The annual KWPN Stallion Selection will take place in Den Bosch's Brabanthallen from February 4-7, 2009.
The Wednesday program includes the second and third round viewings of the jumper stallions during the day. In the evening, the focus is on the Dutch harness horse.
On Wednesday evening, February 4th, the KWPN will welcome you to the opening of the 2009 Stallion Selection with a special program called KWPN College. The program will take place in the main arena and offer ringside seating to facilitate an interactive environment. Its purpose is to give foreign guests insight into the KWPN selection method. All breeding directions will be represented, and the connection between breeding, bloodlines, selection, and top sporthorses will be discussed. On Thursday, the second and third round viewings of jumper stallions continue. The evening is dedicated to sport: the stallion competition final and various exhibitions.
Friday is devoted to the dressage stallions, with the second and third round viewings taking place during the day. In the evening, KWPN horses compete to win the stallion competitions. Also featured are several exhibitions, including those spotlighting the foundation sire Jazz, number one dressage stallion on the WBFSH-ranking.
On Saturday KWPN will present the very best: the dressage horse and jumper champion selections, the new breeding stallions of 2009, the new predicate stallions, and the 2008 Horse of the Year award ceremony. The Stallion Selection concludes with the elite auction, the KWPN Select Sale.
