All eight dressage stallions participating in the final presentation have been successfully approved. Proud James (s.Jameson RS2) and Pjethro (s.Kjento) made the greatest impression with scores of 91 and 87 points, respectively.

In the case of Proud James (Jameson RS2 out of Cyraniek elite PROK by Johnson, breeder Yolien van Maasacker) from Andreas Helgstrand, this was the last examination in which the stallion inspection committee assigned scores. Proud James achieved a historic score with a perfect 10 for posture & balance, along with 9s for all other components. Bert Rutten commented, "This grey stallion has incredibly good balance, very good movement technique with a well-engaging hind leg, an uphill tendency, and a fantastic character. He is very trainable and light-footed." Proud James is also the half-brother of the KWPN-approved Small Tour stallion Inverness (s.Everdale).

Top scorer
Another top scorer was Pjethro (Kjento out of Jaomie elite IBOP-dres D-OC by Desperado, breeder A.J. Beerens), who received a score of 87 points. Gertjan van Olst is (co)owner of Pjethro, one of the three stallions he received approval for. "The characters of the stallions in this examination have really stood out positively, and this can certainly be said of Pjethro. He is very willing to work, has a lot of 'go,' and moves with a lot of impulsion, power, and posture." In this examination, two sons of the world champion Glamourdale were also approved. The reports will be published as soon as possible.
