Job Description

In 1992, Paul Schockemöhle a successful businessman and former European Show Jumping Champion
purchased a large site in the expanses of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
On no less than 3,000 hectares of land in the heart of the protected landscape of the Lewitz, a centre for modern horse breeding which accommodates 5.500 horses and is unparalleled in Europe has emerged over the years. A constantly progressing health management and the stud-owned vet clinic provide the perfect care for the horses.These are best prerequisites to guarantee breeding and training at the highest possible professional level.
Almost 350 employees, among them 14 vets, are work around the clock for the benefit of the animals and ensure perfect conditions for the approx. 700 foals that are born every year.

As a rider at one of the three riding stables, you are responsible for the training and care of
the horses bred by Paul Schockemöhle. Many horses which will later cause a sensation in top level sport go through our hands. The daily routine gives you the opportunity to gather a lot of experiences and impressions in every respect. The fact that a renowned trainer is always available to support you will particularly help you with your personal development.

The riding stables entrusted with training the horses are three geographically separated farmsteads under a common organisational umbrella. At each of the individual sites, site managers look after the training of the horses with their teams. A jumping horse trained on the Lewitz stud runs through all three stations chronologically.

Finally, the jumping horses go to the third station, the “Scheckenhof”, with its spacious, light-flooded indoor riding arena and the idyllically located outdoor riding arena which is surrounded by the racecourse and in close proximity to the Neustädter See.
Dirk Hauser and Christina Heussler organise all the riding stables from here, and two highly renowned trainers are also employed – Thomas Mohr and Paul Niemz.

At the Scheckenhof, the further career of each individual horse is also decided.


Accommodation details

The stud’s own apartments, modern and practically furnished, give you affordable living space near your place of work and make it easier for you to form and strengthen social relationships even after you finish work. On request, you will be served breakfast and lunch in the stud’s own canteens.



Of course, we will help you with all the administrative issues which come up at the beginning, provide you with translating assistance and help you with anything else that you need. We will do everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible for you.
