The KWPN society and Dutch Equestrian Federation have held its first selection trial for young horses that want to be considered for team selection for the 2020 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden, Germany, on 5 - 9 August 2020.

Due to the corona pandemic the  first selection trial was one done by video. Team hopefuls had to send a video of their horse to the KWPN/KNHS in Ermelo for consideration. Sixty-two videos in total were sent in and 48 horses got selected. 

The Dutch WCYH selection committee, consisting of Floor Droge, Monique Peutz and Johan Rockx, reviewed all videos and drafted the following long list of combinations that will be invited to the selection trial, that will take place in the flesh. At the moment this trial is scheduled for 15 - 16 June in Ermelo.

Initially it was said that 20 horses per age category would be selected, but the committee picked sixteen 5 and 6-year olds and fourteen 7-year olds.

Biggest absentee on the list is the KWPN licensed stallion Jovian, who won the 5-year old division at the 2019 World Championships in Ermelo.
