17 HORSES WERE CONSIDERED “EXCELLENT” AT THE 11TH FINAL FOR THE YOUNG HORSE SELECTION TESTS FOR DRESSAGE
Almost 96% of the participating horses were PREs
>From the 25th to the 28th of September, the city of Toledo hosted the Young Horse Selection Test Final for the discipline of Dressage, coordinated by ANCCE. Likewise, the Spanish National Young Horse Championship Final was also held.
In the Dressage category for 4-year-olds, four PRE horses were rated Excellent. Jara FS had a total average of 73.900%; taking first place, her owner and breeder is Yeguada Arroyomonte. Of the horses participating in the 5-year-old category, eight were considered Excellent; the PRE with the highest score in this category was Mayodormo Caldero II. Owned by Ganadería El Caldero, his total average was 74.800%, thus placing him in second place. In the category for 6-year-olds, five PRE horses earned the classification of Excellent for Dressage. Taranto AV, owned by Agrícola Valvi, placed first with a final average of 75.200%.
Likewise, six horses were considered Very Good for Dressage in the 4-year-old category. In the category for 5-year-old, there were six horses, while there were three in the 6-year-old category.
With regards to the consideration of Good, three horses in the 4-year-old category earned this level. There was one horse in the 5-year-old category and two among the 6-year-olds who also earned this classification.
This Final concludes the 2014 Dressage Performance Tests. A Conformation Performance Test was also carried out during the competition, using the Lineal Conformation Score. This system is used to genetically assess both the aptitude for Dressage and for Conformation. Following this assessment, those horses achieving the category of Recommended Young Breeding Stock will be published in the corresponding Breeder Catalog and in the PRE Stud Book, for dissemination within the scope of the PRE Breeding Program. Lastly, the high quality of the horses presented at both the PSCJ Final and the Spanish National Young Horse Championships must be highlighted. Once again, the Purebred Spanish Horse has held a privileged place in the ranking of breeds participating in the event.
