Sell a foal

Participating foals must be registered at KWPN. Foals can be signed in via the My KWPN Platform. Once you have signed in, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail with an official registration form. Foals registered for the sale will be seen before selection by KWPN-inspectors and filmed at the KWPN-center. 

Selection criteria:

  • Foals must be free from external observable abnormalities (e.g. abnormal hocks, dissimilar/abnormal feet or an overbite).

  • Foals must have correct legs.

  • Foals must have a correct walk, trot, and canter.

  • Foals must be properly groomed. However, facial whiskers and hair on the inside of the ears must not be trimmed.

The assessment of KWPN inspectors is binding. Foals will be filmed during the selection process. Each foal will be filmed with its dam, which will be presented by a KWPN-designated handler. After the selection process, foals may return to their home location.
