Matteo van 't Rietenhof
Belgian champion 2014 & Approved for life

View video

Matteo is the National Champion stallion of Belgium of 2014. He is approved on offspring and this way belongs to a select group of what in Belgium is called “raçeurs” - meaning exceptional breeding studs. He has been "approved for life" since 2015. Matteo is sire to more than 600 foals and he has produced not less than 21 approved sons (still counting!).
He combines generations of exclusive blood in his pedigree and this is reflected in breeding with an enormous number of successful offspring. Matteo has brought quality and color to draft horse breeding. In addition to all those sons approved for breeding, there is an extreme high number of top quality daughters and now also granddaughters and sons - simply too many to mention. He is a living legend.

There is frozen semen available of Matteo. Worldwide shipment.


Jim van 't Roetaart
Dutch champion & International champion 2019

View video

Jim is a dark bay stallion and became champion as a foal in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw; one year later he was champion in Oudenaarde, Deinze and Appels and the year after he was approved for breeding for the first time.
In 2019 Jim became Dutch Champion as a five year old stallion at the Central Stallion Show in Lunteren and in the summer he became International Champion in Wachtebeke.

Jim's offspring performs as well as their sire during the show contests. Last year at the foal championship of Appels all the champion titles went to offspring of Jim. From his first crop of foals - his son, Lord van 't Langhof, was just approved in France and in Oudenaarde Jim was the sire of the three winning yearling colt ♂s. His foals also have a very large color variety with besides bay roan, lots of bay, black and blue roan - but even dapple grey.


Rubben van ‘t Langhof
Top class young stallion from our own breeding

Translation coming soon. Rubben behoorde bij de beste jonge hengsten uit de nieuwe jaargang, hij kreeg zelfs de hoogste score op type. Die dankte hij dan ook aan zijn mannelijke en compacte bouw met veel rasuitstraling. Hij staat op goedgesteld beenwerk en dito voeten. Ook in beweging toont hij zich een echte hengst met veel houding en ruimte. Zijn vader is Tibo van Luchteren die helaas te vroeg uit de fokkerij is gegaan, zijn moeder Victoria is een klasse apart. De moeder van Rubben is de blauwschimmel Fleur van ’t Langhof die derde op tal werd tijdens de laatste Nationale Prijskamp en geboren is uit blauwschimmel ouders zodat ook Rubben garant zal staan voor kleur. Als jaarling werd Rubben kampioen in Oudenaarde, Deinze en Appels.

Coming soon

Studfarm Belgian 'Brabant' Draft Horses

Eddy Van Langenhove

Eddy Van Langenhove took over the studfarm from his father Arthur. He became the pioneer in AI breeding in Belgian draft horses. Years of experience offer an outstanding service to breeders.
Quality always comes first when choosing the stallions which will stand at stud. A good conformation with powerful movements and a good bloodline are the main qualities that characterize the stallions of Studfarm Van Langenhove.
Every year a number of foals are purchased with an eye to the future. In this way Studfarm Van Langenhove follows the development of the horses from an early age and a continuous strict selection is made before the stallions are used for breeding.

Online foal show

Livestream 6 December 2020. Due to the corona crisis it was not possible to organise competitions or other events at the end of 2020, so that’s why things had to be done differently. In an online show we presented about 30 foals and yearling colts and our stallions: Gamin van de Lindehoef, Matteo van ‘t Rietenhof and Jim van ‘t Roetaart. If you have missed it, you can watch it again below:

After the overwhelming response we will most-likely do another online show in autumn 2021! Let us know if you are looking for a specific type of foal so we can keep it in mind when selecting foals in the summer.
