Selling your horse
Many breeders have been helped to sell their foals, young stallions and pregnant mares and more than half of the foals / horses sold have a future abroad. The aim of the KWPN is to help KWPN members sell their horses. The success of these auctions? Transparency, the KWPN inspector who has assessed all auction foals or horses and the veterinary check. In addition, the KWPN inspector is happy to speak to potential customers if they have specific questions about the collection. This service is regularly used. Read here more about the KWPN-auctions.
