Autumn has slowly made itself noticeable at the Hannoveraner Verband in Verden. Not only the weather heralds the golden autumn and the leaves are slowly turning yellow, but also the licensing season is coming soon. After last year in Verden, for the first time, there were separate licensing committees for different disciplines, this year there will be two different licensings of the Hannoveraner Verband. The dressage stallions will gather in Verden on the first weekend of November from November 4 to 6 and the showjumping stallions four weeks later from December 2 to 4. More information about the licensing and ticket sales can be found in this newsletter.
We had already announced it - Dr. Ludwig Christmann will go into his well-deserved retirement at the end of the year. Starting next week, he will only work on certain projects. The team of the Department Breeding International with Tanja Coors, Bo Eitenmüller, Juliana Küspert and me will of course be available for all questions!

Verden Stallion Licensing and Stallion Sales - Dressage stallions - November, 4 to 6, 2021
After the first time that separate licensing committees acted according to disciplines in Verden last year, there will even be two different licensings of the Hannoveraner Verband this year. The dressage stallions will meet in Verden on the first weekend in November from November 4 to 6 and the show jumping stallions a full four weeks later from
December 2 to 4.
The procedures, however, remain basically unchanged. The dressage stallions will be shown on the triangle, in lunging, free running and jumping. With the presentation on the triangle, the heart of the Verden licensing thus remains. New to the program could be three- and four-year-old stallions that can be admitted to the licensing for the first time in 2021. These will then additionally be presented under the rider.
British Hanoverian Horse Society Annual Show
The annual show of the British Hanoverian Society (BHHS), which could not take place last year due to Corona, was held on the first weekend of September at the spacious grounds of Hartpury College, Gloucester. Mare performance tests, a foal show and a mare show were all on the program. Among the four mares in the mare performance test, the four-year-old Flower Girl RMD by Floriscount/Don Schufro/Sandro Hit from the Hannoveraner mare line of Naturkind stood out. Three above-average basic gaits, good rideability and a lot of skill in free jumping distinguished her. Breeder and owner is Rosie Moreton Deakin, How Caple. She also impressed at the mare show held one day later and was show winner.
The BHHS show marries British traditions with the Hannoveraner Verband show system. The British tradition includes the title of Supreme Champion. The winners of all show classes including foals compete for this title. And this year it was the winning foal that won the title of Supreme Champion. He already had the appropriate name Le Chef. The young stallion descends from the KWPN stallion Le Formidable by Bordeaux out of a dam by Zack/Londonderry (mare line of Hacienda) and inspired both by his type, his athleticism, but above all by outstanding movements both in trot and walk. He was bred by Carsten Sandrock, Worcester. Together with Lynn Crowden, Woodlander Stud, he has formed a community of owners for this promising stallion. Reserve winner of the foals was a colt also of very high quality, a noble dark chestnut by Viva Gold/Rubin Royal. He was bred and exhibited by Lucinda Bellis, Warrington. Best filly was a big-lined, noble and strong-moving daughter of Revolution out of the Trakehner mare Magic Megane by Songline, breeder and owner Silvia Tainton, Malvern. All foals had previously qualified for the finals at Hartpury at regional foal shows.
In the youngstock class, young mares between one and three years of age were presented. Here there was a clear winning mare with the Foundation daughter Foundations Gold NS. Her dam is a Dutch mare by Vivaldi/Sunnyboy. She impressed with expression, substance and above-average movements. She was bred and exhibited by Sandra Ogden, Holmes Chapel. There were two mare classes for older mares. At the top in in each class were outstanding mares. In the six- to nine-year-old division, the Zack/Londonderry daughter Zsa Zsu, dam of the winning colt, was the winner. She is a very expressive, noble and large-lined mare bred by Sara Lucas, Welwyn, and owned by Carsten Sandrock, Worcester. The winner of the ten-year-old and older mares and reserve champion mare of the show was the ten-year-old state premium mare For Your Love by For Compliment/Longchamp, another expressive, medium-framed mare who wowed with her outstanding trot movements. Two mare families were presented. Here the Rubin Royal daughter Royal Fee of Lucinda Bellis, Holmes Chapel, won with a two-year-old daughter of Don Nobless and the reserve winner of the colts by Viva Gold. Overall, this show confirmed the high level of British Hanoverian breeding.
Breeding show in Russia
The first visit of a German representative of the Hannoveraner Verband to Russia during the Corona crisis took place from September 9 to 12. Dr Ludwig Christmann was part of the judging commission of a breeding show for two to four year old dressage and show jumping horses in the impressive Maxima Park in the Moscow region.
The Hannoveraner Club Russia with its active chairwoman Marina Politova was the main organizer of the event, in which a total of 33 horses from Russian and European sport horse breeding participated. From the Hannoveraner point of view, the two-year-old Rhineland mare Flame Rose Lyvit, bred by Lidia Vitkovskaya, Saint Petersburg, and owned by Irina Voloshina, Moscow, as well as Darling Hit by Dantander Hit/Walchensee, bred at Weedern Stud, Kaliningrad Region, and owned by Irina Logacheva, Novosibirsk, made a good impression.
The next day, there was a central Hanoverian appointment at Oleg Sheyko's Elitar Stud in Moscow. The three-year-old Nobre xx/Come On daughter Nicole, bred by Elitar, was awarded a premium candidacy. who promised a versatile disposition in the mare performance test that was also held that day. Also bred by Elitar were two foals that were awarded a gold medal. They were descended from Sandro Marinero/World Diamond and Nobre xx/Quality. Already before, Marina Politova had visited many Russian breeders to register foals and, in video coordination with the headquarters in Verden, to inspect mares.

Supporter's club of Hannoveraner Sport horses
In September, the Association for the promotion of Hannoveraner Sport horses awarded two successful Hannoveraner. In future, Matthis Westendarp's show jumping horse Stalido and Jannik Heiland's vaulting horse Dark Beluga will be competing with the name suffix FRH.
In Vilamoura/POR, the Stakkato/Calido son Stalido (breeder: Renate Bosse, Wendeburg) and Germany's Matthis Westendarp became European Champions of the young riders. These were the third Championships for the 2006-born bay and his 19-year-old riders from Wallenhorst. Already two years ago, the two had become European Team Champions in Zuidwolde/NED. Now another award follows with the name suffix FRH. Stalido FRH is the second FRH horse of the Westendarp family. Only two years ago, the homebred Four Seasons FRH and Alexa Westendarp received this honour for their outstanding successes in the dressage arena.
With a very emotional tribute, Dark Beluga was duly celebrated at the German Vaulting Championships, which took place in Verden, with the name suffix FRH. The De Niro/Akzent II son (breeder: Heinz Nölkenhöner, Raddestorf, owner: Barbara and Franca Rosiny and Dr. Markus Jaeger-Rosiny, Lüneburg) is one of the best vaulting horses in the world. With German Jannik Heiland and his owner Barbara Rosiny on the lunge, he became Vice World Champion in Budapest/HUN a few weeks ago and was part of the German team that won gold in the team classification. In addition, he also helped Janika Derks to a silver medal in the women's final. Dark Beluga FRH and Jannik Heiland added another title to their World and European Championship titles in Verden: They became German Champions in the men's individual vaulting.
