Hanoverian Training Identification Program
The American Hanoverian Society’s Training Identification/Auction Committee would like the members to understand how this new exciting program of identifying riders/trainers/facilities will work. A member will first apply to be inspected and listed in one or more of the current categories and checklists using the form posted above. The list of categories and checklists will be further developed over time. A current non-AHS member would be required to join as either an Associate or Active member and may do so by checking by the appropriate box on the Hanoverian Training Identification Application.
The AHS Central Office will compile and maintain the list of United States applicants, while Canadians will apply through the office of Inga Hamilton, President of the Hanoverian Breeders’ Club of Eastern Canada. The list of applicants will be given to Jorg-Wilhelm Wegener when he arrives in the United States this spring. He will make a plan to visit those riders/trainers/facilities that have made an application to be on the current list. We have implemented an incentive program (50 percent off before July 1, 2008) to try to get as many persons involved before Jorg-Wilhelm arrives; his itinerary, still to be determined, will include visits to as many individuals and sites as possible. Jorg-Wilhelm will inspect facilities and verify trainer’s and rider’s submitted records. Those that have qualifying standards will be posted on the AHS website and listed in the Society’s quarterly magazine, The American Hanoverian.
After July 1, 2008, the AHS will assume the responsibility of inspecting and verifying. After one year, the rider/trainer/facility will need to reapply and fill out a form that will disclose any material changes, such as a new Farm Manager, a new Training Leader, new footing in the indoor/outdoor or loss of buildings or turnout. The Committee hopes the posting of this list will provide a real benefit to the AHS and Canadian membership looking for new riders/trainers/facilities and provide an advertising benefit to the applicants.
