Team Nijhof was founded in 1916. This means we celebrated our 100 year anniversary in 2016! We are an all-round equestrian business with a stud farm, EU-station, sport stable and veterinary practice. We have a record number of Grand Prix-stallions in our collection. Our stallions belong to the top of world and excel in sport, which is shown by the participation of two of Team Nijhof’s stallions during the World Cup finals and the World Equestrian Games in 2014, where they both won a medal. Johnson won bronze with Hans Peter Minderhoud in dressage, and Verdi won gold with Maikel van der Vleuten in jumping on the WEG in Caen.
Team Nijhof has a broad collection of Grand Prix-stallions, both dressage and jumping. Our stallions can be divided into three categories. The proven stallions, like Heartbreaker and Florencio, belong to the first category. The second category exists of the 7-, 8- and 9-year old stallions that are still active in the sport, like Verdi and Johnson. In addition, we also have relatively unknown stallions such as Breitling, in whom we have great confidence.
The stallion collection of Team Nijhof exist of e.g. the Grand Prix-stallions Clinton, Canabis Z, Eldorado van de Zeshoek, Johnson, Lord Z, Marius Claudius, Quality Time, Spartacus, Verdi, Tadmus and Zacharov. In addition we have frozen semen available of e.g. the Grand Prix-stallions Burggraaf, Calvados, Concorde, Voltaire, Larino, Manhattan and Warrant.
We are happy to advise you in the choice of stallion for your mare(s) and you can always drop by for a cup of coffee.
