Good Morning from Lumberton, NC!
Our second visit to this well equipped site hosted by Melanie Harper of MP Sporthorses. Thank you to our host for organizing this keuring. Congratulations to all of our participants for a successful day!

Please remember, that the jury’s remarks are for a snapshot in the lifetime of a horse.
First & Second Premium awards are given to horses that exceed and/ or meet the KWPNs high breed standards, and we are grateful to the owners and breeders for showing them to us. Not all first premium or ster horses are mentioned in ‘The Report from the Road ‘, only those horses that really stand out to the jury.
