On the concluding day of the KWPN Stallion Show the stallion selection of dressage stallions has been finalized. Today’s 13 selected stallions raise the tally for the performance test to 33. On Friday four of those stallions were awarded a premium, today the stallion selection committee invited three more stallions to the prestigious premium round. 

This year is marked by quality over quantity. The seven premium stallions symbolize that, according to chairman Bert Rutten. “We are very pleased with the group of stallions we have been able to invite to the performance test. We were able to stay the course and were surely not influenced by numbers. The selected stallions all made a good impression, move with elasticity, have an uphill tendency, and generally boast a well-developed and appealing conformation”, Bert Rutten shares afterwards. “The seven premium stallions each convinced us with their type, pedigree, and movements. All horses that leave a lasting impression.”
