We start on Sunday night (1/27/19) with a Welcome Reception at the Hotel Vught. On Monday buses will
take the group on a tour of KWPN HQ in Ermelo and to the Nijhof stables; lunch will be provided. We
should be back at the hotel around 6 PM and everyone will be on their own for dinner. On Tuesday the
bus leaves in the morning for Ad Valk Dressage with Emmelie Scholtens where we will see many of the
KWPN approved stallions and how they prepare them for the Stallion Show. In the afternoon, we go to
Bert Rutten’s location to view his facility and training theory. Tuesday evening we will have our Annual
Awards dinner at the hotel.

Wednesday is the start of the Stallion Show. Skybox seating is reserved for the group and beverages will
be served. Experts will provide commentary all during the Show and there will be question and answer
sessions with KWPN inspectors. Wednesday and Thursday are dedicated to jumper breeding, and Friday
and Saturday to dressage, as well as the Gelders and Harness Horses. The 3rd round and Jumper
champion will be completed on Thursday afternoon. Thursday evening young jumper stallions will
participate in four different Finals competitions with the Jumper Select Auction held that evening. On
Friday the 2nd round of Dressage, Gelders, and Harness Horses will be held. The Friday evening
program is packed with many exciting events, including spectacular exhibitions in addition to regular
competitions. On Saturday, after completion of the 2nd rounds, Dressage, Harness and Gelders stallions
selected for the Third Round will strut their stuff and compete for a chance to go to the Performance Test.
The best of these will compete for the championship in their breeding direction. After the Champions are
named the Dressage Select Auction will be held, many times the list includes stallions from the
Championship round. Saturday evening usually has a super gala event with freestyles and some of the
International super stars of Dressage demonstrating their skill.

An added feature of attending the Stallion Show is the shopping! There are many many wonderful tack,
clothing, equipment, and breeders sales booths set up in a large shopping area on site. Many bargains can
be found!

If you have always wanted to go to the Stallion Show but thought it was too expensive, do not speak
Dutch, didn’t have anyone to go with, then this is the solution. Want someone to share a room with? We
will put you in touch with likeminded members.

Join us at the 2019 Annual Meeting in Holland! Have a good time, catch up
with old friends, make new friends, see lots of fabulous horses!

many of your questions.
