In 1966 a few people from Tilburg wanted to organise a international horse show to honor their fellow townsman Toon Ebben. Ton Jansen, Harrie van Dijk and Henk Brands wanted to use the new Ijshall in Tilburg, but there was no space available. The mayor of ‘s-Hertogenbosch at the time, Robert Lambooy, heard that they were in contact with the Brabanthallen and called Daddy Stibbe: “Something equestrian is going to happen in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, but they are all from Tilburg. That can not be and they are looking for a show president. You should do that and my daughter can manage the secretariat.” That is how Daddy Stibbe became the first show president of Indoor Brabant in 1966. This all happened just three months before the start of the first edition. Daddy Stibbe was able to make Indoor Brabant a real happening from the start.
