Thirteen dressage bred stallions have begun the 2016 KWPN Autumn Stallion Performance Testing in Ermelo, The Netherlands, on Monday 10 October 2016.
The colts will be performance tested for 50 days and the final presentation and exam will be on SaTurday 26 November 2016.
The testing began by a presentation of the young stallions under their own rider to prove their rideability and trainability to the testing committee. They were then vet checked and brought to the stall for their 50-day assessment.
Three stallions will get the opportunity to enter the testing late as of next week Wednesday. They are the Apache x Flemmingh x Sultan, the Davino x Vivaldi x Houston and the Negro x Jazz x Ulft. One stallion was dropped from the testing: the Johnson x Kennedy x Farrington.
