The 2015 FEI World Breeding Championships for Young Dressage Horses (ages 5 – 6) take place August 5 – 9 in Verden, Germany. In order to compete in this prestigious event, eligible combinations must pass an extensive selection process. To this end, invitations will be extended to the top 30 horses from the 2014 Pavo Cup, the winners of the regional pre-selection competitions, and the five-year-old finalists from last year’s championships in Verden.
Henk van de Pol traveled to Spain to compete in the Sunshine Tour in Vejer de la Frontera, where he achieved good results with the KWPN-approved stallion Spartacus TN. The relatively new duo showed promise and finished fourth in the 1.50m Grand Prix.
Thanks to a strong team, Qatar captured the Nations Cup competition in Abu Dhabi. The top combination of the competition was Khalid Al Emadi with the Damiro daughter Tamira IV. In the Grand Prix, the best KWPN horse was Admara (s.Padinus), who ended in sixth place.

Thanks to two beautiful clear rounds, Alice Janout and the Indorado son Wodka Lime finished fourth in the 1.55m Grand Prix of the CSI3* in Graz, Austria. In the 1.45m, Marc Houtzager placed second with Bylou (s.Phin Phin).
At the re-selection and certification selection on Tuesday morning, February 17th, two stallions were invited for the performance test: one dressage horse and one jumper. This year's group of selected jumper stallions now totals 44. With the inclusion of today's dressage stallion, a total of 32 dressage stallions will take part in the performance test.
After the dressage stallion championship, it was time for the KWPN Select Sale (KSS). With only dressage stallions offered this evening, the highest bid was for the stallion selection champion: Handsome O, who proved himself head and shoulders above his competition and therefore convincingly captured the champion sash. The Johnson offspring was the first to be showcased in the KSS and immediately sparked a bidding war. Ultimately the final bid of €300,000 rested with Kirsten Andersen of Norway. She spoke proudly of her new gorgeous bay stallion: “We liked Handsome O from the moment he entered the viewing pen; it was love at first sight.”

Two stallions were presented in the third round viewing for Gelder horses, and both were selected for the performance test. According to Reijer van Woudenbergh, Chairman of the Stallion Selection Committee for Gelder horses: “Henkie has abundant nobility and presence, with sufficiently good Gelder type. He has solid legs and moves with excellent technique in the front leg and a strong hind leg.” Henkie is an Alexandro P son out of the provisional keur mare Beaujamanda by Upperville. He was bred by the Hekkert family in Wijhe.
The three-year-old harness horse stallions turned the Brabanthallen upside down. Among them, six were selected for the performance test in Ermelo.
Later in the evening, two more stallions were declared keur: Florencio I and Sir Sinclair.
