For the first time in KWPN history two horses have been selected for the prestigious title KWPN Horse of the Year, a dressage champion and a showjumping title-winner. So, it’s time to celebrate the newly chosen winners Glamourdale and Dana Blue.

Incredible career highlights have already brought a lot of crowns for the 10-year-old stallion Glamourdale (Lord Leatherdale - Thuja stb pref x Negro), bred by Joop Roden-burg from Ouderkerk aan den IJssel, owned by Gert Jan van Olst. As a three year old he started by winning the stallion selection show, which marked only the start of his lofty career. Four year later, at the age of seven, this black pearl won the dressage WBCYH under the saddle of Briton, Charlotte Fry.
Gertjan van Olst is a very proud ower who was delighted with the volume of KWPN fans who voted for Glamourdale. “As a foal of 10 days his qualities struck me. And now there is no day he doesn’t meet expectataions. It’s incredible and amazing. Charlotte Fry and Glamourdale have already made their promising debut in Grand Prix. Although we are constantly having to postpone and change our plans due to Covid-19, our goal is to start at the Olympic Games. We are very happy with his qualities and this recognition.”..
