Jury: Viggon Van Beest & Johannes Holtjes

The 2018 KWPN-NA Keuring Tour kicked off on Friday and Saturday with the first KWPN-NA harness horse keuring at Rocky Ridge Stables in Narvon, Pa. It was a very successful keuring because of the perfect conditions at the location, the great hospitality and the attractive quality of the horses.

 

FOALS

Thirteen foals (six fillies and seven colts) competed for the Foal Championship, with four of them selected for the finals. The overall quality was very good. Filly Nelline A.K.S. (Graaf Kelly x Makari Jetsetter) owned by Beacon Hollow Stables became champion. She has a very nice refined harness type, with long lean legs and a strong top line and a nice neck and croup. In trot she presented herself very well with a lot of front and also with good balance, suspension, posture and an excellent front leg action. Second place went to filly Novel (Hermanus x Jonker) owned by J. Zook. She is a well-developed yet refined filly with long lean legs, a nice neck and a lot of expression. In trot she shows well with a lot of flexion in the joints and with good suspension and balance. The colt Navigator (Governor x Aron) owned by Rocky Ridge Stables was third with good development, a nice harness type and strong connections. In trot he shows a lot expression with a very nice front and front leg action. Another colt Nockout PS (Waldemar x Fabricius) owned by Pequea Stables was fourth. This stud colt has an average development with a very nice neck and his refinement was outstanding. In trot he showed a nice front.

TWO-YEAR-OLD MARES

Three two-year-old mares were presented, all of which received a first premium. Champion and invited for the overall championship was Lamone (Globetrotter x Larix) owned by A. Fisher. She is very refined and in trot and showed a lot of front and self-carriage.

THREE-YEAR-OLD studbook inspection for mares

Two mares were presented in this class and both mares became Ster. Kiralonda (Globetrotter x Talos) owned by Treasure Hill Stables was invited for the overall championship. This mare has strong conformation, a lot of front and a very nice neck with a vertical direction. She fits the harness horse type very well and in trot she has excellent knee action, suspension, balance, posture and a lot action in her front legs. She was also very powerful in her hindquarters.

FOUR-YEAR-OLD studbook inspection for mares

Three mares were presented and became Ster. Jovialidee GFF (Waldemar x Jonker) owned by William Duffy III/ Grand Finale Farm was selected for the overall championship. Jovalidee GFF is a very impressive rectangular mare with expression and a good neck and shoulder.

Studbook mares for ster inspection

Both participants in this division earned a first premium and became Ster. Jasmine (Whiskei x Canadian Empress) owned by Round Top Stables was invited for the overall championship. Jasmine is very refined, has a nice harness type and has a lot of youth.

Geldings

Besides the mares, a gelding was also linear scored in the morning, which became Ster and was also invited for the overall championship. This gelding Keltro (Globetrotter x Roy M) owned by Rocky Ridge Stable has a good harness type and a very good position of his neck, and trots with nice front leg action.

Ster and keur mares in hand

Three of these with quality were presented, with Jeldine (Cizandro x Manno) owned by Rocky Ridge stables invited for the overall championship. Jeldine is a very nice refined mare with good connections and good front leg action.

IBOP

We were very pleased that three mares passed the Alternative IBOP which has to be driven twice. The overall highest scoring mare was Jasmine (Whiskei x Canadian Empress), passing the IBOP with 77 points in the first and 75 points in the second test. Also Karydientje (Globetrotter x Saffraan) and Jemarina (Ditisem x Vaandrager) passed the test. Since Jemarina and Jasmine also became Ster they automatically became Keur. Karydientje was not presented for linear scoring, therefore she will remain as foal book but has the IBOP predicate.

Natural Way Fine Harness Cup

For mares and for stallions harness classes were driven, with all participants very enthusiastic and eager to win. Jovialidee GFF won the mares class and the KWPN-approved Globetrotter triumphed in the stallion class.

Overall Champion

Ultimately it was the three-year-old filly Kiralonda (Globetrotter x Talos) who was crowned as overall champion. Even at the end of the day during the overall championship she presented herself in an outstanding fashion with a lot of power – she is a real champion!

