This morning, fifteen show jumping stallions were successfully delivered for the 35-day performance test. Two stallions can still be delivered next week.

The stallion selection committee convened to assess a total of nineteen show jumping stallions under their own riders. The Mumbai son Rich and Royal had a small wound and can be delivered again next week, as can the Chacco-Blue son Check Out Blue Z (dam sire: Heartbreaker), who was voluntarily offered. Two other stallions had issues with their vaccinations in their passports, and therefore cannot take up residence at the KWPN center.

Suitable for testing
The performance test began today for fifteen three-year-old stallions, including premium stallions Raikkonnen LK (Landino VDL x Zirocco Blue VDL) from VDL Stud and R (Mattias x Guidam) from the Tewis family. "The stallion selection committee has found the delivered stallions suitable for testing and will assess the stallions every Tuesday. It is unfortunate that two stallions did not have their vaccinations correctly filled out in their passports; according to the regulations, they should have been vaccinated against influenza and rhino at least two weeks before the test," explains senior inspector Henk Dirksen.

Delivery of older stallions
The first saddle presentation for older show jumping stallions, which can be delivered in two weeks, resulted in one newly designated stallion. The four-year-old Carambole son Pura Vida (dam sire: Stakkato) from Jan Greve and Arie Hoogendoorn is therefore expected back on April 23. On that day, the stallions A Moonlight Speciale Z (by Aganix du Seigneur) and Don Tarpania (by Dominator Z), previously designated via the stallion competition, can also be delivered for the 21-day test. The final presentation will take place on May 14.
