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 4,000 horses and is unparalleled in Europe has emerged over the years.
Around 250 employees look after the well-being of the horses, which are kept in spacious stables and in speciesappropriate herds in the expanses of the Lewitz.
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. The “Stern-Buchholz” site is outside the gates of the state capital Schwerin.
The team headed by Birgit Brandsätter and Paulo Castro here is responsible
for breaking in all the horses, as well as for the further training of the dressage horses and the preparation of the colts for licensing.
Please notice that applicants from non-EU countries must have a work permit or EU passport for working in Germany.
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 during doctor’s visits if necessary and help you with anything else that you need. We will do everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible for you.
