Jan van de Kamp established de Havikerwaard in 1995, in the former brickworks Steenfabriek Bingerden. The complex is situated on the river de IJssel, in the countryside between Arnhem and Zutphen. The business has developed as a result of his passion for breeding and top-level sport. Van de Kamp: “Applying your own insight and then seeing that it works, that is what we do it for!”
We have around 10 broodmares who regularly produce beautiful foals. But we don’t only bring up our own foals, we regularly purchase promising foals. We are proud that a number of horses bred or brought on by de Havikerwaard attract international attention. Babylotte, Wolisco DDH, Lord Sandro, El Divo and Waylotte DDH, for example. In our opinion good breeding starts with a sport horse producing dam-line, in combination with the ability of the Holsteiners, the hardiness of the Selle Français and the speed of the KWPN horses.
