Dear Hanoverian and Rhineland breeders,
this thick newsletter is packed with activities that we were able to carry out in the last weeks despite Corona. At the same time, our attention is already focused on the big autumn events, especially on our stallion licensing, which will also take place under Corona conditions this year. More about this in this newsletter as well.
The topic of the foreword in DER HANNOVERANER 9/2020 was the activities of the Hannoveraner Verband abroad under Corona conditions.
Maren Schlender emphasizes how important it is that we have been able to build up a good network outside Germany over the last decades: "Our daughter societies in Australia, Great Britain, New Zealand and the USA work independently. In countries that we serve directly from Verden, such as Canada and Russia, the representatives of the Hanoverian Horse Breeders' Clubs there will carry out the majority of the registrations and studbook inspections this year. We are in the fortunate position to have people there who have the knowledge and know-how, but also the passion to carry out these activities, due to regular further training in Verden, but also due to the regular registration trips of the past years. In this situation, a big thank you goes to the representatives of all Hanoverian organizations abroad, who work hard to maintain a bit of normality".
Very well said. We wholeheartedly join in this thanks.

Hannoveraner Verband - Assembly of Delegates on August 24, 2020
Dr. Hinni Lührs-Behnke was elected new president of the Hannoveraner Verband. "The breeders are the heart of the association," said the 48-year-old. Ernestine Zwingmann from Lindwedel became chairwoman of the newly created supervisory board. It was a delegates' meeting that will go down in the history of the Hannoveraner Verband, because in many areas the course will be set anew after the structural reform decided in February. [More]
Online auction for foals from France and Great Britain
The countdown has started - in a few days the first online auction for dressage foals from France and Great Britain will start. Five talents from France and eleven from Great Britain were carefully selected and examined by veterinarians. Up-and-coming young sires and proven older stallions are responsible as sires: The collection with foals from France includes a fine selection of offspring by Escolar, For Gold, Soliman de Hus, Sir Sandro and Vitalis. The quality foals come from well-known and successful breeding sites. The online auction for the British foals will be conducted in close cooperation with the British Hanoverian Horse Society. The auction lot features foals by Franklin and Finest, the foals with the best rating in Great Britain in 2020. Offspring by stallions such as Danciero, F-D'Avie, Flammengold, Millennium and Wild Child complete this highly interesting collection. From September 4, photos and videos of the foals will be available on the Internet at www.verdener-auktion-online.com. The auction starts on September 9 and ends on September 12. Secure one of the youngsters from British or French breeders. We keep our fingers crossed for all breeders who participate in this pilot project!
Juliana Küspert new colleague in the department "Studbook Abroad”
At the beginning of August Juliana Küspert joined the studbook abroad department of the Verband. She is currently working on her Master's thesis on 'PSSM 1 in selected cold-blood breeds' at the University of Göttingen. For this reason, she will be working in the Verband's office for 25 hours per week until spring next year. After completing her Master's degree, she will start her full-time position.
Registration trip France (13 - 22 July)
France is worth a trip, also with regard to Hannoveraner and Rhinelander breeding. On the big round trip almost 100 foals were registered, 79 as Hannoveraner and 19 as Rhineland foals. 21 foals, a good fifth, were awarded the coveted gold medal. The highest-rated foal was an outstanding colt by Fürst Romancier out of a dam by Dancier, bred and owned by Haras de la Gesse, a great stud farm in Boulogne sur Gesse on the northern edge of the Pyrenees. Also highly rated was a powerfully moving and correct colt by Don Deluxe/Vivaldi out of the top mare line of Alferate bred by Elevage des Baïsses in the Nancy area. We have seen the highest rated filly in Provence. It was a daughter of Fürst Toto out of a De Niro dam who already produced Vice World Champion Sultan des Paluds; breeder and owner: Pablo Bouillot. A very high-quality, still young filly by Franklin/Sezuan - the dam is a full sister of the Bundeschampion So Unique - by Zuchthof Neumann-Ullrich in Normandy and a typey and powerfully moving filly by Donier/Baroncelli bred by Isabelle Furlanetto, Falleron, were rated similarly high. The other Hannoveraner gold foals were by the stallions Escamillo (2 foals, Elevage d'Arion, Falleron, and Martine Deguillaume, Peyrat le Chateau), Millennium (Comte de Saporta, Ivoy le Pre), For Gold, Q-Sieben (both Dr. The other Hanoverian gold foals were by the stallions Escamillo (2 foals, by Elevage d'Arion, Falleron, and Martine Deguillaume, Peyrat le Chateau), Millennium (Comte de Saporta, Ivoy le Pre), For Gold, Q-Sieben (both Dr. Neumann-Ulrich, Cordey), Zack, Escolar (both Haras de Hus, Petit Mars), Camargo, Total Hope (both Elevage d'Arion, Falleron), Imposantos, Apache (both Haras de la Gesse, Boulogne sur Gesse) and Maracana (Ecuries Keanbeel, Boismorand)
Three gold medals were awarded to Rhineland foals.
