The breeding site Zuchthof Dree Böken – Prieros near Berlin – formerly located near the Dutch border – has been focused on breeding performance horses for decades. It is the birth place of many successful horses and champions you will meet at trans-regional shows, Federal Championships and stallion licensing events, but also at national and international tournaments.
It is our aim to breed champions for international competitions. This is the reason why performance has been firmly anchored in our dam lines for many generations. Breeding, raising and training are focused on above mentioned goals. Besides breeding basics, horse-appropriate raising and careful and sound training matching the development of the horse are an important basis to produce successful future champions. Always true to the motto: "Confidence leads horses to self-confidence."
The breeding site Zuchthof Dree Böken – Prieros was nominated winner in a nationwide contest for horse farms and horse-appropriate raising in 2007. And since that time, Zuchthof Dree Böken has been constructively further advanced.
Zuchthof Dree Böken – Prieros is made up of approx. 135 ha pastures, meadows and forests along the lake "Langer See" in the municipal Heidesee, village of Prieros, in the northern Spreewald south of Berlin, close to the airport Berlin-Schönefeld.
The stalls are designed in U-form. We transformed the individual stalls into huge run-in stalls including paddocks.
This ensures that the horses have enough space to move and a lot of fresh air all through the year – during the summer on the pastures along the lake "Langer See" and during the winter in the spacious run-in stables with paddocks.
The breeding site Zuchthof Dree Böken – Prieros has very early adapted to the so-called globalization, also in the field of horse breeding and raising.
The demands for horses at the advanced level sport in regards to performance, character, health, raising and training are that high today that only few breeding and raising sites can cope with these challenges in a horse-appropriate way.
This was one of the reasons why we introduced the horse-appropriate group raising method which helps to improve development, self-confidence and toughness.
Feeding is always adapted so as to provide the future champions with everything they require to develop age-appropriately. We ensure that vitamins, minerals and trace elements are always sufficiently provided during all stages of development, combined with an appropriate deworming program. The Zuchthof consequently sticks to the vaccination schedule for all horses when it comes to influenza and equine herpes.
To ensure the individual supply in feed and nutrients of each horse, all horses get tied during feeding (including the foals twice a day). This is certainly a lot of work, but an investment for the whole life of the horse as the imprinting process also happens already with the foals.
