From today, Wednesday January 26th, onwards the corona measures are relaxed. That was announced by prime minister Rutte and minister Kuipers in the government’s press conference yesterday. Events are again permitted, be it under certain conditions and with a maximum number of visitors. The KWPN Stallion Selection however, shall be organised with no spectators. The entire program can be followed online via

A maximum number of 1.250 visitors are allowed for indoor events, with a fixed seating, a corona entry pass and upholding the 1.5-meter distancing. However, during the 2022 edition of the KWPN Stallion Selection, that takes place 2-5 February, it is unfortunately not possible to welcome the public. Earlier this month, the General Board of the KWPN had to make the decision to organise the event at the home base of the KWPN in Ermelo instead of the traditional venue in the Brabanthallen in Den Bosch because of the then current measures against the coronavirus and the uncertainty regarding the situation in February. As an association it was irresponsible to face such a financial risk if the stallion show in De Brabanthallen had had to be cancelled lastminute. The Amaliahal in Ermelo is therefore arranged so that the participating stallions can be optimally broadcasted via livestream. Consequently, there is limited seating available, which is used by the registered parties of the participating stallions (maximum one person per registered owner per stallion), breeders (maximum one person per breeder per stallion), the in-hand handler that presents the horse and the assistant handler. The National Equestrian Centre is not open to visitors. 

Hopefully we may return to organising a grand festive event in De Brabanthallen next year. Now, the organisation is making the final preparations for a wonderful online KWPN Stallion Selection and we hope you will ‘attend’ our four-day-event via livestream to follow all the performances, presentations and interviews.