- Filly by Sir Sandro out of a very high-quality lipizzan mare. The breeder is the Lipizzan Stud Philip, La Roque Dantheron (Provence).
- Colt by Danciano/Negro, breeder Ecuries Favereau, Laborce (near Bordeaux)
- Filly by Flinstone/Lauries Crusador xx, breeder ZG Malleret & Thaden, Le Pian Medoc (also by Bordeaux)
A total of 34 mares were newly registered, ten of them in the Rhineland Stud Book. Of the 24 mares that were registered for Hannover, exactly half were Hannoveraner mares. The following five, all bred in France, were awarded a candidacy for the Hannoveraner Premium:
- The two full sisters Dina Sunsation (four years old) and Darling Sunsation (three years old), both by Don Juan de Hus out of the Lauries Crusador xx/Wolkenstein II daughter La Paloma du loing, breeder Wiedeke Zijp, Leffard (Normandy).
- At Haras de la Gesse These were the four-year-old Danciera de la Gesse by Dancier/Quaterback and the four-year-old Fetiche de la Gesse by Sezuan/Rubin-Royal/Woermann.
- The fifth premium candidate was the De Niro daughter Diandra de Halliers, whose dam's sire is the Holstein stallion Logan. The mare was bred and is owned by the de Halliers Stud in the Charolles
Registration trip Czech Republic (August 12 - 14, 19)
The region around Ostrava has developed into the main breeding area in the Czech Republic, where only foals for show jumping have been registered. The Hannoveraner stud Staj Mustang is located in this region. Main sire is the former Bundeschampion Quaid by Quidam's Rubin/Voltaire. Out of many good foals we have seen at Staj Mustang, mostly out of mares that were successful in sport, one of his colts stood out from a Chacco Blue/Stolzenberg dam. In the immediate vicinity is the breeding farm of Martina Zilinska, where seven foals were registered, most of them by Staj Mustang stallions. Here, a colt by Action Blue out of a Mylord/Carthago dam, who was successful in sport up to advanced level, was especially appealing. Altogether nine foals could be awarded with a gold medal in the Czech Republic, which were sired by the stallions Quaid (4 foals), Calox (2), as well as Action Blue, Al Cambero and Statis Conti (1 foal each).
Registration Trip Austria (August 15 - 21)
In Austria there were two central breeding dates. The first took place at the Equestrian Centre Austria in Gerasdorf near Vienna. Three mares were presented at the mare performance test. One of them was the three-year-old Darling Louise K by Duke Ellington/Londonderry, bred and owned by Dr. Susanna Kleindienst. She belonged to the mare family of St.Pr.St. Luise by Londonderry, of which three daughters were presented - besides Darling Louise these were her full sister Hann.Pr.A. Duchess Ellington and Hann.Pr.A. Elle K by Edward. This family, bred and owned by Dr. Susanna Kleindienst, was awarded a Ia-Prize. Among the mares tested was the Fürst Belissaro/Angard daughter Fairyspot W, bred and owned by ZG Winkelhofer, Salzburg, who had received the candidacy for the Hannoveraner Premium in 2019 and now fulfilled the performance requirements.The Hannoveraner Premium was awarded to five-year-old Donna Rosa by De Niro/Rotspon, owned by Ursula Mayer, Kaltenleutgeben and bred in Germany by Dr. Ulrich Kriebel, Bienenbüttel.
