The KWPN offspring report for 1997 noted: “The offspring are well developed, well muscled nad of good riding type. The head is expressive. In some cases a little convex between the eyes. Neck and poll have good length. The poll is well muscled and well carried. The wither and shoulder are good. The back and loin have good shape and muscling. The croup has good shape with sufficient length and good muscling. The foreleg is well placed with a well developed knee. The cannon is a little fine at times. The hindleg varies in regard to built and stance: most often it is a little long with a small angle, but other times rather straight. The hock should be better developed and finished. The walk is correct, bit and supple. The use of the hindleg varies during the trot. In some cases it is a little slow in coming underneath and sometimes it should carry better. Some yearlings trot with good use of the hindleg and show good rise in the forehand. The use of the hindleg also varies a little in the canter.”
