Hof Kasselmann - passion around the horse!
More than 1,000 years of horse history
The history of the internationally well-known center of competence for dressage sport of the Kasselmann-family goes back more than 1,000 years.
It had started as an agricultural farm and had been the property of the Earl of Tecklenburg in the 16th and 17th century. In 1765, the Prussian king “Friedrich der Große” had allowed the peasants to buy off from the old authorities. The Kasselmanns had taken the chance and henceforth, they had been free farmers.
In the course of the 20th century, agriculture had been in flux and therefore, the main business had constantly changed into today’s passion: dressage!
It was Ullrich Kasselmann who spotted the constantly growing interest in riding sport and who transformed the farm into the modern equestrian center it is today. In 1972, he inherited the parental farm, and since that time, training and sales of dressage horses are a family passion.
Today, more than 50 employees are working on the 40 hectares of equestrian facilities, and 200 horses are ridden and trained day by day.
