional Crown or Model predicate into a definitive one.
