Young horses towards the pasture

The latest news from Sterrehof stud

Yearling and two year old horses are put in the pasture

Last week the one and two year old horses have been turned out into the pasture. We always plan this in the first week of May, if the weather conditions are good and the grass has started to grow. After staying in the rearing stables during Winter period our youngster can remain now in the pasture till the second half of October.

We always split the youngster in small groups, divided by age and of course by gender. We keep the yearling colts apart from the two years old, because of the increasing dominance of the latter. The fillies are also split by age but after a short period put together, when they are used to each other.

Special horse grass

In total we have 15 hectares of pastures, enough for the horses to graze on and for gaining hay silage for the winter period. Once every two years we take soil samples to secure a  good quality of the grass. A part of our field has been sowed with special grass for horses, which contains a lot of clover.

Because of our location close to the Veluwemeer we have quite some wind and the horses have relatively little nuisance from flies. We check our horses in the field on a daily basis. Luckely most of the time all is fine with them and it’s especially nice to watch them develop during this outdoor period.


Sterrehof Stud always offers talented showjumpers in several age categories. Please click the image for more details on that particular horse or refer to the overview. Please contact us for more information on the horses currently for sale at our stud.
