Joop van Uytert decided to withdraw Hermès N.O.P. (s.Easy Game) from the presentation at the KWPN Stallion Show after consultation with Dinja van Liere and coach Rieky Young. A few days ago, the stallion put up a dazzling performance to grasp the victory in the World Cup qualification of Amsterdam. “The sport comes first now”, Van Uytert explains.

“I deem it important to show our stallions to the breeders when possible and for that reason I also think it is important to give an explanation if we decide not too”, Joop van Uytert shares. Hermès would give act de presence together with Glamourdale in a exciting conclusion to the Friday night. 

“We think a presentation at the stallion show is a bit too much for Hermès at the moment. He gave an incredible performance at Jumping Amsterdam and Indoor Brabant is right around the corner. From a welfare perspective, this seems the best choice to us.”

“Rieky strongly advised against a presentation of Hermès at the stallion show and I think it is crucial to listen to a coach. It would be such a shame for the sport if he were to sustain an injury. The sport must come first now, and I am sure the breeders understand that. Fortunately, Den Bosch offers a fantastic programme this week that has plenty more to offer for all the sport and breeding enthusiasts.”
