This summer again, especially for foreign visitors, a three-day course will be organized by the KWPN prior to the KWPN Championships at the KWPN center in Ermelo.
During this course various topics will be explained by top KWPN professionals: linear scoring, breeding values, DNA-selection, stallion choices and of course also how to judge a horse and how to train your eye.
During these days participants will also test their newly acquired skills in practice on the young dressage and jumping horses as well as during the Mare Keurings and will receive a certificate by the KWPN. This course is an amazing opportunity for breeding enthusiasts and will get you better acquainted with the KWPN selection procedure.
Participants will have personal assistance by a KWPN official for any help needed during their stay. There will be a KWPN inspector/official available for special questions at all times, during the scheduled sessions.
If wished we can also organize as an extra a private visit to a stallion stud/breeding/training stable. Please inform us which breeding directions interest you so we can make it the best possible match within your interests. Costs for transportation to and from the stable will be added to the price if provided by KWPN.
Course Fee is €899,- per person. The fee includes hotel accommodation with breakfast for two nights, transportation to and from the hotel, lunch and drinks all three days.
