Arabic Show Horses
Tom and Glenn Schoukens grew up at Pajottenland Arabians, their father’s training center near Brussels. Eventually When Dennis Schoukens decided to immigrate to South Africa, Tom and Glenn continued school and made sure their dream remained the same: working with Arabian horses on weekends and school vacations. For a long time they were the favorite young show grooms of Fernando Poli. After graduation Tom and Glenn started working full time at farms and training centers in Belgium, Germany and the United States.
In May 2003 the brothers started their own training center. They rented a small facility, built 12 stalls and Schoukens Training Center was born. A year later, Tom and Glenn got the opportunity to move to a larger facility in Wulpen on the premises of Joy Horses.
At STC every horse is precious and gets its individual necessary care. One of the special ones has been a filly named Pandoraah, which Glenn saw in the United States. Pandoraah was purchased as a yearling, came to Europe and won the All Nations Cup in Aachen with Tom.
Sheikh Khaled Bagedo bought the magnificent Stallion MCA Magnum Gold. This fantastic stallion won a lot of prestigious titles, amongst them the 2010 AKAHF in Riyadh. His daughter WA Magna Rouge was awarded Gold Champion filly with Glenn on the lead.
There was also Shannan Al Madan, from HRH Prince Abdullah Bin Fahd Al Saud, which gave STC its first title at the World Championships in Paris 2008, winning the bronze medal.
Winning the All Nations Cup with Queen SA Misha Apal in 2009 was an amazing feeling for Tom. He knew her from birth and she came back in Tom's live when Sheikh Abdullah brought her back from the U.S.
Another highlight of 2009 came from the homebred Najdah Al Zobair. Sheikh Abdullah trusted this precious bay Marwan daughter in Tom's hands. After starting her season at the AKAHF with a gold medal, she took gold in Dubai, gold in Menton, gold at the Elran Cup, bronze in Aachen, and was named Unanimous 2009 World Champion Filly.