The first stop of the 2018 KWPN-NA Keuring Tour for riding horses was held at the University of Massachusetts.  After this smaller-size keuring, a workshop on “linear scoring” was given for the interested audience.

The highest score of the keuring was awarded to the jumper filly Nonette MG. This modern, long-lined filly sired by Zapatero has an athletic body with well-developed withers and shoulder. She is light-footed, has suppleness in her movement, and especially her canter has good balance.

The filly Nessarette MG (Glamourdale) is a well-muscled dressage type, with a long vertical neck and uphill-built body. She is also uphill in her movement with good power and sufficient use of her body.

The three-year-old mare Kiarites SSF (Fairytale) earned her ster predicate. This elegant, refined mare has a supple, light-footed trot with good suspension.

Jury: Bart Henstra & Arie Hamoen

The second riding-type keuring took place at the convenient and well-equipped facility of Chris and Katie Moriarty from On Course Riding Academy.

The high score jumping award was given to the sport jumper mare called Dido (Mr. Blue x Carthago). This well-proportioned mare has a lot of quality and is a great jumper type, scoring an 85 for her conformation. She is long-lined with an expressive forehand, a good topline and a long croup. She is very correct in the stance of her legs. This 10-year-old mare has performed already at the 1.35m level, and therefore was awarded keur. Besides all of this, her pedigree is also quite interesting, both sire-wise and with a famous damline ‘van het Roosakker’, which has already provided top Grand Prix jumper horses.

Two other mares were also awarded keur. The 15-year-old Wianta W, who performed at the 1.40m level, is still very fit and long-lined. Her well-muscled neck is long and her withers are well developed.

Also, Fleur de Lis received keur. She could be more developed but every time under saddle she shows great reflexes and attitude. When the jumps get higher, Fleur du Lis improves in her technique and use of her body. This gave her the highest GES Cup score of the day with 80 points. The four-year-old gelding Just Sailing received a score of 76.5 in his GES Cup free jumping and he also passed his IBOP in the hunter direction.

Two dressage foals were presented and both were presented with a high first premium. First place was for the elegant Vitalis daughter Namaste WRF. This very correctly-built filly has a long, well-muscled neck and a good topline. She has correct stance of the legs. In trot she is light-footed with good suspension and articulation of her joints. In canter she shows good technique. Second place was the well-developed colt Newport Jazz WRF by Everdale. This well-muscled colt has a vertically-placed neck and long croup. His trot has a lot of articulation, but could step under more. His canter is supple, powerful and well balanced.

First premiums were awarded to:

Coatesville, PA
Host: Mary Alice Malone
Iron Spring Farm www.ironspringfarm.com
Jury: Bart Henstra & Arie Hamoen

Today’s keuring at the great facility of Iron Spring Farm had a diversity of horses presented.

High score keuring was awarded to a three-year-old dressage gelding called Kyro (sired by new World Champion Glamourdale). In his IBOP and DG Bar Cup performances, Kyro showed an active walk, has a good posture in his uphill trot, and especially his canter was well-balanced and powerful. He scored a 78.5 in his IBOP, and combined with his correct and long-lined dressage type he was awarded the ster predicate. He was also highest-placed in the three-year-old DG Bar Cup with 78 points.

Also the three-year-old long-legged gelding King Arthur (Sir Donnerhall) earned his ster predicate. This modern long-lined gelding has a good body and good suspension in his trot and canter. He is light-footed and has sufficient power.

The only three-year-old jumper mare Kanabisa SCF (Canabis) also received her ster. This elegant and correctly-built mare could be more developed, but jumped with quick reflexes and good technique in her legs and sufficient scope. She seems to be careful and has a good attitude for jumping.

Also the only harness mare, called Katruus (Colonist), was awarded ster. This elegant mare has a lot of expression and a good topline. This active mare has a good use of her hind leg with sufficient foreleg action.

