Thé platform for Dutch Sport Horse Breeding

This week, eleven dressage stallions and 23 jumper stallions started their performance test ath the KWPN-Center in Ermelo. 

Thirteen dressage stallions were presented by their regular riders. With two stallions in the arena, they were shown to the committees to assess their trainability and get a first impression of their basic gaits. After that, the veterinary surgeon checked their health. Stallion 42 (HK ’17 340) Bordeaux x Painted Black was redirected to the fall test. The Uthopia-son with 52 (HK ’17 562) ds.UB 40, got a veterinary remark. He can start the test 7 days later. The Chair of the Stallion Selection Committee dressage, Bert Rutten, is positive about the eleven stallions that have taken a stall at the KWPN Centre. “We have seen a few really nice stallions, and obviously also a few that have to improve. But overall, we saw stallions that showed nice rideability for their age and we start with a positive feeling.”

23 jumper stallions passed this first inspection and could start the test. Due to a veterinary remark, 13 (Flying Dream x Indorado) is redirected to the fall test. Stallion Committee chair Cor Loeffen: “A promising collection young stallions, that in general could be ridden quite nicely. They were fresh, in a good way. This gives confidence for the rest of the performance test.”
Under the jumper stallions is the Top 4 of the Championship in Den Bosch. Champion was Kannan-son 17/185 Juventus V G (ds.Indoctro), second was 12/147 Jonkheer de Span, from the first crop of Farfan M (ds.Calvin Z), third 27/574 (Zapatero VDL x Mermus R) and fourth 20/218 (Padock du Plessis x Vainqueur). All four of them are now housing a stall in Ermelo.
