A love born early became a passion and a life’s work.
To feel, trust and strengthen the bond between horse and rider.
To discover young talents, and guide them to success.
VM Sporthorses is a jumping stable in Wuustwezel internationally known for discovering and developing young and talented jumpers.
At our clients’ request, we gladly seek out the right horse for them. After the presentation and sale we help rider and horse become a winning team. We also enter into competitions with our own horses and horses (co-)owned by others. Both our clients and our own horses consistently achieve fine results. This fills us with pride and satisfaction and it also tells us we are on the right track.
Our manager and founder Thomas Van Minnebruggen has been riding since his 4th birthday. Thanks to his experience, expertise, riding successes and his close cooperation with top riders and breeders, he is able to guide horses with great potential to impressive competition results. We at VM Sporthorses devote all our attention to excellent care and respect for the horses in all our activities. This is crucial for the horses' quality of life and their performance in the long run.
Should you have any questions, or you have a talented jumping horse for sale, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Here you can see the horses we are currently training.
We are always on the lookout for new jumping talent that we can train to compete at the top of equestrian sports. Our training methods are the result of years of experience and have proven their effectiveness many times over.
Our horse trading covers the entire life cycle: we buy young, talented show jumpers, train them to the level of true sport horses, sell them to appropriate owners, and continue to follow them up.
Here you will find the horses we are training for other owners or co-owners and the horses we have sold when their training was complete.
If you are looking for a show jumping horse, we will advise you which horses are suitable for you and which horses offer the most potential. After the sale, we will help you become a successful team with your new horse. You will be on your way to good results in no time.
We at VM Sporthorses strongly value a good relationship with the owners of the horses we train and the owners of our reference horses.
And, of course, we always cheer for and celebrate every great performance by one of ‘our’ horses.
#VMsporthorses: “a better way to success”
I have been training our horses alongside Thomas since 2016.
The starting point for his training is always to find out what the horse needs at that time.
This way, both young and experienced horses are elevated to a higher level in a gentle and efficient way.
Not only his knowledge, but also his motivation, passion and communication are what make Thomas a top trainer.
I'm looking forward to achieving many more goals... The best is yet to come!
Olivia and myself have been dealing with VM Sporthorses and Thomas for a few years now and have found Thomas a pleasure to deal with.
The horses we have purchased through him have all been top class and we are more than happy with our beautiful team of jumping horses.
We would recommend Thomas to anyone looking to purchase a top class jumping horse...
We will definitely be back to visit Thomas and his stable at VM Sporthorses in the future.
VM Sporthorses is one of our steady and preferred partners to train our young and talented 111 breeding horses.
Apart from Thomas' proven talent as a horse trainer, he has on several occasions played
an integral part in the sale of our breeding horses that he trained.
Moreover, he's a very pleasant person to work with.
Thomas knows what he is doing and works independently.
We've been working together really well for several years with proven results!
