Our History

The breeding farm and competition stables of the Bahle family were for decades a very well known and highly respected factor in the showjumping industry of Germany. For many years, the sports success was already combined with ambitious breeding activities on the basis of Holsteiner bloodlines and intensive cooperation with the studfarm Zangersheide.

While beautiful facilities and convincing success were part of the family's daily life, serious health problems of a new-born child caused in 1993 the immediate move to Canada. With the support of the Bavarian government and the strong support of the studfarm Zangersheide the Bahle operation started out bigger and stronger than ever as Okanagan Show Jumping Stables in Lumby, British Columbia where over the last twenty years an amazing success story took place.
