Jonkara was bought at the Oldenburger Elite Auktion in Vechta in the year before.
In 1996 also the filly O.Esther s. Jazz x Ulft x Amor was bought from the famous breeders Huub and Tiny van Helvoirt.
In the years after Ton en Emmy acquired several mares, Rullienda Ster s. Rubinstein x Buceaphalos and Mandolina Elite s. Rubinstein x Figaro.
The Rubinstein blood matches very well with the Contango blood and is the core of De Jeu breeding, the trainability, the fantastic character and the willingness to please is part of their successes in sport.
In 1999 Ton and Emmy bought a farmhouse with facilities for horses in Oosterstreek to start realizing their dream: breeding with top quality mares to get top quality dressagehorses.
Ton rebuilt the house and barn with passion and care but helas when the work was finished and they were ready to start their dream, he got ill and sadly died April 2001.
Sisther de Jeu was the last foal Ton bought and as a tribute to him Emmy added the prefix “de Jeu” to Sisther and all the horses that were bred by De Jeu Dressage afterwards.
The name De Jeu stands for quality and we aim to keep up the standard as much as we can.
Our successes in the last decennium proves we are on the right track!