The second fixed date was almost a week later at the Bachinger Hof on the outskirts of Salzburg. For years, the Winkelhofer family, who are enthusiastic about the Hannoveraner breed, has been offering a warm and familiar environment for the central registration date on their beautiful estate here. In the small foal show, a powerfully moving and typey filly by Zack out of the performance mare dressage Ashley by Argentinus, won. She had excellent movements and was awarded the gold medal. The winning mare of the small mare show was the Spörcken/Locksley II daughter Hann.Pr.A. Saphira W bred by the Winkelhofer family and owned by Livia Glaser, Höhnhart. She also successfully passed her mare performance test on this day. She was registered for the mare performance test in Vienna, but then dropped out due to an injury and was now fit again. A Hannoveraner premium was awarded to the three-year-old Daisy by Dressage Royal/Brentano II bred and owned by Hedwig Eder, Mehrnbach. She also successfully passed her broodmare performance test on this day. She was registered for the broodmare test in Vienna, but then dropped out due to an injury and was now fit again. A Hanoverian premium was awarded to the three-year-old Daisy by Dressage Royal/Brentano II bred and owned by Hedwig Eder, Mehrnbach. The Winkelhofer family also took the opportunity to present a mare family at this event. This was the Locksley II/Rotspon daughter Love Affair bred by Wilhelm Gätke, Osten, with two full sisters, the aforementioned four-year-old Hann.Pr.A. Saphira W and the three-year-old Savanna W, both by Spörcken. This family received a Ia-Prize.
Between these two fixed points in Vienna and in Salzburg, there were numerous other registration dates, where we especially saw excellent foals. Eleven of them were awarded the coveted gold medal. The foal with the overall highest score was a magnificent filly by the Vitalis/Dancier son Villeneuve out of a Rosandro/Rohdiamant dam bred and owned by Josef Frech from Waldneukirchen. The other gold medal foals besides the two mentioned above were by the stallions Q-Sieben, Fusionist, Diamant de Semilly, Casall, Bon Coeur, Finnigan, Vivino, Don Schufro, and Bon Courage. The Floriscount/Donnerhall/Pik Bube-daughter Fayett, bred and owned by Emmerich Hobl, Munderfing, was awarded the Hannoveraner Premium.
High-class training for judges in Gerasdorf near Vienna
It has already become a tradition that August 15th is celebrated at the Equestrian Centre Austria in Gerasdorf as Hanoveraner Day (see report on the registration trip Austria).
Every year Susanna Kleindienst and her great team put together a great program with elements from breeding, sport, and judges' training, which is organized for horse experts from all over the country in cooperation with the Austrian Horse Sports Association. After the Hannoveraner Breeding Block in the morning, the afternoon was dedicated to horse training. With Dr. Ulf Möller and the international dressage judge Gislain Fouarge, top-class speakers were won over. The team of the Equestrian Centre Austria presented suitable horses of all ages and training levels, all Hannoveraner horses, most of them from their own breeding. This afternoon was an absolute advertisement for the equestrian sport and for good, horse-friendly training, as it is maintained at the Equestrian Centre Austria.
Russia - Success for Oleg Sheiko
On August 23rd a CSI** was held in Evanskoe/RUS, which was announced as a qualification for the World Cup Finals. The winner of the WC qualifier show jumping competition was the 2009 born Hanoverian stallion Quarenghi by Quintender/Escudo I. The bay stallion was bred by the dedicated Hanoverian breeder Oleg Sheiko near Moscow. Quarenghi was ridden by Natalia Simonia.
USA – Championships for Young and Developing Horses
From August 19 - 24, the US Championships for Young Dressage Horses took place in Wayne/IL. In the class for five-year-old dressage horses, the Rhineland gelding Easy di Fonte Abeti Ymas by Grand Galaxy Win/Rubinstein I and rider Pablo Gomez Molina won. The black horse was bred in Italy by Societa Agricola and is owned by Christina Danguillecourt and Yeguada de Ymas S.L.
New meaning of “elite stallions”
At its summer meeting, the board of directors of the American Hanoverian Society has decided to follow the decision made by the German horse breeding associations that no minimum mark for passing a stallion performance test will be set anymore. However, stallions that have passed a stallion performance test with a minimum score of 7.5 or better will receive an upgrade. In the future, they will receive the title 'Elite Stallion'.
Bundeschampionate jumping and eventing
Two weeks of events instead of one, no spectators, no exhibitors - these are the conditions under which the Bundeschampionat will be held in Warendorf from August 26 to September 6 in corona times. In the first week from August 26th to 30th, the show jumping and eventing horses determined their winners and placed, from September 2nd to 6th, the dressage horses, as well as the riding horses, are in Warendorf.

The fifth, sixth and seventh places were taken by Hanoverian offspring of the stallions Diarado, Cascadello I, and Stolzenberg.
