The second-round viewing for dressage stallions has come to an end. After granting an invitation to the performance test to 31 dressage stallions, the stallion committee appointed 13 more stallions. This brings the total to 44. Five stallions could come back to the concluding premium presentation.
34 stallions were presented in the second-round viewing, thirteen of them were advanced to the performance test. Just Wimphof showed his first crop and certainly did not dissappoint: four of his sons were appointed. Geniaal (2) and Totilas (2) also saw more than one of their offspring advance to the final phase. Four stallions were asked to come back for the premium presentation. One stallion was added to this prestigious round: Next Pitch US (Geniaal out of It’s A Litchy PROK by Hotline) owned and bred by Unlimited Stables in Lunteren.
The stallion selection for dressage stallions was concluded with a successful presentation of the five premium stallions.
In hand they showed their talents once more. The breeders will be honoured at a later stage, then they will receive a breeder premium provided by ‘Friends of the KWPN’. Chairman of the stallion selection committee Bert Rutten spoke in superlatives when describing the five premium stallions:
– Nirvano (For Ferrero x Charmeur)
– Nirvana (Governor x Vivaldi)
– Nobel Prins (Indian Rock x Wyntonl)
– Next Level (Jarville x Prestige VDL)
– Next Pitch US (Geniaal out of It’s A Litchy PROK by Hotline)
