New Harness Stallion Licensed in North America


We have exciting news for North American breeders as a new harness type stallion was licensed in the United States during the KWPN-NA Keuring tour in 2018.

Intign is a 2013 black harness stallion by Waterman preferent out of the keur mare Cuderose by Patijn preferent. Bred by Wim Cazemier, this stallion’s dam, a full sister of the KWPN stallion Fantijn, was the 2 year old champion in Holland. As a three year old, she was sixth nationally. Cazemier sold her in foal as a four year old and as a result, Intign was born in the United States.  The stallion is now owned by Amos R.S. Schwartz of Country View Stables.

Viggon van Beest, the lead harness juror at the KWPN-NA keuring tour said of the stallion “Intign is a good harness type horse. He is built upwards and has a very well developed shoulder and withers. The stallion shows a lot of front action in the foreleg and general movement and he develops a lot of momentum. A direct son of Waterman, his pedigree is interesting for the harness population”.

As a licensed stallion, Intign passed a pedigree evaluation by the stallion committee in Holland and was then presented for Licensing at the Goshen, Indiana keuring. There, Intign impressed the judges and passed his IBOP with Wim Cazemier. He then proceeded to pass his endoscopy, PROK exam and semen evaluation, officially making him a Licensed stallion. Foals by Intign will generally received Register A papers with a qualifying mare.

Congratulations to Intign’s connections on this fantastic addition to the KWPN-NA breeding program.
