Only the best, out of the best

VISION AND PROFILE

Every year the Van Straaten family breeds around 25 foals from several prominent damlines. The strict selection based on health, attitude and quality, generates fruitful results. The fact ‘a good show jumper breeds a good show jumper’ is fully reflected in the breeding of the Van Straaten family. Van Straaten’s breeding products are successful all over the world; from the United States, Canada and Mexico to England, Ireland and Indonesia. A huge network and market area have been built up over the years.

 

Only the best mares

The Van Straaten family has already produced countless international show jumping horses and only the best mares are used for breeding. Most mares get two or three foals before they prove themselves in the sport. Thanks to the continuous selection, often short generation interval and the use of stallions that also represent first class damlines, the Van Straaten breeding has been lifted to a higher level. And by continuing breeding with only the very best damlines, both the jumping quality and health are strongly anchored in this breeding.

Foals for sale

Another continuous factor is the sale of all colt every year. And when there are enough mares to continue breeding with, the fillies will also be offered for sale. Many other breeders have already been successful in this way with mares that were bred by the Van Straaten family.

Because the homebred horses are also trained up to international level by the Van Straaten family themselves, there is a lot of insight into the attitude, quality and hardness of these horses. This information clearly contributes to the strict selection used by the Van Straaten family. Only the best is good enough, and therefore only the very best bloodlines are used for breeding.
