As per usual, the KWPN Stallion Selection also features the finals of the Blom Stallion Competition Jumping and the Anemone Horse Trucks Stallion Competition Dressage. The jumping finals take place on Thursday night, while the Saturday afternoon is all about dressage. The starting lists have been published. The finals offer a unique opportunity to see young KWPN stallions compete against their peers.
In the L-class jumping, two stallions kept their slates clean thusfar: Mindset ES (Aganix du Seigneur out of Hosanne ES keur sports-spr by Kannan, bred/owned by E.Schep of Tulle n ‘t Waal) and Maximus VDL (Zirocco Blue VDL out of Daloma elite IBOP-spr sport-spr PROK by Verdi, bred by H.W.J.

During the KWPN Stallion Selection next week you get to enjoy numerous young promising dressage stallions. In the L-class, 33% of the contestants advanced to the final. This also applies to the M-level class and in the Z-class the two best horses qualified. The other stallions show their talent in a presentation. Multiple stallions enter the arena simultaneously and demonstrate their qualities with their rider. A commentary is provided for each stallion, giving you as a viewer a clearer image of these stallions. The very best finalists advance to the final test and they have a chance of winning the stallion competition.