The dressage foal class resulted in two foals being selected for the championship ring. Champion became the well-developed and long-legged son of Sir Sinclair called Nureyev ISF. This colt is elegant and has a modern dressage type. His gaits are light-footed and he shows a good use of his long, well-muscled neck. Runner up was the filly Notorious FCF (Olivi). This long-lined foal has a well-shaped neck and becomes even more beautiful in movement, showing athletic gaits with good suspension and articulation.

Jury: Bart Henstra & Arie Hamoen

The keuring in Virginia was held at the pleasant facility of Six Pound Farm. This smaller keuring was smoothly run by Tracy Geller.

The high score of the day was earned by a dressage filly, called Nokia KF (Grand Galaxy Win). This well-developed filly has a modern dressage type, is elegant, with uphill build and a lot of expression. Her athletic body is well used in movement. She is supple, light-footed, has good suspension and articulation, and has uphill tendency in all three gaits, walk, trot and canter. Nokia KF earned the leading score of the country (to date) with 83 in total. Breeder Lisa Dickman also owned the second- and third-placed foal, as well as the best adult dressage horse, the three-year-old mare Karisma S.E. (Negro). This correctly-built mare is well muscled and has power in her movement. Especially her walk has good length of stride and body use, and her trot and canter show good technique with sufficient use of the body and posture. Karisma S.E. earned her ster predicate today.

High-scoring young jumper was the two-year-old mare Limelight SPF (Arezzo). Limelight has a modern jumper type with good topline and correct legs. She shows a powerful canter with good balance.

The 12-year-old mare Bentinov (Ustinov) earned her elite predicate today. This mare, who competed at the 1.40m level, has a correct jumper type, but could be more rectangular in her body. Bentinov has correct and lean legs and was awarded with the high score ribbon for adult jumper.

The expressive hunter colt Nominee SPF (Vindication) shows sufficient development and has a well-muscled body. He is light-footed and has good technique in his gaits with sufficient suppleness.

2018 KWPN-NA Keuring Tour – “Report from the Road

August 30, 2018

Reddick, FL
Host: Sandi Lieb
Pennock Point Sport Horses

Jury: Bart Henstra & ArieHamoen

The interesting keuring held at Pennock Point Sporthorses was smoothly run by host Sandi Lieb and despite a thunderstorm the schedule could be finished in time with help of all participants. The keuring showed several interesting horses, as well for sports as for breeding.

 

Dressage

High score of the keuring was earned by the 10-year-old Grand Prix dressage mare Dee Clair (Sir Sinclair). This long-lined elegant mare competes successfully at the Grand Prix level, and when she starts moving she shows a lot of energy, is rising in her withers and shows a lot of engagement behind. Already in hand we could see the power and the ability for collection. Dee Clair is light-footed and has a lot of articulation in her joints. Dee Clair was promoted to keur today.

The same owner also showed a six-year-old sport dressage mare called Haiku (also sired by Sir Sinclair). This mare also earned her keur predicate today with her supple and powerful trot with good suspension. Her canter is active with good balance.

 

The long-lined three-year-old mare Khaleesi von Camelot (Uno Don Diego) was awarded ster. She has a high and long wither and good shoulder. Her walk is long strided and in trot she has a good bending and an active hindleg. Also the three-year-old gelding Kouragous (Locksley I) earned his ster. This supple gelding has a light-footed trot with active use of his hindleg and shows good posture.

The four-year-old ster gelding Improv (UB40) was presented in the DG Bar Cup. This powerful gelding has a clear and active walk, an uphill and light-footed trot with power, and an active canter with good length of stride. Improv is uphill and carrying in trot and canter. Earning an 81 for his test, Improv was awarded first place in his class.

The dressage foal class was won by Noah (Franklin).  This well-developed and well-muscled colt is built uphill and has a good dressage type. He uses his neck well in movement and has good articulation in his joints. Second place was another colt called Normandy OF (Totilas). Especially in movement, Normandy OF shows a lot of posture and has a good length of stride in trot and canter. Especially his canter is well balanced and carrying.

