Fourteen dressage bred stallions have been entered for the 2022 KWPN Autumn Stallion Performance testing which begins on Monday 31 October 2022.
The testing will begin with a saddle presentation. Fourteen have been entered including one dressage stallion who has not been licensed yet but hopes to achieve that status after a successful testing.
The autumn testing will feature several of the premium stallions of the 2022 KWPN Licensing last february, including Otazu, Opoque, One-Two-Three, as well as Gorgeous Black Art, who rolled onto the licensing path through the Pavo Cup.
The saddle presentation is the first moment where the stallions will be presented under saddle to the licensing committee. They will decide if the stallions' rideability and quality are up to standard to begin the 21-day testing.
In a press release, the KWPN society stressed the fact that it is forbidden to clip whiskers and ears.
