Gut Neuenhof is located on the northern side of the Eifel National Park in the very beautiful setting of Nideggen, a small town originating from the Middle Ages, where the Rur River, an eastern tributary of the Meuse River, begins and flows in a gentle curve through a secluded valley surrounded by forests on its way to the Netherlands. The estate was first documented in 1620. Gut Neuenhof had been a dairy farm for a long time before we bought it and refurbished it from top to bottom nearly 15 years ago, adding stables and a training facility, realizing our dream of owning a small but first rate stud farm for breeding performance horses.
Of the estate’s 67 acres (27 hectares) that are managed, 54 acres (22 hectares) are pastures. We make our own hay on our meadows which are rich in herbs, and buy excellent straw from the local Eifel farmers.
The light-flooded, airy boxes and loose stables at Gut Neuenhof provide plenty of room for our horses. Depending on their needs, each of our mares, foals and young horses are given the feed grain mixes, vitamins and minerals they need.
