Nick van der SandeManager/Trainer/Driver
I went to DB in 1985 with a background of farming and horses including horse work for film makers here in New Zealand and in Australia. I was responsible for training and driving the team and after twelve months was made manager, an experience I enjoyed immensely.
With DB I developed public relations and public speaking skills, and learned the meaning of true professionalism. I learned the importance of developing high standards in all areas and never letting them slip.
Together with my wife Jill, who has always worked with me and is a competant horsewoman herself, we took the DB Clydesdales to their position of national promenance.
