For sport horse breeders seeking to donate to a good cause and breed to a top stallion, the KWPN-NA stallion service auction is the perfect opportunity to do both. Now through February 17, online bidding is welcome for 17 stallions that feature some of the best jumping and dressage bloodlines. The auction benefits the KWPN-NA’s mission to offer educational programs and resources for breeders and aspiring breeders.
“The auction raises funds that go toward KWPN-NA awards programs,” says Willy Arts, the KWPN-NA Chairman. “It has been very successful over the years, and we have breeders that look forward to it each February.”
This year’s roster of stallions includes horses with bloodlines that are recognized worldwide for athletic ability, and the propensity to produce quality offspring. These bloodlines have produced hundreds of premium offspring that have competed through the highest levels of the sport.
One breeding per stallion has been donated by the stallion owner and agents to: Farrington keur; Jonker; Laroche; Lupicor; Navarone; Negro; Popyeye K; UB40; Banderas; Figaro B; Kinnaras; Novalis; Richard; Rubinus; Schroeder; Toronto and Valentino Z.
Arts continues, “These are some of the most popular stallions in North America. We are very fortunate to have stallion owners and agents donate breedings to their top stallions. This creates a win-win situation for everyone.”
The stallions in the service auction feature the superstar jumping bloodlines of Nimmerdor, Concorde pref, Lux Z, Jus de Pomme, Voltaire pref, Balou du Rouet, G. Ramiro Z pref, Le Mexico keur and Darco to name just a few. Of course, dressage aficionados will appreciate the bloodlines of Ferro pref, Jazz pref, Rubinstein and Sandro Hit.
Bidding starts at just $600 per breeding. All of the details, rules and additional information about the stallions are available at www.kwpn-na.org.
