Five dressage bred stallions were approved for breeding for the Belgian Warmblood society (BWP) at the third phase of the 2018 BWP Stallion Licensing held at Stable Hulsterlo in Meerdonk on 15 - 17 March 2018.

The champion of the BWP licensing is always a show jumper as the breed society focuses almost exclusively on jumper breeding, despite some efforts from a few passionate dressage aficionados. This year Pegase van 't Ruytershof (by Comme Il Faut x Cartano x Diamant de semilly) was named licensing champion.

Initially six dressage bred colts were accepted for the third phase but two of the BWP bred 3-year olds did not make the final cut: Pharell van het Steinerhof (by Download x Rousseau) - and Pegasus van de Guldennagel (by Apache x Quicksilver) were not approved. 

Picasso van den Bruel was proclaimed champion of the dressage lot.

Two BWP bred colts that are accepted are:

  • Panthero van de Vogelzang (by Belantis x Quaterback) - owners: Meerdaalhof & Joris de Brabander
  • Picasso van den Bruel (by Zack x Florestan) - owners Blockx & Vansweevelt

Two Non-BWP registered colts were approved:

  • Mentor (by Millennium x Florestan) - owners: Roshoeve & Van den Oetelaar
  • F-Braveheart vanck VDB (by Bretton Woods x Weltmeyer) - owner: Lindsay Bruyninckx

Hippo Lux presented their old, internationally competed Holsteiner Grand Prix stallion H-Ekwador (by Heraldik xx x Corofino) for approval and he was accepted as well.
