Rudi was born on May 2nd 1968 in Bree. He worked in construction for many years, most of which as a telescopic crane operator. Already since he was a child, he had a passion for horses. It was therefore a blessing in disguise when he could no longer work in construction and ended up at an equine vet. Here, he gained a lot of experience in taking care of horses and their rehabilitation. Both experiences as well in construction as with the equine vet can be perfectly combined in his current job at Via Nova.
