Two 3-year old stallions were accepted:  Bossanova Crystal (by Bon Courage out of Diandra de Halliers (by De Niro) and Sir Sawyer Francis (by Sir Arthur Carrus x Riant).

The chestnut stallion Vivito de Halliers, by Vivino out of Weihe Glück (by Totilas), is bred and owned by Maija Korpivaara and was presented by Hassan Iber. The 4-year old was given a one-year breeding licence and named champion of the licensing.

The other "older" dressage bred stallions that were accepted were Ganger Helas (by Governor x Bretton Woods) and Prime Time (by Painted Black x Negro).
