Breeding values

To come to a well-considered stallion choice, a breeder can collect as much information as possible from the stallions he has in mind. The breeding values contain a wealth of information and are a useful tool for making stallion choices. The breeding values of the KWPN stallions are updated every year and the information collected in 2018 has also been bundled in the new breeding values. The overviews of the most important breeding values of the dressage, jumping, harness horse and Gelder stallions can be found via the links below.

KWPN Database

You can find the extensive breeding values per trait per stallion in the KWPN Database under the header ‘Genetic Profile’. With the search function you can also choose the 'Breeding Values' option to select stallions with specific breeding values.

The breeding values of mares can be viewed individually in the KWPN Database, also under the headier ‘Genetic Profile’. For all horses, the reliability of the breeding value must be 30% or higher to be eligible for publication.

Explanation breeding values

Every performance of a horse can be seen as the sum of predisposition (genetic predisposition of the horse) and environmental influences (training, rider, management, nutrition, etc.), also called the environment. For breeding it is about the genetic predisposition, because only that is passed on to the offspring. A breeding value is an estimate of that genetic predisposition. The KWPN calculates breeding values for sports, movement, conformation and health characteristics.
