Dear Hanoverian and Rhineland breeders,
until at least the end of October, major events will continue to be prohibited in Germany. Of course, horse breeding and equestrian sports are also strongly affected by this. The Hannoveraner Verband is doing everything possible under the current circumstances. In April we had to cut back a bit, but since then all employees are working with all their strength again. The first major registration trips to other countries are scheduled for July. In the core breeding area, we have high season with mare performance tests and subsequent premiums for the mares, online auctions have proven to be successful in marketing, and the tournament office organizes numerous late-entry tournaments without spectator participation. Making the best of the situation - that is our goal for our breeders and for our customers.

The first test run of the Hannoveraner online tournament for riders with Hanoverians and Rhinelanders via Equi League took place from May 30th to June 1st with 23 starters. After the first teething troubles have been cured, the second test run is to take place from July 3 - 5. The actual ‘Hannoveraner Equi League’ will then follow on four dates, whereby the same tests will be ridden each time. The four dates are: July 17-19, August 7-9, August 28-30 and September 18-20. The three best results of a rider in the same class will be added together to give the final result.
And this is how it is done:
- Register for free at www.equi-league.com. (Look for confirmation in your spam folder if necessary).
- Enter for the test
- Shoot two videos: of the warm-up and of the test.
- Upload videos - done!
After the test, a ranking will be made. Each participant will receive a protocol with the evaluation and a comment on the ride.
Verden Championships in August
It is not new that the renamed Verden Championships will take place differently than we were used to. However, in the past weeks there have been further changes. Postponements and delays as well as the Corona pandemic question the timely readiness of the racecourse area. Fortunately, pVerd-event GmbH has generous alternative possibilities at its disposal, so that planning security can be created for all parties involved.
Probably from August 4, the tests of the Hannoveraner Championships of three- to six-year-old riding and dressage horses will be held on the premises of the former riding and driving school. The final tests for three- and four-year-old riding horses are scheduled to be held on August 7th and 8th. The tests of the Hanoverian Jumping Championships for young horses will be held a few weeks later as a late entry tournament. These will also be the first tests on the newly designed racetrack area. Further tests within the framework of the Verden Championships (qualification for the Louisdor Prize, qualification for the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal, Almased Amateur Cup) will probably be held in the Niedersachsenhalle from August 7th.
The Herwart von der Decken-Show will take place on Thursday, August 6th, on the grounds of the Riding and Driving School. Whether the Verden auction for foals and broodmares planned for August 7th and 8th will take place on site or whether it will be held as an online auction is not yet certain. To what extent visitors are allowed on the premises or in the Niedersachsenhalle cannot be said at this time. As soon as decisions have been made, they will be published on the website

Verden - Gala evening, elite auction and stallion licensing with auction
Due to the corona pandemic, major events are not permitted in Germany until the end of October. This restriction also applies to the elite auction with gala evening as well as the stallion licensing with subsequent auction. It is already certain that the gala evening before the elite auction will not take place this year. We cannot yet say at this time in which form and under which conditions the Elite Auction and the stallion licensing with auction can be held.
Verden stallion licensing – Hannes Baumgart and Markus Beerbaum new members of licensing commission
On 29 May, Hannover's stallion raisers met in Verden. Also this year, the licensing in autumn – under observance of the then valid official requirements – is to be the highlight of the breeders' year. For the first time, the licensing commission will make their decision based on discipline in two groups. Dressage rider Hannes Baumgart and the internationally successful show jumper Markus Beerbaum will complete the commissions.
While up to now the experts for dressage and show jumping have judged all the stallions together with the breeding director, they will in future only deal with the youngsters in their discipline. Only breeding director Ulrich Hahne and Martin Spoo as representative of the District Association of North Rhine-Westphalia will participate in the licensing of all stallions.
Verden stallion licensing - Preselection of colts
Also this year the pre-selection for the Verden licensing will lead the selection committee through the breeding area. The colts of the vintage 2018 will be selected at 15 pre-selection 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 has decided to select the jumping colts centrally in Verden.
The pre-selection dates are going to start at 8 a.m., the other dates will follow accordingly. Any Hanoverian or Rhineland young stallion born in 2018 and fulfilling the pedigree requirements for the Hanoverian Stud Book of the Hannoveraner Verband e. V. can be registered for the pre-selection of stallions for the Hanoverian stallion licensing from 21 to 24 October 2020. The registration of colts for the pre-selection is possible via MeinHannoveraner. [More]
Videos of mare performance tests
In the home of the Hanoverian, the season of mare performance tests is in full swing. Young mares can also be presented at these dates to apply for the Hanoverian premium. In cooperation with the website Rimondo all mares are filmed and there is a short highlight video of each event. You can find these short videos under this link at Youtube: [More]
14-day test in Adelheidsdorf
In May, a 14-day suitability test took place at the stallion testing station in Adelheidsdorf under strict hygiene conditions. 19 stallions took part. The best stallion in the test was the Westphalian Ellis by Escolar/Dimaggio with a weighted final score of 8.5, who scored between 8.5 and 9.5 for his basic gaits, rideability and interior qualities (weighted dressage final score 9.09). He is available to Hanoverian and Rhineland breeders at the Krüsterhof in Voerde. Six Hanoverian stallions were entered for the test. Vermeer by Vitalis/Sir Savoy (breeder: Theresa Bahlsen, Kirchwalsede/GER) finished the test with a weighted overall score of 8.15 and a weighted dressage final score of 8.25. He stands at the Main and State Stud Marbach. All results can be found at www.hengstleistungspruefung.de.
