The harness horse stallions with the most foals in 2023
Earlier this week, the dressage and showjumping stallions with the most foals in 2023 were highlighted. As we reflect on this year, we see that so far, 11,000 foals have been registered with the KWPN, and you can still register your foal. Which harness horse stallions sired the most foals in 2023?
Out of the 11,000 foals, the distribution between show jumping and dressage foals is approximately equal, with roughly 5,000 foals registered for each discipline. Additionally, 168 Gelderland foals and 519 carriage horse foals have been registered.
Top 5 sires
- Macho (by Indiana) - 99 foals
- Icellie (by Bocellie) - 71 foals
- Magnifiek (by Idol) - 35 foals
- Cizandro (by Waldemar) - 25 foals
- Idol (by Manno) - 23 foals
Have you not registered your foal yet?
If you haven't registered your foal yet KWPN offers foal registration services, where everything is taken care of for you after registration. You can register your foal in one go, and in doing so, you also apply for the passport. The paternity test of the sire is added as an extra service. If you live in the Netherlands or Belgium, your foal will be sketched and chipped by a KWPN passport consultant, and your foal will be reported in the National Database. Throughout the first year of your foal's life, you will receive several mailings with relevant information.
