The autumn performance test is coming to an end and that means the stallions that are still stabled at the KWPN Centre in Ermelo are readied for the final presentation. Coming Saturday, two Gelder stallions and seven dressage stallions are presented in the final exam in Ermelo. 

The Gelder stallions are up first, their final presentation starts at 09.00 hours. At 10.00 hours the programme continues with seven dressage stallions. The chairman of the jury announces the result after each group. The breeders of the stallions are expected in the arena for the honouring ceremony with their breeding product. Following the inspection of the dressage stallions, the evaluation of the Gelder stallions on the outdoor terrain starts at 12 o’clock. The results of these stallions are announced immediately after.

After successful completion of the performance test, Gelder stallions must furthermore pass two one-day tests in the discipline other than the discipline examined during the performance test. Right after the honouring ceremony of the Gelder stallions, we will hence see a Gelder stallion that was registered after the spring performance test. Odin (Edmundo out of Buonaternel elite iBOP sport-dres pref PROK by Vitens, bred by M.H. Zwaneveld and P.E.M. Herwijer of Assen) will be presented in harness for the first time.
