ApHC Netherlands Director

Wiebe Lise and Steve TaylorThe director for the ApHC in Europe, Netherlands specifically, is Wiebe Lise (Left of Steve Taylor). He’s also a Steve Taylor look alike. You can see that better when Steve takes off his hat which he refused to do for this picture.

Wiebe says that raising Appaloosa horses in Europe is very much like raising them anywhere. He’s really happy that U.S. horses came to Europe about 25 to 30 years ago. Since then they’ve built up the business and there are now 17 affiliates of the ApHC in Europe. He says that judges coming over to their shows says the quality of their horses is very good.

He says that European breeders share the same challenges as their American counterparts and hopes in his time on the board to foster more interaction between the ApHC and affiliate organizations.
