At the 2022 KWPN Horse Days on 5 August 2022, Wileke Bos of Stal 104 has been proclaimed KWPN Breeder of the Year 2022.
There is no denying Bos' breeding programme, especially after the 2022 KWPN Stallion Licensing in which she had no less than three premium stallions and a fourth licensed stallion from her yard!
In a relatively short time, Bos and Stal 104 in Wijdewormer, The Netherlands, developed into a leading Dutch warmblood breeder. Willeke only took up "serious" breeding 15 years ago and through good and advice she turned her business into a thriving one, both in breeding and sport.
It all began when she bought the foal Vitalis (by Vivaldi x D-Day) together with horse dealer and stallion owner Eugene Reesink. Vitalis sold to Charlotte Jorst and later on to Lone Boegh Henriksen/Paul Schockemöhle to become a foundation stallion.
Since then, Bos' horses have competed at the Olympic Games (All at Once) and European Youth Championships (Fynona). She has four breeding products at Grand Prix level and seven at small tour level.
Her success at the 2022 KWPN Licensing was beyond comparison. She has bred premium colts Opoque (by All at Once x Davino VOD), Otazu (by All at Once x Negro), and One-Two-Three (by Vivaldi x D-Day). She also bred One-Two-Three's full brother My Vitality, and Jameson RS2. Horses with the suffix "Taonga" also originate from her barn.
