SOCIALISATION
BORN TO BE TOGETHER

Many horses in the Netherlands are accustomed to spending their early years in rearing alongside peers, followed by (partial) stable housing. From our experience, it has become evident that this sometimes has a negative impact on their social skills. Within herds, horses can encounter conflicts among themselves. These conflicts aren't only unpleasant for the horses, but they can also be burdensome for horse owners and their finances, considering expenses such as veterinary costs. We firmly believe in the importance of a thoughtful introduction policy: prevention is indeed better than cure.

Ensuring that new horses are introduced properly into an existing group is always of paramount importance. If you're interested in finding the best approach for your situation, or if unforeseen challenges arise during or after the introduction process, I'm always here to assist. Feel free to reach out to me for advice and support. Together, we can collaborate towards fostering harmonious herd interactions and enhancing the overall well-being of the horses.

STALLIONS

Over the past years, I've gained extensive experience in the field of (re)socializing stallions, and I'm eager to assist other horse owners with this. Do you also wish that your horse has social contact or even a social life, but you're unsure where to start? You're not alone, as I'm here to help!

Depending on your stable policy, it might be possible to support your horse right where it's currently housed. In other situations, it could also be an option to have your horse accompanied by us for a few months at Paarden Pension Buitenkans.
