First we want you to know that Manno became Ere class Champion again in august 2006. In 2006 Manno is not been beaten. He had to beat the best horses in Holland, those who are able to participate in the highest class. Only his son Sunlight was a serious danger for Manno in the final, but Manno (V.Fabricius pref.) showed himself outstanding and beautiful in his movement. For Manno, this is the first breeding stallion that had this championship for the 3rd time. Not one breeding stallion has ever done what Manno is able to.

The Dutch harness horse holds a unique position in the world as a show horse but in recent years has gained immense international popularity as a driving horse.
The success of Dutch breeding was more than evident at the World Four-in-Hand Driving Championship 2008 in Beesd, where almost one-half of the entries were KWPN-bred, and more than half of those (a total of more than 25%) were harness horses!
The Championship can easily be considered the major breakthrough event of the Dutch harness horse into the world of international driving.
The entries were impressive for both their quantity and quality, which immediately became clear the first day in the dressage phase. Led by American Chester Weber, the dressage winner, the first five finishers were drivers whose teams included harness horses. The cones phase was won by another major proponent of Dutch harness horses, Australian Boyd Exell.
In the final standings of the Championship, Chardon won the gold, Weber the silver, and Exell the bronze, in turn making the KWPN the most successful studbook of the Championship due in large part to its harness horses. Chardon used three KWPN riding horses in the Championship. Weber’s carriage was headed by the Dutch harness horses Rolex W (s.Larix), Para (s.Harmonie), Boy W (s.Manno), and Jamaica (s.Cambridge Cole.
Recently, Jamaica was honored as the 2008 USEF Horse of the Year. Exell’s team included Lordminster (s.Fabricius), Scampolo (s.Larix), and Selleen (s.Fabricius). Finishing in fourth, fifth, and sixth place respectively were Joszef Dobrovitz of Hungary, Chistoph Sandmann of Germany, and Daniel Würgler of Switzerland. All three drivers used several harness horses in the Championship.
