PZHK acknowledged by KWPN

5 March 2013 · Category: Breeding, · Breed: ,,

For years, the KWPN has gran­ted ack­now­led­ged sta­tus to stud­bo­oks ran­ked in the top ten of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBFSH) over mul­ti­ple years. Offspring of stal­lions appro­ved by a KWPN‐acknowledged stud­bo­ok quali­fy for Register A and, upon meeting spe­ci­fic cri­te­ria, are accep­ted into the KWPN stud­bo­ok. The KWPN Breeding Council for riding hor­ses, which has discus­sed cri­te­ria for ack­now­led­ged sta­tus on seve­ral occa­sions, recen­tly recom­men­ded that the num­ber of KWPN‐acknowledged stud­bo­oks be expan­ded to inc­lu­de the top seven­te­en of the WBFSH. This chan­ge allows more hor­ses to quali­fy for Register A and rele­ga­tes fewer to Register B. Furthermore, the recom­men­da­tion bene­fits bre­eders, as the KWPN bre­eding pro­gram offers more oppor­tu­ni­ties for Register A hor­ses, pro­vi­ded they meet con­for­ma­tion, per­for­man­ce, and health cri­te­ria. The Breeding Council also recom­men­ded that a stud­bo­ok rank among the top seven­te­en of the WBFSH in dres­sa­ge or jum­ping at least twi­ce in order to quali­fy for KWPN‐acknowledged sta­tus.
