As a 3-year old, Etoulon was Reserve Champion of the KWPN stallion inspection and of the stallion test. His total score of 88.5 points included a 9 for his reflexes, technique, scope and potential as a jumping horse.
His amazing jumping technique and reflexes has assigned a designation for Etoulon as one of the Netherlands’ most impressive and talented stallions.
