Welcome to De Bonte Drie
De Bonte Drie is located in the southeast of the province of Groningen, amidst a vast nature reserve, in the town of Mussel.
Miranda and Leon together run this company that is engaged in small-scale breeding, rearing and training of young Spanish horses. The PRE. Pura Raza Española. In other words, Andalusian, as the PRE is often called.
Since a few years they have also been breeding KWPN stallions in combination with PRE mares.
In the context of blood distribution in dressage horse breeding, a pilot is being started to register offspring of KWPN-approved stallions from pure-bred Lusitano or PRE mares. The offspring of KWPN-approved stallions from pure-bred Lusitanos and PREs (Pura Raza Espanola) are registered in the register A of the KWPN. They also receive a Dutch passport. By breeding horses from the combination KWPN stallion x Lusitano / PRE mare, an attempt is made to utilize the strong qualities of these two breeds (Lusitano and PRE) for dressage horse breeding: both the Lusitano's and the PRE's are known for their natural aptitude for and their great talent for passage and piaffe.

All this is combined in a unique way with a care stable.
