About us

Joan van Gorkum

I, Joan van Gorkum, started making software for pig farms on my old-fashioned computer from the late 1980’s. In 1994 I started my own company alongside my full-time employment. In 2001 I developed HAP (Stallion Administration Program), later TAP (Training Administration Program) was added.

In 2014 I flew to America because I had sold a number of horses. I wanted to be able to keep my e-mail abroad. That was the moment that I switched from my old-fashioned Nokia to a more luxurious smartphone. On the plane I discovered the countless possibilities of such a small computer in your inside pocket. Upon my return to the Netherlands, I immediately had the new software developed with all the horse industry specific issues that we did not have in our old software. We at HorseManager enjoy working together with young enthusiastic creative people. HAS-trainee Mirjam Thijs came up with a name that sounded better than HAP/TAP abroad: HorseManager was born.

The biggest difference with the old software is that we now have a basic module that contains everything that applies to any horse company. We have categorized the specific business processes of the various branches of sport in separate modules.

As we are a low-threshold no-nonsense company that attaches great importance to service and customer service. This is the reason that we are available from seven in the morning until twelve in the evening. I consciously do the help desk myself because I want to know what’s going on. It is important for us that our software is incredibly easy and simple to use.

“I am a stubborn but above all energetic entrepreneur, the word giving up does not occur in my vocabulary. I always try to see how something can be done more efficiently and easily”.

Rowie Rooth

As a student at HAS University of Applied Sciences in Den Bosch, I, Rowie Rooth,

have already come into contact with Joan and his program HorseManager. I was and still am very active in the equestrian sport and at that time I studied horse breeding. After my education I started working as a freelancer in the horse sector and worked on various projects by supporting coordination and communication. That’s how my job at HorseManager started. I support in communication and help customers get started with the program. Do you have questions, do you want to give HorseManager a try or do you need help with entering all data, I can help you with that!.

In addition to the projects, I always worked as an instructor and I rode different horses in the (dressage) sport. I now run my own stable at Schansstraat in Oirschot. Focused on the training & training of different horses, instruction & guidance for all ages and levels and I offer a few stables for boarding. So a versatile company, where I have all the details of my horses, customers and financial matters to hand.

Every horse has its own logbook and training schedule, all lessons are planned, instructors are up to date, boarding clients know about boxing and billing is a breeze.

Through my experiences at my own stable, I know all the ins and outs of using HorseManager on a training, instruction and sports stable. I tell more about it with great enthusiasm!

Bo van Gorkum

Me, Bo van Gorkum, is a year-end student at the HAS Hogeschool in Den Bosch. My love for horses has been raised there. I rode pony early on and wanted to compete in as many competitions as possible. At that time I was convinced that I would later become top-rider with my own stable. With my high school diploma in the pocket I decided to follow a course. I received many advice to study something where you did not learn the basics of the course, but especially the part around it, or the facets that you as an entrepreneur need in the future. You learned the real thing in practice. That was exactly what I did, I chose to study Business Administration and Agrifoodbusiness, and I gained more knowledge in the areas of finance, logistics and marketing. After having completed a number of internships, I thought it would be great to get away from the office and be able to pursue your own goals with your own business. I became so enthusiastic about doing business that after my specialization in Marketing I chose to follow Top Class Business.

This is exactly where I am now. I hope to be able to make a start in entrepreneurship after this year, with a clear vision for HorseManager about the future.

“I am an enthusiastic, determined and innovative business student who is ambitious and energetic. In addition, I am resourceful and communicative, specializing in marketing in the Agricultural sector”.
