Fourteen dressage bred colts have begun the 2021 KWPN Winter Stallion Performance Testing, which kicked off at the KWPN headquarters in Ermelo on 28 December 2021.
The performance testing is a mandatory phase for KWPN licensed stallions in order to get a full breeding permit for the studbook.
Twenty dressage colts were registered for this winter testing, but only 14 of them were given permission to begin the 21-day testing.
The 3-year olds Navarone D (by Finest Selection x Sir Donnerhall), Navajo Indiana Jones BK (by For Ferrero x De Niro), Nyandro JZ (by Geniaal x Jazz) and 4-year olds Monsieur-Utopia (by Expression x Uphilll), Masterpiece (by Vitalis x Ampere) and Serfaus (by Schwarzgold x Don Frederico) were sent back home by the inspection committee based on veterinary reason or because the committee deemed them not ready.
Three 4-year olds were presented and none passed.
"In general the colts were rideable and trainable," said Bert Rutten, who chairs the stallion licensing committee. "The horses moves nicely uphill and showed movements that we are looking for. The next 21 days will teach us more. The first assessement is next Monday."
The final exam will be on 18 January 2021.
