At the half-way examination of the 2017 KWPN Spring Stallion Performance Testing in Ermelo, The Netherlands, the KWPN licensing committee sent home three further stallions: Joop TC, Jewel and Jupiter.
The third placed colt at the licensing, Jewel (by Ferdinand x Santano), as well as Joop TC (by Ravel x Krack C) and Jupiter (by Bon Bravour x Flemmingh) failed to impress the committee at this point and time and requested the owners to pick up their stallion. All three of them will get to try again at the 2017 KWPN testing in the autumn.
The two entered Gelderlander stallions Jupiler (by Charmeur x Jetset D) and Izaak (by Wynton x Cabochon) passed the half way examination.
On 29 March 2017, the 4-year old Indiana Jones Plantinum (by Cupido x Special D) was rejected from the testing because of veterinary reasons. Two weeks into the testing on 24 March, two stallions had already dropped out and were referred to the autumn testing. They were Jackson STH (by Johnson x Fidertanz) and Jaqiedo (by Aqiedo x Jazz).
Seven colts from an initial 13 are still continuing their 70-day testing. They are:
- Destino (by Danciano x Diamond Hit)
- Just Wimphof (by De Niro x Riccione)
- Jesperado KM (by Desperado x Wynton)
- Jansen (by Desperado x Fidertanz)
- Jerveaux de Baian (by Ferdeaux x Jazz)
- Jayden HB (by United x Uphill)
- Jonkheer ter Wincke (by Uthopia x UB40)
