The central focus is always on the well-being of the horses. Andrew Hoy emphasizes one crucial point: the importance of time and a solid foundation when training horses. His advice “Sometimes less is more” illustrates his balanced and sustainable training philosophy.
The couple’s individual approach to each horse is particularly important to them. The training is carefully planned and tailored to the characteristics of each individual horse.
This approach, which is tailored to the different characters, is also reflected in the way employees are treated. At Hoy Stables, every employee is treated as an individual, but at the same time a strong team spirit is cultivated. A key message is that avoiding or covering up mistakes is counterproductive when working with horses. Instead, openness and transparency are encouraged, combined with the firm principle of learning from mistakes. The horses benefit from this. They also attach great importance to the continuous exchange of knowledge and experience with experts from various fields, which not only serves the further development of the employees, but also the constant motivation of the team.
Entering the professional world of the equine industry, such as stable management, is made easier by the credo “Go to the top people and learn from the best”. The Hoys, as proponents of this guiding principle, partner with our Equestrian Stable Management Program to provide motivated entry-level professionals with access to quality education and world-class knowledge with an intership through the Operative Track at their facility. In summary, the keynote speech not only provides fascinating insights into the workings of this successful show stable, but also offers valuable learning content for aspiring professionals in our new Equestrian Stable Management Program.
