Tiara Van Dongen

At the age of 6, I received my first pony. It was the beginning of a unstoppable passion for horses. A few horses later, in my early teens, I bought my first reiner ‘Ruf’. Together we entered the showpen numerous times … Thanks to Ruf & my parents, reining became just more than a passion. After some ‘reining’ holidays @Eifel Gold Ranch (Baeck family), I was asked to join their Pro team as assistent.

For 4 years I trained and showed at the sides of Cira Baeck (Million dollar rider) for the Eifel Gold Ranch team. I was privileged to be in one of Europe’s most beautiful facilities along one of World best trainers.

In 2016 I started my own business @Eifel Gold Ranch (Amel, BE). I relocated soon after to Quarterland (Geel, BE), a location easy accessible to my clients. Anno 2019, I moved to DA Stables (Herne, BE) to build out my career and enjoy reining more than ever!
