Our foundation mares match highest requirements
When choosing the perfect mares for our breeding shed, we have been setting high standards for many generations, particularly with regard to health, performance capabilities and willingness to perform. We only breed with Elite mares that are likely to be nominated state premium mare. All of them have first-class x-rays, and they match highest expectations when it comes to pedigree and bloodline combination. Only mares with special properties are deemed worthy to become foundation mare at the Zuchthof Dree Böken.
As we can only keep a limited number of foundation mares (+/- 6 – 8 horses), all of them state premium mares, we regularly offer top progeny for sale.
Besides the foundation mares, we regularly use young mares in our breeding shed for one or two years who are then scheduled to start their sports career, like for example Wertherroeschen (dam of Stakkato Gold), state premium mare Pretoria (dam of Vulkano FRH and Loro Piana Athletica), Loro Piana Athletica (dam of King Kolibri), Adis Abeba (dam of Virginia) and Virginia (dam of Goldstar, state premium mare Piroschka, state premium mare Silberrose, state premium mare Silberroeschen and many others more).
Although we do not ignore conformation, we certainly know that you cannot eat from a beautiful table alone. Perfect rideability and character as well as performance potential, longevity, toughness, strength and willingness to perform are very important to us, predominantly also when using thoroughbreds.
Well-qualified dam lines
Our approved and performance-tested dam lines regularly produce licensed stallions, Elite auction horses, winners and winners in a row in advanced level tests, but also successful show mares, Elite families, state premium mares, competitors at the Louis-Wiegel-Show, Ratje-Niebuhr-Show, Herwart von der Decken-Show and at Federal Championships. You will also regularly meet offspring at the German Federal Championships and/or later at international tournaments all over the world.
