Performance test for heavy horses
EVI field test for stallions, mares and geldings - breeding direction pulling/driving (weak wood/drawn sledge).

The field test for draft horses takes place on the parade ground of the North Rhine-Westphalian State Stud. Mares, geldings and stallions from the age of three years are eligible to participate and will compete in two sub-tests, separated by sex. In addition to driving (driving task and foreign driver), especially pulling (weak wood and pulling sledge) is tested. The evaluation commission grades the interior as well as the performance characteristics of the presented cold-blooded horses in all parts of the test.

If an overall score of 7.5 or higher is achieved, an award as "performance stallion" or "performance mare" will be given.

Stallion performance test for Haflingers
CVI 30-day station test for stallions - breeding direction riding/driving.
The station test for Haflingers will take place at the North-Rhine-Westphalian State Stud. Three-year-old and older Haflinger stallions are eligible to participate, with the target group being four-year-old stallions. In addition to the interior, the gaits and the rideability, the jumping ability (free jumping), the driving ability and the cross-country suitability of the Haflinger stallions are evaluated.
The station test consists of two parts - the preliminary test and the final test. During the preliminary test, the training manager, who is provided by the Warendorf State Stud, evaluates the stallions participating in the test on the basis of the impressions gained in daily training. The final test takes place over a total of three days, during which, in addition to two test judges, an external rider and an external driver each award marks.
