About Us

Situated in the picturesque countryside of Hulsel, The Netherlands, our historic farm boasts a legacy dating back to 1920. At Hulislaum, we are dedicated to breeding, raising, training, and cherishing 100% pure-bred, high-quality American Shetland Ponies registered in the American Shetland Pony Club (ASPC) studbook.

The American Shetland Pony, originating from the United States, has undergone over a century of selective breeding, resulting in a refined, athletic show and driving pony. At Hulislaum, we focus on the Modern and Classic types of ASPC ponies, as well as crosses between these types. In the past decade we have imported three champion breeding stallions and seven top quality mares to infuse the right bloodlines into our herd. Our breeding program is particularly unique in Europe, with a specialization in Modern ASPCs and Modern/Classic ASPC crosses.

With a commitment to quality over quantity, we maintain a modestly sized herd, producing only a few foals each year. This approach allows us to ensure each horse receives the attention and care it deserves, resulting in strong, well-built, spirited, and well-behaved ponies with highly animated movement.

Our ponies are highly suitable for various activities, including showing, agility, groundwork, and driving. Many of our breeding horses have achieved champion titles from prestigious events such as the ASPC Congress, including three ASPC (Reserve) Congress Grand Champions.

At Hulislaum, everything—from daily care to training, from photoshoots to website management—is handled by ourselves, reflecting our dedication to every aspect of our operation. We have a profound admiration for the American Shetland Pony breed, finding them to be spirited, energetic, friendly, and intelligent animals that bring joy to any setting.
