The BP Stamboek has 4 different testings/keurings named stallion, gelding, mare and foal keurings (judging).

Stallion Keuring/Judging:

The Stallion testing/keuring has 3 rounds. 
1st Round-- street exterior/movement. 
2nd Round-- Free movement.

 A year after approval, the Stud must take an IBOP test for the information for the breeders.
We do not believe in yearly conformation or offspring tests to unapprove the Stud, as other studbooks apply;  as a stud that does not breed or perform well, will not be used by future breeders.   The Stud,  however, must pass a clinical veterinary exam and be free from hereditary deficiencies.
