The Dutch warmblood society announced that the format of the VHO Trophy, a show/competition ridden at small and big tour level for KWPN licensed stallions at the annual KWPN Stallion Licensing, will be changed into "KWPN's Got Talent"
The VHO trophy is a platform for riders and stallion owners to present their sires in a kur to music to the crowds. The "KWPN's Got Talent" format will be a talent competition, judged by one dressage judge and two guest judges which are Dutch celebrities and have experience in choreography, acting and presenting. Each judge will give his own opinion and commentary.
This new format enables the riders to be more creative as not the technically best performing combination will win this show. In the kur all required movements of the chosen level have to be shown, though.
A total of six stallions will be participating in the KWPN's Got Talent competition and it will be on invitation only. The decision will be based on the stallions' results between March 2013 and 22 December 2013.
