Martine and Erik became fascinated with showjumping horses, captivated by their beauty and power. In 2006 they bought some 3 years old jumping horses: one of them was Etoile van ’t Oudbos (Toulon x Lys De Darmen).
He became an approved stallion and father of many of their later quality breeding off-springs.
Etoile came under the saddle of Gregory Wathelet, unfortunately he got injured.
As horse lovers and enthusiasts, they have developed an eye for true talent and have many quality horses in their stables, based in Zutendaal, almost in the backyard of Zangersheide.
In order to do so, they have the support of the best team by their side:
Andre Freire (Bra) – Andre started his outstanding riding career in Brazil, with a long list of national titles and championships as a junior and young rider. He has a vast experience producing and training horses and competing in some of the most prestigious arenas around the world at the top level of the sport. As a professional rider in Europe he has had numerous achievements in some of the best 2 and 3* GP competitions.
Leonardo Acosta (Bra) - “It has been a big pleasure to be part of the Thor Stables team. As a rider it is very satisfying to see the evolution of the horses on a daily basis. This is only possible because we have an excellent team to keep our animals healthy and well taken care of, a complete structure to keep them in great physical and mental condition, an effective system that enables us to achieve our goals and certainly great animals with incredible potentials!”
Thimo Stegen (Bel) - A talented 19yo rider with experience mainly with young horses (4,5 and 6yo) which he actively and successfully takes to competitions.
A group of people who look after everyday details of their horses’ well-being, making sure they have everything they need to be happy, healthy and thriving.
At Thor Stables the goal as horse owners and breeders is to give young horses the best possible education and training to reach their highest potential and to contribute to the highest level of equestrian sports, with quality horses, developed under the best conditions.
