DVB horses

DVB Youngsters & Breeding

With several broodmares out of proven sporting pedigrees, Dressuurstal Van Baalen assures itself of talent for the future. At DVB, several foals are born each year. After the rearing period at Van Baalen Farms, these return to the sport stable, after which lunging and driving are taken up. This way the whole way from foal to Grand Prix remains completely in our own hands.

Zinni of Wittenstein

All lines bred at Dressage Stable Van Baalen are quality sport lines. The oldest and best known of these is the line of Zinni van Wittenstein, which Arie van Baalen Sr. further developed together with his cousin Gerard Vervoorn. Some famous horses from this line are Inspekteur (by Darwin), Habibi (by Ulft), Elton John (by Jazz), Finesse (by Aktion), Pasternak DVB (by Gribaldi), Nadine (by TNC Partout) and Zigeuner DVB (by Gribaldi).

Quality sports lines

In the breeding of Dressage Stable Van Baalen, breeding a Grand Prix horse is the goal. Therefore, both in the mare line and in the selection of stallions, we look for proven lines with a lot of athletic ability.

In addition to the Zinni van Wittenstein line, Dressuurstal Van Baalen is bred with the mare line of the successful NMK mare Davina (by Johnson – 95 points in the IBOP), from which the Grand Prix horse Habibi DVB (by Don Schufro) and the KWPN-approved stallion Kaiser DVB (by De Niro) descend. Out of the purchased NMK mare Erludine (by Jazz) was born Jacky Kennedy DVB (by Damsey).
