About EquineSand

About Anita

My name is Anita, I started EquineSand after working at greenSand for about a year. One afternoon I drove back to the office with director Eddy Wijnker. During this ride we passed the equestrian sports center of the KNHS. When I pointed this out and started talking about it, Eddy saw my passion for equestrian sports. Together we developed this into my company EquineSand. In this way I can turn my passion into my job, and also do something good for our planet!


I grew up in the village of Hijken among the horses. After high school I studied commercial economics at the Hanze university of applied sciences. During my studies it was said by one of my fellow students that you should not do this course if you wanted to do something good for the planet. I would like to prove the contrary. With my company I would like to contribute to a livable future on this planet.

What I do

With EquineSand I offer equestrian surfaces with olivine sand. Olivine is not only good for the future of our planet, but also for the well-being of the horses. I offer equestrian surfaces in collaboration with Lekhaven BV in Wijk bij Duurstede, IFH Transport in Almere and greenSand Enkhuizen.

Thanks to the collaboration with these companies, I have a team of specialists around me. In addition, I am regularly busy doing or commissioning research at colleges or universities. For more information about this or to submit or apply for a research or internship, for example, you can always contact me. This can be done via info@equinesand.nl.