Jumpers

The four-year-old Just a Star was presented in the stallion class for jumpers and was awarded ster. This large and very scopey stallion could be more modern in his jumper type, but is very well-schooled and has a long-strided canter, he seems to be careful (but could be quicker in his reflexes), but he shows a lot of scope and opens well in his haunches. Just a Star also showed under saddle his scope and his ability for jumping. Just a Star received a 9 for his scope and 8.5 for his rideability. With a total of 79.5 in the IBOP and 80.5 in the GES Cup he successfully completed the performance today. However for stallion approval his pedigree should be more convincing and he should be more modern in his type.

Juliette-Niki S (Carrera) earned her ster predicate with her scope and her opening of her haunches. This long-lined mare could be more powerful in her take off, but seems to be scopey with sufficient care. In the GES Cup Juliette-Niki received a total score of 75.5.

Top young jumper was the filly Natural Wonder (Indoctro). This very expressive filly is well-proportioned and has an athletic body, long withers and quality legs. Her movement is light-footed with good suspension and balance. She has a very active use of her powerful hindleg. With 80 for conformation and 80 for movement, she is the leading jumper foal in the country so far.

Second place was the well-developed, long-lined filly Nuvolari de Lottie (Verdi). Novolari de Lottie has a good jumper type and a long-strided canter with sufficient power. Also the well-muscled colt Nonchalant LPR (Zapatero) has a supple and well-balanced canter, a well-shaped, muscled neck and a correct body. Fourth place was earned by the powerful filly Nvitation Only (Goodtimes). This filly has a strong topline with a well-shaped croup, and her canter has an active and powerful use of her hindleg.

2018 KWPN-NA Keuring Tour – “Report from the Road”

August 31, 2018
Newnan, GA
Host: Julie Haralson & Jos & Laura Sevriens
Blalock Lakes www.blalocklakes.com
Jury: Bart Henstra & Arie Hamoen

Today’s keuring was held at the well-equipped facility of Blalock Lakes.

High score of the keuring with 80 for conformation and 80 for movement was awarded to a dressage gelding, the three-year-old Kadeaux (sired by Bordeaux), who is well developed and has a good dressage type. This well-proportioned gelding is supple in his movement: in trot he shows good use of his hindleg, but especially his big-strided canter was well balanced and powerful.

The three-year-old dressage mare Kameo HF(Netto) earned her ster and keur eligible predicate. This expressive mare has a good topline and correct and lean legs. In trot she has a good use of her hindleg and shows sufficient posture, and her canter is active, long-strided and carrying.

The six-year-old Hibiscus(Charmeur) was awarded keur, with a passing IBOP score of 78. Under saddle, this correctly-built mare showed a very good canter, active, engaged, good technique and body use and especially in the second part of the IBOP she showed her ability for collection in the canter. Her trot has good technique with sufficient uphill tendency, and her walk shows good length of stride.

The high score adult jumper was earned by the tall gelding called Kensington(Ultime Espoir). This elegant and refined gelding is light-footed in his canter, has a quick takeoff and good front leg technique, with sufficient use of his body. Kensington could be more consistent but seems to be willing and careful.

The four-year-old jumper mare Hannabel CP(Caranza TSH) earned her ster predicate with her powerful canter. In jumping she has a powerful and upward takeoff, but could lower herself more in the neck. She opens well behind and seems to be careful with sufficient scope.

The best young jumper was an Arezzo filly called Novara HMS. This long-lined, well-muscled filly has a long wither and a good topline, and her powerful canter has good articulation with sufficient body use.

2018 KWPN-NA Keuring Tour – “Report from the Road”

August 31-September 1, 2018

Goshen, IN
Host: David Beachy & Wim Cazemier
Elkhardt County Fairgrounds
Jury: Viggon Van Beest & Gerardus Hermanussen

On Friday and Saturday the second KWPN-NA harness horse keuring was held in Goshen, Indiana at the Elkhardt County Fairgrounds. This second keuring was also very successful with a very high quality of harness horses, with outstanding winners in all classes. Also the location, the hospitality and weather helped to make it a great event.