The finals of the five-year-old event horses were dominated by Hanoverians. Eight of the ten best-placed horses, including all medal winners, carry the stylized H. Diacontinus x Stalypso is the pedigree of the winner Dark Gambler bred by Andreas Middelkamp, Badbergen. He was ridden by Antonia von Baath. The bay gelding Abraxas by Araldik/Now or Never M (breeder: Manfred Schäfer, Köchingen) followed on the silver rank under Pia Münker.

Preselection for the Verden Stallion Licensing from September 7-18
Also this year the stallion preselection for the Verden licensing will lead the selection committee through the breeding area. The colts of the vintage 2018 will be preselected at 15 sites. However, this only applies to the dressage colts. In connection with the discipline-related separation of the licensing commission, the board of the Hannoveraner Verband decided to select the jumping colts centrally in Verden.
Verden Stallion Licensing and Stallion Sales from October 20 to 24, 2020
From October 20 to 24, the Niedersachsenhalle will once again be dedicated to young stallions. About 100 radiant representatives of the 2018 vintage are eagerly awaited. This year, the licensing and stallion sales for Hanoverians and Rhinelanders will be divided into a dressage part and a jumping part. This will make it possible for more spectators to experience part of the licensing and stallion sales despite the corona-related restrictions.
Not only the announcement of the licensing decisions is exciting, the stallion sales on Thursday and Saturday is exciting as well. Both auction days are introduced by a discipline-related show program. In addition, the proclamations of the "Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2020" and the "Hanoverian Mare of the Year 2020" are eagerly awaited.
Due to the official requirements caused by the Corona pandemic, 500 people are permitted in the Niedersachsenhalle per event day. Many tickets have already been sold since the beginning of the year, partly through subscriptions and partly on free sale. All tickets lose their validity and will be refunded. In order to enable as many people as possible to attend the event, everyone can only obtain tickets for one day. People from one household can choose between two and four tickets on the hall plan. Advance ticket sales begin on 23 September and will only be possible online via the Ticketmaster homepage www.ticketmaster.de, i.e. not at the association office.
The Hannoveraner Verband will broadcast all presentations relevant to the licensing via ClipMyHorse: www.clipmyhorse.tv

Herwart von der Decken-Show
Due to Covid-19, the Herwart-von-der-Decken-Show with a limited number of spectators took place in the Niedersachsenhalle and not on the newly designed tournament site. Besides board member Jörn Wedermann and breeding director Ulrich Hahne, the Danish horse expert Ib Kirk from Katrinelund Stud belonged to the judges' trio. 19 showjumpers competed, which were judged in two sections. The winner was Hann.Pr.A. Charlize by Chaccoon Blue/Stolzenberg, bred and owned by Hermann Nehus, Haren, followed by Poppy Lifton by Perigueux/Cheenook, bred and owned by Gestüt Waldsee, Bad Zwischenahn. All four mares, representing the Bezirksverband Hannoveraner International, competed in the dressage mare classes. In the first division, Hann.Pr.A. Be my Beauty Queen by Bonds/San Amour bred by Stefan Hermann/GER and owned by Lone Boegh Hansen/DNK represented the international colors and took second place behind the later Reserve Champion of the show Bon Bon by Bon Coeur/Waterford (bred by Marion Gabel, Kreuzebra; owned by Eike Bewerungen, Oldenburg). Hann.Pr.A. Daniella by Don Nobless/Lemony's Nicket, breeder Harmony Sporhorses, and Ingo Pape, owner Harmony Sporhorses/USA, took third place in her section, two places ahead of Hann.Pr.A. Filomena G. by Farrell/Wynton bred and owned by Stutteri G./DNK.Also from Denmark was Hann.Pr.A. Fiola Romance v. For Romance I/Wolkenstein II (breeder and owner: Henriette Bregendorf/DNK), who was awarded the 1j-Prize in her section. The sovereign winner of the Herwart-von-der-Decken-Show was Hann.Pr.A.

Ixxi CE by Il Divo xx/Don Frederico (breeder: Indra Wallner, Moltzow; owners: Claudia Hein-Riemann and Eduard Riemann, Alsbach) was awarded best half-breed mare.

Verden Championships for 3yo mares & geldings and stallions
Rock Festival by Rock Forever/Fürstenball (breeder: Joline Durand, Hörstel) won the Hannoveraner Championships for three-year-old mares and geldings with great ease. Breeder Joline Durand presented her powerful and athletic bay herself in the Verden dressage ring. Vice-champion became Bond Street by Bon Coeur/Don Index (breeder: Harry Heitmann, Kreepen). The big-framed chestnut with an impressive canter was ridden by Friederike Tebbel.
