New breeding values online
More and more breeders are using objective breeding science data to choose the best stallions for their mares. This data is represented in breeding values, which the KWPN has been calculating since 1987 for various traits in its breeding goal, such as sport, conformation, and health. Breeding values are based on data collected from various events and from studies conducted on KWPN-registered horses. Read more about Breeding Values in the document below:
Once a year, new breeding values are calculated for all horses in the KWPN Database. Breeding values for stallions are published annually online in the KWPN Database, by stallion, under the Genetic Profile tab. You can use the option 'Breeding values' to search for stallions with specific breeding values.
Breeding values for mares and other horses are also listed individually in the KWPN Database under the heading Genetic Profile. Breeding values for all horses must be at least 30% reliable to be published.
Sport breeding values for stallions are published in a rank table in the document below. Stallions are listed by breeding direction: dressage stallions, jumper stallions, Thoroughbred stallions, Gelder stallions and Harness horse stallions.
