The four-year-old Faust B. Ster (Maurits 437 x Haitse 425) earned the highest points in the harness & showdriving examination. This stallion bred by H. van Dijck from Doornspijk will be called Faust 523 since the Central Examination.

He is ridden by Harmina Holwerda in the Small Tour, ZZ driving and showdrives in the Limietklasse. Due to his achievements in sport he was able to enter the Short Test.

A year-long selection proces

The whole selection proces to a new KFPS studbook stallion takes almost a year. The First Viewing with open registration started in November 2020. Of the 300 stallions shown at the First Viewing, a selection was made and were entered in the Second Viewing during the Stallion Inspection in January 2021. Three saddle presentations last summer provided another selection which resulted in 19 stallions starting the Central Examination in September. In the end five stallions remained with the sixth entering through the Short Test. With the finalizing of this years Central Examination we are already looking forward to the First Viewing again. These 5 days will be held in Harich, starting November 29th through December 3rd 2021, with more than 300 stallions entered..