The three-year-old stallions had a neck-and-neck race. Va'Pensiero by Vitalis/Fürstenball (breeder: Zuchthof Düvel, Katlenburg-Lindau) collected scores of 9.0 and better throughout and was awarded for this great performance with the yellow and white champion's sash. The impressive stallion was ridden by Hannah Laser. Only one-tenth of a point behind was the son of Revolution/Belstaff, Rockabye (breeder: Sally Hjort Schultz, Bolderslev/DEN). Together with his rider, Sina Aringer, the bay got the highest score of the day, 10, for his canter. [More]
Verden Championships for 4yo stallions and mares & geldings
He did it again: The Dancier/Floriscount son Danciero (bred by ZG Broers and Weber, Aurich) collected top scores with Eva Möller and became Champion of four-year-old stallions. The expressive black horse received a 10 for his canter and training. Judge Jörn Wedermann attested him a great perspective. Vice-champion was Bon Courage by Bon Coeur/Vivaldi (breeder: Dr. Christine Feichtinger, Vaduz/LIE), who was effectively presented by Jessica Lynn Thomas.
The most striking appearance in class for four-year-old mares and geldings and new Hanoverian Champion was Tom Jones KR by Tomahawk/Donnerhall (breeder: Dr. Ulrich Kriebel, Bienenbüttel). The bay with a tremendous canter, whose dam Dorata K once represented the Hanoverian colors at the Bundeschampionat, was shown by Nicole Vater. Just nuances behind him, the Fürst Romancier/Angard son Flintstone (bred by Kathrin Schuchardt, Ahnatal), who was born in Hessen, won the silver ribbon. The bay was part of the dressage collection at the Elite Auction last October. His rider was Louise Noergaard Jesen. [More]
Verden Championships for 4-, 5- and 6yo jumping horses
The first champions were crowned at the newly built show grounds on the Lindhooper Straße. Two champions are owned by the State Stud Celle. The decision was exciting in the four-year-old class. Celle’s stallion Valensky by Valentino/Cornet Obolensky (breeder: Hendrik A. Könemann, Thomasburg) with rider Sven Rudolph was the one who coped best with the hot weather conditions. A tenth of a second separated him from Otto de la Roche by Orlando/Check In (breeder: Elke and Claudia Tegtmeyer, Norderney), whom Oliver Ross presented in a masterly manner and who became Vice-Champion. Third place went to the son of Diacontinus/Quebec, Dracarys (breeder: Carsten Frerichs, Weener), and rider Oliver Cordes.
In the class for five-year-olds, Tobias Meyer presented his Starrico by Stolzenberg/Carrico (breeder: Tanja Reupke, Eicklingen) in the final to the point and took the yellow-white sash. Although gelded, the powerfully jumping chestnut is owned and trained by the Celle State Stud, too. Second place went to the privately-owned sire Valencio by Van Gogh/Vulkano (breeder: Norbert Bramlage, Dinklage) with rider Patrick Döller. Bronze won Campino MR (Rhld.) by Colestus/Clinton (breeder: Marius Rittstieg, Seeburg) with Roman Duchac. The athletic bay was Champion of four-year-olds last year and won the free jumping competition of the Hannoveraner Jumper Breeding Program two years ago.
There was a favorite victory among the six-year-olds. The Stakkato-Prize winner Karajan by Kannan/Verdi (breeder: Werner Schultze, Heese) not only won the qualifier with Christian Temme, but was also unbeatable in the final on this day. The silver medal went to the son of Stakkato/Cristo, Stuntman (breeder: Siegfried Buhl, Syke), and rider Marvin Drenkhahn. Another son of Stakkato completed the podium. Holger Prekel directed Sterling AG by Stakkato/Calypso II (breeder: Dr. Alexandra Görgens, Steinfeld) to third place.
Verden Auction Online Foals on August 8/9
The Verden Auction Online of foals developed into a real summer party. The 104 exquisite foals reached the great average price of 10,185 Euros. Frontman lives up to his name and with the top price of 48,000 Euros he led the 2020 vintage.
For the first time in a long while, an almost "real" auction atmosphere was created. One day before the auction, the team of the Hannoveraner Verband invited to the Niedersachsenhalle to present the auction foals, taking into account the official requirements due to the Corona pandemic. Numerous visitors followed this invitation, and the 2020 vintage presented itself magnificently at this overture. On Saturday and Sunday, the final bids were made in front of the screens at home.