Foals

Eight fillies and eight colts competed for the championship and were judged in two groups being the Foalbook/Reg. A foals and the Reg. B foals. Fifteen foals were awarded with a first premium. In total five foals were selected for the finals, three in the Foalbook/Reg. A and two in the Reg. B group. Overall champion of the first group was awarded to Neva (Hermanus x Reflex M) owned by Martin Schmucker. This filly has a very nice front with a strong topline and connections. She’s nicely refined with a nice neck and a good leg quality. She showed in trot a lot of front with lots of balance and suspension, good flexion in her joints and good power generation from her hindlegs. Also her foreleg action was impressive. Foal champion of the second group became the stud colt Notorious (Jeebert x Atleet) owned by David and Lorene Beachy of the Farbig Farm. This stunning and well developed colt fits very well in the harness type, has an impressive upright front and very strong connections with lean leg quality. In trot he showed lots of expression and self-carriage and a lot of balance and suspension. This stud colt showed ability to accelerate and an outstanding foreleg action.

Two-Year-Olds

Only Larado (Vaandrager x Patijn) owned by John Graber was presented and rewarded with a first premium and championship. This stallion is very well developed and fits the harness type well. He has a nice front with good developed withers and shoulder. In trot he showed very well with an outstanding foreleg action and suspension. Due to his very powerful hindquarter he also showed lots of self-carriage and balance.

Three-Year-Olds – Studbook Inspection for Mares

Two mares were presented in this class and both mares became ster. Winner in this class with an invitation for the overall championship became Kadillac Chic (Atleet x Vaandrager) owned by Bartholomiej Gasienica Byreyn. This mare is very refined and has a rectangular model with well-developed withers and shoulder. In trot she scored sufficient in all elements.

Mares 4-7-Year-Olds Studbook Inspection

Five mares were presented and all became ster. Jay Rose(Plain’s Liberator x Manno) owned by Wim Cazemier was placed first, invited for the overall championship and even became keur based on her two positive alternative IBOP’s. This very refined mare showed a lot of expression, has a very strong topline combined with good developed withers and shoulder and high quality lean legs. In trot she generates a lot of power and bending in her hindlegs. She shows with good technique and balance and high action in her forelegs.

Mares 4-7-Year-Olds Keur

Five mares were presented in this class, and the winner (and invited for the overall championship) was Worita(Manno x Renovo) owned by Paul C. Miller.This impressive and very well preserved 15-year-old mare fits the harness type very well. She is nicely refined with a long neck and good front. She shows a lot of posture and a good foreleg, a powerful hindleg, combined with a lot of suspension.

Overall Championship – Mares

Kadillac Chic, Jay Rose and Worita competed for the overall Championship, where Worita earned top honors due to her very good presentation and preserved quality with her age of 15 years and her strong trot.

Worita

Kadillac Chic

Stallions for Licensing

Two stallions were linear scored and both were invited for the first alternative IBOP on Friday. One stallion was invited for the regular IBOP on Saturday. This Intign(Waterman x Patijn) owned by Amos R.S. Schwartz fits very well in the harness type, is built uphill and has well developed withers and shoulder. This stallion shows a lot of front and action in his foreleg and develops good suspension. As Intign is a direct son of Waterman his pedigree is interesting for the population, combined with his solid performance he can continue in the process to become a KWPN licensed stallion. At this stage he only needs to pass the semen evaluation to become licensed.

Intign

IBOP

We were very pleased that three mares out of four as well as one gelding passed for both the alternative IBOP’s. Two horses need to be mentioned here, because both were awarded with extraordinary high scores. Jay Rose(Plain’s Liberator x Manno) owned by Wim Cazemier passed the IBOP’s with 85.5 and 86 points. She trots with excellent bending in her joints, generates much power in her hindlegs, has outstanding action in her foreleg and shows with very good balance and suspension. The gelding Jonker’s Prince(Jonker x Halstead’s Viking) owned by George Ames scored even higher, an outstanding 86 and 89 points! He also trots with excellent bending in his joints, generates massive power in his hindlegs which resulted in a 9.5 score for this element. He shows with a lot of self-carriage and acceleration and delivers how we like to see a harness horse trot. Iverona(Eebert x Waterman) owned by Joe D. Mast became keur after her two positive IBOP results. Iota Reg. B (Silver Oaks Cartier x Lorton) owned by Martin M. Schmucker also passed for both IBOP’s and she will become keur once she passes endoscopic exam and x-rays (PROK).

