Four dressage bred stallions have been dropped from the 2016 KWPN Autumn Stallion Performance Testing in Ermelo, The Netherlands, two weeks into the 50-day testing.
Little over one week into the testing, the seventh placed KWPN premium stallion Incredible (by Charmeur x Gribaldi x Clavecimbel) as well as the nameless (by Hofrat x Zhivago x Ferro) were withdrawn. They will be able to try again during the 2017 spring testing. Incredible is bred and owned by M. Eekhof, while the Hofrat son is bred by Rene Franssen and co-owned by the breeder and P. van Ooijen.
This week Invictus (by Bordeaux x Sandro Hit x Rubinstein I) and Inferno M (by Davino V.O.D. x Jazz x Darwin) dropped out.
Still participating in the autumn testing are Intro K, Indian Rock, Icoon B, Idool N, Invershin, Incognito, Ivano LH, Invito, Indigro, Il Divo and Impuls Groll.
A mid-testing evaluation will take place on 2 November, while the 50-day period concludes on 26 November
