Progress in breeding can only be achieved through targeted selection..
The following selection criteria exist:
- The ancestry
- The evaluation of the characteristics of the external appearance (type, topline, forehand, hindquarters)
- The sequence of movements (step, trot, gallop)
- Jumping (free jumping or jumping under the rider, assessment of manner and ability)
- Inner qualities (performance, character, temperament and health)
- Results of performance tests and breeding value estimates