Fine Harness Cup

For mares and for stallions harness classes were driven, where the mare Jolanda(Whiskei x Orlando) owned by Rocky Ridge Stables was awarded Champion. Reserve Champion became Worita(Manno x Renovo) owned by Paul C. Miller. Champion in the stallion division was the approved KWPN stallion Globetrotter(Cizandro x Harald) owned by Rocky Ridge Stables, and Reserve Champion became Hermanus(Patijn x Manno) owned by Jonas Lengacaer, Martin Schmucker and Steven Graber.

Jury: Bart Henstra & Harrie Derks

Blue Gate Farm facilitated the keuring in Wisconsin, and these well-equipped accommodations made this smaller keuring run smoothly.

High scores were achieved by the foals, and especially the dressage foals impressed both the judges and the audience. High score of the keuring was awarded to the Jazz filly called Nirvana SS.  This young and uphill-built filly is expressive and refined. Her trot is special, light-footed, adjustable, athletic with a lot of carrying power and uphill tendency. Her walk and canter show good length of stride and articulation. With a total score of 80 this foal is ranked third in the country so far.

Second place was for the athletic son of Sir Sinclair named Nikolas SS. This long-lined colt has a long, well-shaped neck and shows a lot of technique in his supple movement. He has very good use of his body in walk, trot and canter. Third place was earned by the well-muscled filly Nadieni, sired by Dream Boy. This correctly-built filly has a good topline, an active and powerful hindleg in trot and canter, and shows good articulation and uphill tendency.

His canter is long-strided with good balance and carrying ability, and his trot shows good technique with sufficient suppleness.

The long-lined two-year-old UB-40 gelding Louisville SS has a well-shaped vertical neck and a good dressage type with lean legs. His movement is light-footed, has good reach in his front leg and shows sufficient power.

 September 3, 2018

Sherwood, OR
Host: Dan & Gina Ruediger
Sonnenberg Farm www.sonnenberg.us
Jury: Bart Henstra & Harrie Derks

This keuring in Oregon was held at the great location of Sonnenberg farm. Our hosts Dan and Gina Ruediger had a lot of interested spectators coming to this keuring, who could all watch the quality presented in the dressage classes. Faith Fessenden also informed all people at the keuring with additional information about the linear scoring and pedigrees.

The high score ribbon was awarded to the three-year-old dressage mare called Kiriska (sired by Jazz). This modern and elegant dressage mare has an expressive long, well-shaped neck and athletic body. Kiriska shows a great body use in movement: her walk is active with good reach and very supple. Same for her trot, as she impressed us with her body use and her suppleness, her very good leg technique and articulation. Her trot is always uphill and carrying with a very good use of her neck. Her canter is powerful and active with good length of stride. A total score of 80 for her conformation and 90 for her movement tells it all.

The four-year-old Juliette D’Rosa (Ampere) is a powerful and well-muscled mare. She also has a good dressage type with well-developed withers, long sloping shoulder and a good topline. In movement she is powerful with good suspension, has a lot of articulation and technique, and has an expressive use of her frontleg. Her canter is carrying and powerful with good length of stride.  With 80 for conformation and 85 for movement Juliette D’Rosa also got a very good score and received her keur eligible predicate.

Two older dressage mares, who already did their IBOP, were presented for keur and both were upgraded. The great five-year-old Izabella (Sezuan) already scored a 84.5 in her IBOP with a 9.5 for her fantastic canter. This long-lined, well-developed mare was easily promoted to keur and since she also got her D-OC she became elite. Also Gold Pleasure (Wynton) was awarded elite today. This elegant mare has a good rectangular type and a well-shaped long neck. She also passed her IBOP and in-hand she showed an expressive use of her frontleg.

In the DG Bar Cup for six-year-old horses the keur mare Hannah Anda (UB40) was presented. This well-trained mare is confirmed in her riding. She has a clear active walk, she uses her hindleg well in trot and especially her canter was well-balanced and shows good rhythm. In the collection she is active and engaged in her hindleg. With an overall score of 81 this mare was ranked first nationally (to date) in the DG Bar Cup.

