Yves was born at riding school “Groenestein” in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Literally born between horses, he started his many years of horse experience with a blast.
From the age of 16 up to 40, he has operated for one of the best equestrian footing companies. In those 24 years, Yves gained a lot of valuable experience; he was present at European Championships, World Championships and other International Equestrian events all over the world. Yves has a lot of contacts in the equestrian sports world and a wealth of experience in footings.
In 2013, Yves started his own company “Verheyden Rentals and Maintenance”. From that point, other companies started hiring him to level and maintain footings, and to build and upholster stands at shows; both national as international.
6 years later, in 2019, Yves decided to take it to a next level and focus on the one thing he really loves: footings. Together with Jesper Romp he started a new company: Verheyden & Romp Equestrian Footings B.V!
