Who do you want to get to know better?

Nico Krol

You can still spot the founder of Stal Krol in the stables every day. His main task is taking care of the horses, supervise the breeding horses and the purchase of horses.

He was one of the first Dutchies which attends the inspections in Holstein on an annual basis. This provides him to bring ‘new blood’ to our country as a progressive breeder.

With an excellent eye for a good horse, he bought the talents from inside and outside the country at an early age. With this approach he has managed to spot several stallions at an early stage. Today we still make great use of his expertise and experience.

Nelleke Krol

Nelleke is a real horse lover in everything she does. From a young age, she has always been involved in her parents’ business. In the first instance by training various horses to Heavy Tour level in combination with a position at a horse company outside the door such as the Horse Sector Council and HAS University of Applied Sciences.

The interest in breeding was present early on. She has been a board member at JongKWPN for many years and is still very active in dressage horse breeding.

In addition to her position as a board member at the VSN (The Dutch Sport Horse Traders Association), Nelleke now works full-time at Stal Krol, where she focuses on the purchase and sale of horses and training. She herself is a certified instructor (ORUN 3) and jury member (Class B-L) and she provides instruction up to Small Tour level.

Iris Hooymans

As our permanent rider, Iris has been associated with Stal Krol for a few years now. After completing the horse husbandry education and the ORUN course, she joined our team.

Iris is mostly riding the young horses and saddle breaks them at our own location. She also brings horses in competition, both in dressage and jumping.
