Rob Hoekstra and Joao Pereira Coutinho part company.
After nearly 3 years working together Rob and Joao have decided to stop their working relationship. Joao is keen to leave Portugal and explore other riding possibilities in Northern Europe. Injuries to his top horses have restricted him from competing at the level he had achieved over the last few years. With no new horses coming along he wants to work on a different concept. Rob will continue to work with his other students and give clinics in different parts of the world and look at new opportunities within the sport. They will remain good friends.
