However, he is most renowned for his many years as Farming President and owner of castle Surenburg in Riesenbeck. Baron Constantin Heereman - today honorary chairman - together with the Kerkhoff couple, has been managing the business of the Zucht-, Reit- und Fahrverein Riesenbeck e.V.

The Zucht-, Reit- und Fahrverein Riesenbeck e.V. was founded in 1925. The riding association Riesenbeck organised a horse show at the Surenburg as early as 1949. In 1975, one remembered the old tradition of driving - since then, horse shows with national and international driving competitions and championships have been organised. A total of five world championships of the two- and four-in-hand drivers, the last in 2012, have been arranged at the premises of the equestrian sports centre Surenburg. But, also other riding sport disciplines find their platform here. Thus, show jumping and dressage competitions in heavy classes are offered regularly; event and vaulting are frequent guests at Riesenbeck.
