We would like to thank our intern Lisa from Switzerland! She has actively supported our team for one month.
Thank you Lisa, it was very nice to have you with us! We wish you only the best for the future and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Field report by Lisa:
I wanted to devote my summer vacation entirely to horses. And so I started looking for a suitable farm. Through student rider contacts I finally landed on the Vechtehof, with the Egbers family.
After a short “trial stay” it was clear to me that I would like to travel to the “far north” with my horse for 4 weeks to improve my riding skills and to get an insight into another dressage stable.
Maybe you are also interested in such an internship? Here is some info so you know what to expect.
At 6.30h we start with the stable work at the Vechtehof. After the work is done, there is a breakfast break and then it’s off to the horse. Each day I was allowed to ride 3-5 horses – from three-year-old youngsters to safe dressage and show jumping horses.
From 13h to 15h was lunch break. We always ate the really delicious lunch together. In the afternoon I usually rode another horse and then helped with the stable work. When everything was done, the trainees and I rode our own horses in the lessons. I was able to profit a lot from Wolfgang and Sabine’s experience.
The community part was not neglected either. We went on beautiful rides along the Vechte, went to the lake or all had a barbecue together with the Egbers family.
I was able to experience a really exciting and educational time on the family-run Vechtehof and gained many insights!
Thank you, family Egbers for the wonderful time with you!