The class of dressage foals also showed quality. The winner was the filly Nadia D’Rosa (Franklin). This filly shows sufficient development and a good dressage type, but in movement she becomes quite special. Her canter is great, with lots of power, balance, suppleness and technique. Her trot has a lot of suspension and a very expressive use of her frontleg. With an 85 score for her movement this filly was awarded with the high score for young dressage horse and is now third in the country so far. Runner up was the colt Nautilos (Governor). This colt has a very good dressage type, is long-lined, with an uphill body direction and a well-shaped long neck. His light-footed movement shows an active use of his hindleg and sufficient reach in his front leg with good posture. In third place was the colt Nebraska (Ibiza).  This well-built colt is somewhat sickle-hocked in his hindleg, but his trot has good posture and reach and especially his canter is well-balanced, powerful and adjustable. The well-developed filly Nadanta (Fidertanz) is well-muscled and correctly built. Her trot is expressive with good technique, and the canter has good length of stride with sufficient power.

Sedalia, CO
Host: Lauren Woodruff
The Hillside Center www.thehillsidecenter.com
Jury: Bart Henstra & Harrie Derks

Is has been more than 20 years since a KWPN keuring was held in Colorado, but host Lauren May Woodruff made it possible to organize a keuring at the scenic foot of the Rocky Mountains.

Highest score of the keuring was awarded to a young dressage foal called Nobello CBF (sired by Indigro).

Has trot shows good length of stride with sufficient power, and his canter is well balanced, powerful and shows uphill tendency.

High adult dressage horse score was awarded to the ster gelding Jumani, sired by Johnson. Jumani was presented in the Dressage IBOP were he showed his powerful, long-strided and well-balanced canter.  His walk is correct with sufficient length but could be more supple; his trot has sufficient length of stride and good articulation but can become more engaged. With an 8.5 for his canter, Jumani successfully passed his IBOP with a total of 75. He received the same score in the DG Bar Cup for four-year-olds.

In the Jumper IBOP division, the dressage-bred six-year-old gelding Hermus P (Oscar) also passed his IBOP with a total of 78. This scopey gelding has a well-balanced canter, a quick but somewhat forward take off, and seems to be careful. He improved in his technique and body use when the jumps were raised and at the higher oxers he showed good bascule and opens well behind. Hermus P also was awarded ster in the jumper direction and received 78 points in the GES cup.

Hanford, CA
Host: Willy Arts
DG Bar Ranch www.dgbarranch.com
Jury: Bart Henstra & Harrie Derks

At the first day of the well-organized DG Bar Keuring mainly riding classes and studbook entries were done. The dressage riding classes included both IBOP and DG Bar Cup entries.

High score IBOP and winner of the three-year-old DG Bar Cup was the stallion Koning DG (Bordeaux). This very rideable and well-trained stallion has a great use of his body. Especially his walk and canter were outstanding. His walk is really supple through the body, long-strided and active. His trot shows good posture and very good use of his neck with good articulation. His canter was very balanced, supple and uphill with a lot of athleticism. With an overall score of 85.5 in his IBOP and DG Bar, Koning received a top score with 9’s for walk and canter.

Second place in the DG Bar Cup for three-year-olds was awarded to Kiamenta DG (Bordeaux). This supple light-footed mare is balanced and easy to ride. Her trot has good technique and body use. Also her canter is balanced with good body use.  Third place was for the gelding Kabuki (Charmeur). This elegant gelding shows good power in his canter with active use of his hind leg. Also his trot shows good leg technique with sufficient uphill tendency.

Winner of the four-year-old DG Bar Cup was Joule (Ampere) .This powerful gelding shows good posture and carrying ability in both trot and canter. He has good articulation and suspension and shows always uphill tendency and good balance. Second place was the new keur mare Jamebria (Charmeur).

In the fourth spot was the versatile gelders mare Jande (Parcival). Janda has powerful movement: in her Gelders IBOP she received a 9 for her powerful active canter and an 8.5 for her talent as a dressage horse.

