  1. Stallion Test - History

    The Stallion Performance Test is an essential step in the approval process of a stallion. Developed more than half a century ago, this standard test had significant influence on the improvement of the quality of stallions in Europe, especially in Germany. This was the reason for the Registry to establish the 100-Day Test in North America in 1986. It has helped to select the best stallions for our breeding program and gave breeders a lot of information about the stallions.

    After more than 20 years the ISR-Oldenburg Registry North America has made another step forward in 2009 and has restructured the format of its Stallion Performance Testing. Although the 100-Day Test was the standard format in the past, the ISR-Oldenburg Registry has already offered the Short Test (30 days) as an alternative format since more than 10 years. It was developed for owners that wanted to train and show their stallions under their regular rider. What started in 1996 became a successful alternative.

    Since more and more stallions compete in their disciplines it became a hardship for many owners to take them out of their performance career for 100 days for the stallion performance test. Although the Short Test offered kind of an alternative, we felt that time had come to revise the testing completely – using all the experience from eleven tests in the US and the testing experiences from Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands.

  2. Advanced Stallion Test

    Consequently the Registry has developed a new stallion testing format which became effective in 2009. This new format is a modified version of the Stallion Performance Short Test but goes beyond since it requires that stallions are shown in one discipline (Dressage, Jumping or Hunter) at the competitive level of their age. This will give breeders more information about the performance ability of a stallion in its major discipline. While the 100-Day Test asked the same performance from all stallions, the new test will – in addition – ask for specific performance ability in one discipline.

    The new testing format does not include a Registry conducted training period for the stallions prior to the actual test. The training is completely in the hands of the individual owner and trainer.

    The new 3 Day Test requires the stallion to perform in in special discipline tests designed for Dressage, Jumper, Hunter, Eventer. Stallions that have received a Certified Breeding License are required to undergo this test within two years of the initial approval at the age of four, five or six years. Older stallions, inspected at an age of six years and above, can be tested as well and are required to perform in one discipline at a level appropiate to their age.
