Hans Peter Minderhoud's new number one Grand Prix horse, Dream Boy, has been submitted to the NOP sponsorship plan.

NOP (Dutch Olympic Horse) is a foundation which provides financial support to the owner of the horse, so that it will not be sold abroad. 

The black KWPN licensed stallion Dream Boy (by Vivaldi x Ferro) is owned by Austrian Gaston Glock in partnership with Tim Coomans, Jacques Maree and Stable Brinkman.

"Dream Boy is only 10 years old and made a strong international show debut in April. Hans Peter and Dream Boy are members of the Olympic A-squad since July after the pair impressed in the nations' Cup in Rotterdam. Team trainer Rien van der Schaft selected them for the Dutch WEG team. In July the pair won silver at the Dutch Championships. Dream Boy is an absolute star for the future," said NOP chair Leko Sevingo.

Dream Boy joins dressage horses Expression, Avanti, and Zonik as NOP sponsored horses.
