Tom & Glenn Schoukens grew up at Pajottenland Arabians, the training center of their father nearby Brussels. Their dream was always the same: "working with Arabian horses". After finishing school, they started working full-time at several farms & training centers in Belgium, Germany and the USA.

In May 2003 Tom & Glenn felt confident & experienced enough to start their own training center, without any money, any clients and any securities: no need to say that this was victory itself at that time. They rented a small, cozy facility, built 12 stables and bought food, hay and straw...Schoukens Training Center was born! One year later, Tom and Glenn got the opportunity to move to a larger facility and each year and each show season they grew bigger. New clients came; "old" clients remained loyal and supported the Schoukens Bros. along the way to success. Tom & Glenn always say: "The key to everlasting motivation is to have loyal clients, for the good & the bad".

Things went well and more and more stables got occupied with some of the world’s finest Arabian horses. Although one cannot deny that there were a couple of special individuals that contributed to the success, one of them being a filly named Pandoraah, who won the All Nations Cup in Aachen with Tom. Then the magnificent Stallion MCA Magnum Gold, who won a lot of prestigious titles and whose daughter WA Magna Rouge was awarded Gold Champion filly with Glenn on the lead. Winning Silver, producing Gold. Then there was Shannan Al Madan from HRH Prince Abdullah Bin Fahd Al Saud who gave us our first title at the World Championships in Paris 2008, winning the Bronze medal. There was the famous & charismatic Eden C and the timeless beauty Queen SA Misha Apal, who won the All Nations Cup in 2009 with Tom. But most of all, the year 2009 was the one of Homebred Najdah Al Zobair, taking Gold in Dubai, Gold in Menton, Gold at the Elran Cup, Bronze in Aachen and she was named Unanimous 2009 World Champion Filly. Then, we proudly welcomed new studs and booked great successes till now. In May 2010 the exotic AJA Justified joined STC thanks to Malcolm & Jane Hickford from Aja Arabians.

Since the show barn was always full and the demands very high, Tom and Glenn decided it was time to buy their own home and farm and turn it into a great horse facility. 
Today they welcome you at their own Schoukens Training Center, located in Maldegem - Belgium.
Their facility has around 120 stables including some large mare & foal stables, a stallion quarantine and running stables for the foals. 
The horses go out in one of the beautiful fields around the farm, that cover an area of around 12 ha. There are 2 indoor arenas, an outdoor arena, an indoor horsewalker, a Vitafloor and some outdoor paddocks. 
Schoukens Training Center is also an officially approved AI Centre with breeding and lab facilities. 
After an update in 2016 to the office and a meeting room, friends and clients can have a pleasant stay at Schoukens Training Center. From the meeting room, you can see the horses in the indoor arena.

But Schoukens Training Center is more than Tom & Glenn Schoukens: it consists of an entire team of wonderful, dedicated and passionate people. Without them STC would not stand where it stands now, they are reliable and hardworking, they keep the engine running when Tom & Glenn are in the Middle East.

We believe that success is a journey, not a destination. There is no royal road to it - You have got to work much harder than most people who have no dreams. You will have to accept failures and learn from them. The 'doing' is usually more important than the 'outcome'. Believe in yourself and your capabilities. Never forget how to serve and, most of all, never lose the important values of life...
