Observing certain sellers who are advertising KWPN-(Harness Book) registered horses as being 3 ring prospects. 3 ring being hunters, jumpers and equitation. Certainty, some make reliable jumpers to a certain level but these horses are purposely bred to have exact opposite type of movement wanted for hunters.
No mention of these particular sale horses being Harness horses registry book in the advertising. If someone responds with a question about the horse being a harness horse, the seller simply states no; the horse is KWPN. They advertise on social media and the internet on various horse sale sites.
I guess it is buyer beware? Beware not all sellers are honest? Educate yourself. I feel bad for people especially those new to h, j, e being scammed. I have noticed a few of these horses being resold at a loss after the buyer finds out they were mislead.
Some people have caught on…
KWPN has three distinct registry books. One for dressage and jumper bred, another for harness bred and a third for gelders breeding. The riding horses in the dressage/jumpers being the bloodlines suitable towards h, j, e.
