At the 2022 German Sport Horse (DSP) Saddle Licensing in Marbach, four stallions were licensed and the KWPN bred Omega became the price highlight of the subsequent auction.
A small collection of eight dressage and show jumping bred stallions was presented under saddle for licensing and four received a positive verdict.
Two Premium Stallions
Two dressage bred stallions received the premium label: Blasius (by Benicio x Sarkozy), bred and owned by Franz Galneder, and the KWPN bred and registered Omega (by Springbank II x Krack C), bred by Adri van Erp.
The other two licensed stallions were show jumpers
