Biography

After appearing at the Olympics as a groom for Max and Ernest van Loon in 1952, Toon Ebben embarked on a riding career of his own, which lasted for nearly thirty years. One of the best Dutch riders for much of the 1960s and 1970s, he achieved most of his successes with two horses, Kairouan and Jumbo Design. With the latter horse, Ebben won the team event at the 1977 European Championships, earning the team the Dutch Sports Team of the Year award. Ebben, who had won an individual bronze at that same tournament, again starred in the Dutch team at the 1978 World Championships in Aachen, where he led the Dutch to a second place.
