Choosing a stallion
Choosing the right stallion to breed to your mare is a complex decision. Fortunately, we can help you in your decision-making process. The KWPN employs several professionals with expertise in bloodlines, who can provide you with breeding recommendations. In addition, we offer the KWPN Stallion Database, an online catalog of available KWPN-approved and KWPN-recognized stallions. This database contains extensive background information on KWPN stallions, as well as contact information for stallion keepers and availability of fresh or frozen semen.
Breeding and foal registration
Stallion keepers in the Netherlands must register breedings with the KWPN but are not required to report sales of semen. If you purchased semen from a KWPN-approved stallion and wish to register your foal with the KWPN, you can either ask the Dutch stallion keeper to report the breeding to us or you can contact us directly.
To record the breeding in My KWPN Dashboard, you must pay the applicable registration fee in order to report the subsequent birth of the foal. It is important to report the breeding at your earliest convenience. Doing so ensures that the breeding will be recorded and allows you to register the foal once it is born.
No registration fee is collected for barren mares, provided we receive notification before September 30th in the year the covering took place. A statement from the respective stallion keeper or the attending veterinarian is required for this purpose.
