Krüsterhof in Voerde is home of an approved EU certified stallion station, which allows semen to be collected from the approved stallions right on the premises. Collected semen is processes on-site and then shipped to breeders.
Stepping into the stallion business as service partner of the Northrhine Westphalian State Stud in 1999, Krüsterhof Voerde was established into an independent, private insemination station in 2010, and has been growing rapidly since then. Following a moderate start with four station stallions, the number already increased to ten in 2012! The number of inseminated mares rose correspondingly, a development that is not that normal any more today. We value our breeders’ trust in us and with that in mind, we are confidently looking forward to 2016. With our carefully selected, performance-oriented stallion collection and our team, complemented by our vet Tina in important position, we will continue our successful work together with you.
Riding Master Johann Hinnemann has been living and working at Krüsterhof for more than 40 years, and everything he tackles works well: Johann Hinnemann has written history as rider, trainer, stallion holder and breeder. His personal data sheet features stallion personalities such as Rubinstein, Ferro, Beltain and Fidermark. The quality seal “Hinnemann” is closely associated with Krüsterhof, and that’s how it should stay. Johann Hinnemann is assisted by Steffi Wolf and Tina Hinnemann, two strong women who are perfectly representing the two pillars of Krüsterhof, the dressage stable and the stallion station.
The dressage stable
"Chief Bereiter" Steffi Wolf (Master of Equine Management) has been working as head trainer with us since 2007 and is inseparably linked with Krüsterhof. Steffi is indispensable when it comes to operational management, however, her main profession is to accomplish great things in the saddle, from youngster age to Grand Prix-horses. A huge milestone in Steffi’s career was her breakthrough with three horses at the Grand Prix-level in 2012. She successfully trained Sorento OLD, a reliable partner, to compete at the Grand Prix-level. Meanwhile she has achieved more than 200 successes at the advanced level. As an established rider of different horses, she participated at the 2014 Federal Championships in Warendorf ("Bundeschampionat") and managed to accomplish the unbelievable stunt to qualify with two horses for two different nations for the FEI World Breeding Dressage Championships of Young Horses in Verden, For Comtess Royal NG and our station stallion Elton John. Steffi qualified again for the World Championships last year with Rockman Royal NG.
Dear Steffi, please go on like that!
Together with Johann Hinnemann, Steffi Wolf continues to promote the reputation of Krüsterhof when it comes to dressage at the highest level, and the whole team supports her to the best of their ability. Martin Pfeiffer and Marina Welbers are our other two talented top riders, successfully representing the Krüsterhof with Steffi at tournaments. The track record of our dedicated rider trio in the last year alone, is an impressive result!
The Stallion Station
After more than 15 years, Tina Hinnemann returned to her parents’ farm Krüsterhof in summer 2012, completely motivated and full of ideas! After having studied vet medicine, Tina had worked for some years with Paul Schockemöhle in her specialist field of mare gynaecology and embryo transfer. Due to her work at Gestüt Lewitz and in Mühlen, she has gained plenty of experiences which would be hard to achieve anywhere else. Tina is specialized on qualified stallion and mare management and provides the best basic conditions to run the stallion station with Krüsterhof. Our station provides the opportunity to have Bettina Hinnemann taken care of your mares at Krüsterhof or in accessible distance at your home. As a special service, we offer the option of embryo transfer for your sport and broodmares. For further information, please contact Bettina Hinnemann – we are looking forward to your call!