2018 KWPN-NA Keuring Tour – “Report from the Road”

 September 7, 2018

Parkland County, AB
Host: Ellicia Edgar
Valleyfield Farm www.valleyfieldfarm.com
Jury: Bart Henstra & Harrie Derks

Today’s keuring in Alberta was held for the first time at Valleyfield Farm. This well-equipped farm has good footing and was well organized.

nteresting was that several international competition jumper mares were presented for studbook entry. High score keuring was awarded to a 17-year-old Grand Prix 1.60m jumper mare Beausoleil (Rubens du Ri D’asse). Beausoleil is still very fit and has a good jumper type, is well proportioned with a well-muscled topline, an athletic body and a long, well-shaped croup and correct legs. Her canter is very balanced with good length of stride. With an 85 for conformation this mare earned her ster and keur eligible predicate easily. For keur she needs to fulfil additional requirements.

The 15-year-old Whisper (Indoctro) competed at the 1.40m level and showed as a six-year-old at the World Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken. This long-lined refined mare also has a good jumper type with a somewhat flat croup. Her canter is still supple with an active use of her hind leg. Whisper earned her keur predicate today.

Another 15 year old mare called Bini Balou  (Balou du Rouet) was awarded keur eligible. Bini Balou showjumped at 1.35m level. This longlined well developed mare is very correct and has a well developed withers and good topline. Her canter is balanced with sufficient body use. If Bini Balou fulfils her requirements she will become keur.

The seven-year-old mare Ultra Daimonde VF (Diarado) earned her keur eligible predicate with her quick reflexes (scoring 85) and her carefulness. This eager mare likes to jump and shows a powerful canter and takeoff. She has a quick use of her front leg and especially on the higher oxers she used her body well and showed good scope.

The 5-year-old stallion Messenger passed his jumper IBOP and was awarded ster. This well-muscled stallion has a long-strided canter with good rhythm and sufficient body use. In jumping he could be quicker in the reflexes but has good scope and is brave. Messenger improves in his body use on the higher oxers and has good leg technique on the jumps. He is sometimes somewhat strong in the connection to the bridle.

In total of 13 jumper foals were presented, with the highest score awarded to the athletic son of Messenger called Navigator VF. This long-lined jumper colt has a good topline and a long croup. His trot is supple and light-footed but especially his canter is athletic, adjustable and shows good length of stride. It is very easy for Navigator VF to keep his balance and change direction.  The long-lined and well-muscled colt Nitro MS (Nassau) earned second place. Nitro MS has good length in his body and high, long withers with a long sloping shoulder. He has a supple trot with good suspension and a well-balanced canter with good length of stride.

The high score dressage ribbon was awarded to Nakita (Franklin). This well-muscled filly has good technique in her gaits.

Cardigan, PEI
Host: Martha & Ken Mellish
New Perth Farms www.newperthfarms.ca
Jury: Bart Henstra & Harrie Derks

The final keuring of the 2018 KWPN-NA tour was held at Prince Edward Island. It has been six years since a keuring was held there.

The high score of the keuring was awarded to the three-year-old jumper mare Katrina Rose NPF (Klinton). This sufficiently-developed mare has a great attitude for jumping and is very eager. She is quick and powerful in her somewhat forward takeoff. She seems to be careful and has quick reflexes. She has a sufficient body use with a good opening of her haunches. With 80 for jumping and 80 in the GES Cup this mare was awarded ster and keur eligible.

The six-year-old dressage mare Hanosa NPF (Johnson) was presented in the dressage IBOP and the DG Bar Cup. Hanosa NPF has a good posture in trot and canter. Her light-footed trot shows good technique with sufficient reach. Especially her canter is powerful, well-balanced and has a lot of articulation and engagement (8.5 for her canter). Her walk is clear but should be longer strided and more supple. With a passing score of 75, Hanosa NPF was awarded ster. In the DG Bar Cup, Hanosa showed her powerful canter again, but she could be more confirmed in her connection and exercises (earning a 74.5).
