Sabine Houterman

My name is Sabine Houterman, I am 23 years old and I live in Wijchen. I started horse riding at the manège when I was young and soon I could participate in competitions with someone else’s pony. I brought this pony up to the advanced M1 class. Nowadays, I ride one competition horse (Painted Black) permanently with which I am in the Z2 class at the moment. I also ride competitions with horses of Odiliahoeve. 

I have decided to turn my hobby into my profession so after I finished secondary school I went to Helicon in Nijmegen. This is where I followed an education in Horse management, which I successfully completed.

During my internships at, amongst others, dressage stables van Delden, eventing stables Rob Jansen and training stables Jeantien I gained a lot of experience. I decided to stay at training stables Jeantien in Leur and I still work there on Saturdays and during the holidays. I mainly trained young horses there and assisted in inspections.

I had met Leonieke before while I was at school and when I finished my studies, luck would have it that there was a vacancy at dressage stables Odiliahoeve. I have worked here full-time since August 2011.
