"I am one of the lucky ones who has been able to turn their hobby into a profession," says Martijn Frencken. Frencken is a passionate horseman who has been running his sales barn for many years under the name Paardenhandel Martijn Frencken. The sale of 2-, 3- and 4-year-old showjumpers is the most significant pillar of the company.
Even though Martijn has always had many people interested in his horses, he still likes to join the Dutch Horse Trading group. "DHT is a select group of honest guys. I appreciate that customers can contact us directly. The online sale of horses is completely in line with this time. More and more horses are sold online."
In horse dealings, Martijn thinks it is important that there is open communication between seller and buyer and that the vettings are recent. "I like the right price-quality ratio, and I want to do everything to find the right horse for the customer."
Martijn has sold a lot of well-performing show jumpers over the years. For example, Backatorps Danny V (Quasimodo Z x Lupicor) under Bruce Goodin competed at the Olympics and won several Grand Prix'. Ermindo W (Singapore x Carinjo) under Rolf Göran Bengtsson is also successful at 1.60m level.
Martijn likes to see athletic horses, but the most important traits are smartness, how they come in, how they finish the jump, and how well focused they are.
