Welcome to the dutch dressage breeding of Doede Santema

The breeding genes flow in our blood. Since the 60s dutch dressage breeder Doede Santema, has bred approved Shetland and Welsh stallions. Later on we bred  dutch dressage horses and in 2012 an approved stallion: ETOILE. Breeding is certainly not gambling.  Doede Santema’s mareline has produced over 15 approved stallions, 5 state premium mares in succession, UTV mares and last but not least performers in show jumping and dressage. The mareline is anchored in the best European dressage lines: Finnlӓnderin-stam (Don Schufro-Donnerhall) , the Dodona-stam (Romancier and Rubinstein1) and the Furioso xx-line.
