    Default What does KWPN mean?

    Can we start a 'Things you'd like to know but are too embarrassed to ask section'?

    OK, look I know allot about horses but why on earth don't I know what KWPN means in terms of a horses description?

    I had to look it up.... but this is what I found

    A Dutch Warmblood registered with the Koninklijk Warmbloed Paardenstamboek Nederland (Royal Warmblood Studbook of the Netherlands (KWPN), which governs the breeding of competitive dressage and show jumping horses, as well as the show harness horse and Gelderlander, and a hunter studbook in North America. Developed through a breeding program that began in the 1960s, the Dutch are some of the most successful horses developed in postwar Europe.

    On a totally different subject, what does QR stand for? I've gathered that it refers to the original post but haven't a clue what it means

    i've always wondered what KWPN was... and always thought it was such an obvious thing, i was too embarrassed to ask...

    Blimey! I have also wondered what that meant but never wanted to ask!
