Korean Grand Prix rider Dong Seon Kim is not done shopping. After purchasing Kenzo, Bailador and Vuelve, the Olympian has now added the KWPN premium stallion Next Level to his collection. 

Next Level is a 4-year old KWPN stallion by Jarville out of Zodena (by Prestige VDL x Havidoff x Highline). He is bred by Willy van der Aa and was originally named Nucturn.

Owned by the breeder in partnership with Peter van de Sande, the black became a premium stallion at the 2021 KWPN Stallion Licensing in Ermelo, which were held behind closed doors due to Covid. 

Next Level began the KWPN Winter Stallion Performance Testing in December 2021, but dropped out midway for veterinary reasons. He is, therefore, not yet fully licensed with the KWPN until he completes the test. He has been invited to the testing in the spring of 2022.

The sale of the stallion to Dong Seon Kim includes the agreement that the horse will eventually end up in the stable of Helen Langehanenberg in Germany, but according to Peter van de Sande "Next Level will stay with us in training this year and be available to breeders."
