The reserve licensing champion Governor (by Totilas x Jazz) became the highest scoring 3-year old in the 2014 KWPN Autumn Stallion Performance Testing which concluded on 15 November 2014 in Ermelo, The Netherlands.
One older dressage stallion participated in a shortened version at the autumn testing. Capri Sonne JR (by Rhodium x San Remo) passed the testing with flying colours and actually received the highest score this autumn with 86 points. However due to his age he is far more advanced in his training than the recently saddle broken youngsters. The 7-year old Capri Sonne Jr bested Governor by 0.5 points. Wim Ernes, chair of the stallion committee, commented that Capri Sonne Jr "stood out with his balanced character and rideabiity."
Seven 3-year olds participated in the full 70-day testing and only one was not accepted, Gaucho (by Apache).
The top scoring 3-year old was the black Governor, who achieved a total of 85.5 points. Guardian S (by Bodyguard) scored 84.5 points and Galaxy Win T (by Apache) got 84. The latter colt has been renamed Grand Galaxy Win. Google (by Bordeaux x Johnson), whose name is now suprisingly spelled Googel by the KWPN society, scored 82 points
The KWPN colts that have now achieved full approval are:
- Grand Galaxy Win (Apache x Jazz x Zeoliet)
- Guardian S (Bodyguard x Trento B x Juventus)
- Googel (Bordeaux x Johnson x Kommandeur)
- Gyon (Charmeur x Jetset-D x G.Ramiro Z)
- Governor (Totilas x Jazz x Ulft)
- Gunner KS (Belissimo x Vincent x Donnerhall)
- Capri Sonne Jr. (Rhodium x San Remo x Glendale)
