My name is Dana Scheepbouwer and ever since I can remember I have had a strong preference for the big draft horses. I personally ride dressage with my own horse, which is a Shire. In 2010, I started my own web shop exclusive to the big draft horses; however, there was a limited range of products in this size. In 2012, I started crafting custom-made bridles for Shires, Clydesdale, and Belgian draft horses as well as other large Cold Blood breeds.
At the beginning of 2017, I started saddlery school in order to add more dimension to my passion. During this training, I was given the opportunity to specialize in the draft horses, in addition to acquiring basic saddle-fitting skills for the most common horse breeds. I would be happy to pay you a visit and take a look at your horse for a saddle fitting (even if it is not a draft horse), or to properly measure your horse for a bridle.
"Hoofdstel goed ontvangen en in het echt nog veeel mooier. Super fijn hoe je de teugels hebt gemaakt."
"Hey Dana. Pakket ontvangen. Super mooi. Complimenten voor je handwerk. Prachtig. Echt heel blij mee."
"I recieved the bridle today, and it is absolutely lovely! Thank you very much!"
From my own experience I know how important it is that every detail around your horse is correct and taking care of. Only a new saddle or another bit isn't enough. For an optimal performance, every element around you and your horse needs to be put together like a puzzle and every detail is meaningful. Interdisciplinary collaboration is something I find very important.
This should be the base of every horse. Together we can achieve more!
