  • OCD Testing
  • Starting in 2018, Register A mares/geldings or foreign registered mares whose sire has not met the KWPN radiographic standards must possess this DNA predicate and pass a radiographic examination for navicular syndrome and degenerative joint disease in order to be upgraded to Keur or Elite.

Starting in 2019, only the D-OC test will be accepted as a method of upgrading to Elite.

The PROK exam will still be available to all horses, but it will be for the predicate only. It will NOT be accepted for stallion approval, Register A requirements or upgrading to Elite status except in the case of Harness horses.

        All KWPN Approved stallions (2017 and after) must complete the D-OC test as a part of their veterinary requirements as well as pass a radiographic examination for navicular syndrome and degenerative joint disease. After this year, the traditional radiographic (PROK) examination for OC will be discontinued as a method of stallion approval. All Riding type (jumpers, dressage, hunter) horses are eligible to submit for this predicate.

Please read more about this predicate here: OC Information via KWPN.

Harness and Gelders type horses will continue to use the PROK exam, not the OCD test.

Navicular and Degenerative Joint Disease radiographs

These radiographs are required of any stallion going for KWPN approval or any Register A or foreign registered mare being presented for Elite. This is in conjuction with the OCD test listed above.
