About Me

I started breeding in 1982. Over the years, I've bred more than 350 horses. More than 45 of them made it to the upper levels of dressage and jumping: among them 16 FEI Grand Prix dressage horses and one international Grand Prix show jumper (Pakonane with Richard Spooner). 

Per September 2021, I am retired from breeding. I sold all my horses and property and will live at Osierlea in San Juan Bautista with one horse I will keep for myself. 

A saying I use often is: 'Function over fashion'. Another one is: 'Handsome is as handsome does'. What use is a beautiful horse if you can't ride it? 

My breeding goal has always been to breed high quality, correct, durable, levelheaded, amateur friendly sport horses. Take a look at the speech I gave during the KWPN-NA Annual General meeting in Hanford, California, in March 2020, where I explain my breeding goals and mottos. I also explain where the name 'Lio Lomas Dutch Warmbloods' comes from.
