The 3-year old chestnut mare Gamante D was named 2014 KWPN Mare Champion at the KWPN Horse Days in Ermelo, The Netherlands, on Friday 15 August 2014.
Eleven mares were selected for the champion's ring and four were asked to do a final trot once more before judges Ine van Deurzen, Toine Hoefs and Dirk Reijne before they made their final decision.
Gamante D (by Contango x Jazz), bred and owned by J & H. Dielissen from Rosmalen, The Netherlands, was named champion because of her powerful expression and movements.
The Tango x Welt Hit II offspring G-Star VZ, bred by A. Koenen, became the reserve champion. The young mare stood out with her suppleness.
Ghanaica (by Charmeur x Sandreo) finished third. She is bred by C. van Heuckelum and owned by C. van Baalen.
