Young Eventing Horses

KWPN horses are making impressive inroads as eventers. Even though the eventer is not a specific breeding direction within the KWPN studbook, more and more Dutch bred horses appear to be very talented in the fastest growing discipline of the equestrian world. The KWPN has started up various initiatives to stimulate this trend: the assessment of 4-year-old eventing horses, the KWPN-championship for the 5-year-old eventing horses and the KWPN Eventinghorse Sale in cooperation with Military Boekelo.


KWPN-championship for 5-year-old eventing horses
The KWPN-championship for 5-year-old eventing horses during the KWPN Championships is a unique opportunity to scout talented young KWPN horses for eventing. This scouting in an early stage can prove to be a positive incentive. The cross country is built in an inviting way, so that way also horses that have little experience in the eventing domain, but familiar with regular jumping courses, can participate.  Other than in regular cross country competitions, time is not of the essence, but the way the horse behaves himself in the field is more important.

The battle of the five-year-old eventing horses consists of three parts: a presentation of the horse’s gaits (dressage), a jumping course and the cross country. During the presentation of the gaits there are maximum three horses in the arena at the same time. After that a jumping course (1.00-1.20 metres) must be completed.

A qualified jury evaluates the horses in the cross country on three different aspects: technique and balance in the field and in the jumps, willingness and ride-ability and of course the quality of the canter.

The final ranking is made up according to the following formula: The dressage result is divided by 10 and multiplied by 4. The jumping result is divided by 2 and is deducted from the dressage result. The result of the cross country is the sum of the three marks multiplied by 2 and added to the dressage result.

In order to participate, the combination must be qualified to jump 1.10 metres jumping competitions or eventing competitions at novice level.

The championship is open to mares, geldings and stallions that in the year of the championship will reach the age of five. They also have to be KWPN registered in the Foal Book or Register A, Register B or admitted to the main studbook of the KWPN.

KWPN Eventinghorse Sale
The selection of auction horses for the KWPN Eventer Sale takes place among others during the championship for five-year-old and the assessment for four-year-old eventing horses. The KWPN Eventer Sale is an auction of talented young eventing horses that will be organised during Military Boekelo. For more information about the auction please contact the Sales Promotion department:
