Adelheid Showjumpers is a studfarm with the objective to breed international showjumping horses. The basis was laid by Jan Riemens when he bought the Gelders mare Ekini in 1966. At that time his daughter Ria Remijnse-Riemens was starting at national level in the showjumping and eventing sport on the gelding Jupiter. They were successful at reputable shows such as Meppel, Veendam and ‘Gouden Ei’ in Barneveld. Jan Riemens continued to breed from Ekini’s daughter Jolet who produced for him the international showjumping horse Normi (Bert Heijman).

driehoekSince 1974 Ko and Ria Remijnse are living in Heythuysen. In order to be able to trace and distinguish their breeding products, all foals from 1992 onwards were given the suffix ‘Adelheid’, which refers to the daughter of Farn with the same name. Critical selection and a clear focus on sport stallions resulted in a very high percentage of international showjumping horses, such as Kyra Adelheid (Bart Bles), Love It (James Lala), Lord Adelheid (Bert-Jan van de Pol), Roxy Adelheid Z (Richard Spooner), Quartz Adelheid Z (Gregory Wathelet), Almé Adelheid Z (Mans Buurman) and Zypria Adelheid Z (Henry de Wulf). In addition, Zangersheide stallion Quartz II Adelheid Z (Tim Rieskamp-Goedeking) won the Dortmund Championship and the KWPN stallion Regino Adelheid (Camilla Enemark) started in the Nations Cup Finals in Rotterdam and the EC in Madrid.
Jac Remijnse started to specialize in sport horse breeding at an early age. His company Horse Genetics published among others the magazine Sport Horse Breeding. Also the philosophy of Adelheid Showjumpers has been changed with the introduction of new showjumping lines. These new lines started in 1998 with the purchase of a mare from the famous Ascona-line (Zandor Z). Later followed by the Libelle-line (Artos Z), Girl Z-line (Robin I Z), Fairness Z-line (Rinnetou Z), Pieruschka-line (Priamus Z) and Nini-line (Ginus). Excellent showjumping lineages that provide the outstanding foundation of Adelheid Showjumpers.
