Belgian draft horse breeding stable and stallions

About us

Our Belgian draft horse stable is located in Maaseik (Belgium), close to the Dutch and German borders. It was founded in 1984 by Nico Henckens and Els Geusens with their first mare 'Blanche van het Hermeshof' and has today become a well-known name in the world of Belgian draft horses.

Our stable stands for purebred horses with plain hair colours and clean legs. Discover it here.

Tejo van het Hermeshof Flemisch champion

Last year, he was close, but this year he did it! Our own bred Tejo van het Hermeshof has won the title of Flemish champion stallion. A dream come true, a Flemish champion at our stables!

We are proud of this achievement. A reward for the years of work with our own stable. Thanks to everyone for the help!

Vainqueur third best stallion JTPF Championship

Yesterday Vainqueur van het Hermeshof participated in the Championship organised by JTPF, at the beautiful location 'de Peelbergen'. Vainqueur was placed 2nd in his series and could therefore participate in the Championship later that day. In this championship he only had to let pass the Champion and Reserve Champion and he himself became 3rd!

35 years Hermeshof!

Time flies! We are celebrating our 35th anniversary! Our horse stable started in September 1984 with the purchase of our first brown mare: "Blanche". 35 years later the counter indicates 26 draft horses, with only 2 of them not born at our stable! Over the years, we brought 182 self-bred draft horses to this world, some a bit easier than others, but all of them were welcomed with great joy.... The color microbe of Blanche is still present, because our pastures are still being brightened up by brown, chestnut, black and greyish blue mares and stallions. Except for the colour, a lot has changed since 1984, a lot of shows were performed and a lot of competitions were attended. To celebrate this we have put together a collection of the most beautiful moments of the past 35 years! We hope that many more years will follow, cheers!
