The Young Horse Selection Test (known by its Spanish acronym PSCJ) is a series of tests for the breeding programs of any purebred equine competing in the field of Dressage. Spain’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and the Environment (MAGRAMA) backs the equine industry; thanks to this support and since 2003, the National Plan for the Organization and Promotion of the Equine Sector has become a basic tool for the achievement of integrated policies in Spain.
At these selection tests coordinated by ANCCE, conformational performance is verified using Lineal Conformational Assessment. This allows horses to be assessed genetically for both Dressage and Conformation. At the conclusion of these tests, the names of horses attaining any one of the categories of Young Recommended Breeding Stock are published in the corresponding Breeding Stock Catalogs and in the PRE Stud Book for dissemination within the scope of the PRE Breeding Program.
