Due to all the cancellations as measures against the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus, the board of the KWPN has taken the decision that all the stallions selected during this year's show in ’s-Hertogenbosch will receive breeding licenses for this season valid until October 1.

The board explained that it is neither in the interests of the breeders, nor the owners, to restrict covering duties for the interesting, newly licensed stallions. There are three conditions: x-rays must be correct, respiratory system good, as well as semen quality. The first two conditions already had to be met ahead of the stallion show at the end of January.

After October 1, the 35-day stallion test will still take place under saddle for approval in 2021. (Claartje van Andel)
