For the past 40 years, Stal Hendrix has been able to develop into a globally recognized top company. With the pillars of trade, training, sport and breeding the brothers Paul and Emile Hendrix, together with sons Michel and Timothy, focus on the highest achievable goals. Quality, a long-term vision and optimal service towards the customer are highly valued.
Grandfather Hendrix laid the foundation for the family business. He had a farm and later made the switch to sport horses. The big change came for him when he was co-owner of one of the best jumping horses in the world, Rex the Robber. That horse was sold to Alwin Schockemöhle, with whom he won several Grand Prix and a silver medal at the European Championships. It was clear from the beginning that his sons Emile (1955) and Paul (1958) wanted to continue the company in Baarlo, which they joined in 1977. While Emile Hendrix turned out to be a top rider in the eighties and nineties, including participating in the Olympic Games, Paul began to focus more and more on trading horses. For a long time, Stal Hendrix had one location, but since 2005 the accommodation in Kessel has been added. Together with his family, Paul not only focuses on sports and trade at his place in Kessel, but also on breeding and the producing of stallions.
Although both families have their own location and responsibilities, the cooperation and the bond within the family are very strong. The family story continues with sons Timothy (1985) and Michel (1987). As riders with experiences up to the World Cup and Nations Cup level they know exactly where the sports asks for. They also inherited the feeling for horse trading and dealing from their fathers. To bring the right horse to the right rider, or vice versa, both Timothy and Michel have specialized in this. And that is one of the strengths of the Hendrix family, for which quality is paramount. With an unprecedented network and a long list of references, Stal Hendrix has grown into a company that has acquired an unique status worldwide.
Via Stal Hendrix many top talents have already found their way to the right riders. Canada and America in particular have been important markets for many years. At Hendrix Training in Baarlo foreign riders can come to learn the tricks of the trade, and riders around the world can find Stal Hendrix for exclusive horse material in all age categories.
