Dear Hanoverian and Rhineland breeders,
in Germany, we are currently gaining initial experience of how horse breeding events can be carried out under the Corona regulations. A first mare performance test took place in Verden yesterday, today is the final day of the 14-day test for young stallions in Adelheidsdorf. In the Niedersachsenhalle Verden, the riding horses are prepared for the online auction on May 30th and are available for trying out until then. The signs are pointing to relaxation and so we hope that we will be able to hold the scheduled dates in many other countries as well and welcome you as our Hanoverian and Rhineland breeders. A complete schedule will be online soon. Please check www.hannoveraner.com for this.

Studbook inspection by video
The board of the Hannoveraner Verband has decided that a studbook inspection of mares as a basis for registration in the Hannoveraner or Rhenish Stud Book is also possible by video. Only an overall score will be given, the awarding of a candidature for the Hanoverian premium is not possible. However, this possibility is only considered in justified exceptional cases, if official dates cannot be kept and a visit to the farm is not possible. Especially in the field of tension of the current corona pandemic, this is a reasonable addition to the offer of the Hannoveraner Verband. The Hanoverian Verband will soon produce a sample video showing how a mare should be presented in the video.
Registration trip in Austria
This year again two central dates are planned for the Austrian Hannoveraner and Rheinländer breeders. Fixed date for the Hanoverian Day at the Equestrian Centre Austria in Gerasdorf near Vienna is August 15th. This is how it should be also this year. A mare performance test is planned as well as foal and mare show with the possibility of awarding premiums. Also again in the programme is a further training seminar of the Austrian Equestrian Federation on the subject of judging riding horses. Dr. Ulf Möller was won as a speaker for this seminar.
The second central date is planned for Friday, August 21, at the Bachinger Gut riding stable in Salzburg. It is planned to hold a mare and foal show with studbook entry and foal registration.
The Hannoveraner Verband takes part in online tournaments. The digitalization of life does not stop at equestrian sports. The Equi League platform has developed a concept for how tournaments can now be held online. The Hannoveraner Verband considers this to be a very interesting concept and offers dressage and show jumping riders on Hanoverian and Rhineland horses to compete across national borders. Especially in the current situation, where only a few tournaments can take place, this is an interesting alternative. Currently, preparations are underway for a very short-term pilot project, which is to run from 30 May to 1 June. You can find more information on www.equi-league.de.

Has your premium mare candidate met all the requirements?
Every breeder is delighted if his/her mare is awarded the title of state premium candidate. However, please keep in mind that certain conditions are attached to this award, i.e. the passing of a mare performance test, the veterinary examination for roaring and the use for breeding. After meeting all of these requirements within set time limits, an annual premium will be paid for a fixed period of time. Here too, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
