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.
