Dennis grew up on a farm helping out his father in his spare time and riding ponies as a hobby of which proved to be the start of a something special, at the age of eighteen he left Belgium to follow his dream, he worked in Germany for Ulrich Kirchoff of whom we all know of as Olympic Champion with Jus de Pommes.

He started working at VDL through Ulrich Kirchoff who was riding the VDL stallions at that time. In the fifteen years he worked at VDL, he rode and trained most of the young horses which led to an international jumping career with horses like VDL Southwind, VDL Alcantino, VDL Torlando, VDL Wizzard and many others.

Back home in Belgium, Dennis does what he strongly believes in, that being, a correct and solid dressage schooling for all horses, and most importantly giving each horse the time he needs to grow to his full potential.
