Wim was born in the 60’s and cannot imagine any other life than one with horses. He rode ponies as a child and then successfully switched to horses. He achieved excellent international results during his career. Nowadays, he is mainly active as instructor.
In 2000 Wim took part in the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses. He came 14th in the 6-year-old category with the horse VPS Melvin V (Flemmingh x Amor). One of his other top horses was Maxwill V (Goodwill x Dageraad). He competed in two European Dressage Championships with Maxwill V. In 2007 they achieved a 12th place with the team (La Mandria) and in 2009 an 8th place (Windsor, Great Britain). They competed together from 2007 until 2009 inclusive.
He then achieved good results with Neversfelde Feuer (Flemmingh x Cocktail). The horse however fell just short of making an international debut so daughter Jorinde took over the reins in 2012. That was not without success; the new combination won the Grand Prix in Diepenbeek with a score of 64.57%. Jorinde was 17 years old at the time.
One of his latest top horses is Pari Lani (Solos Landtinus x Fanal Prydsholm) with whom he formed a partnership from 2012 until 2014 inclusive. He won several gold medals (including Compiegne, 2013) with Pari Lani. In Jeneffe the combination rode a score of 67.92% and thus took the top place on the podium.
