News from Germany

The integration of the Rhineland studbook into the Hannoveraner Verband

 

The merger between Hannoveraner Verband and the Rhineland studbook has been completed successfully. We would like to give a short overview of the most important facts concerning the integration of the Rhineland studbook into the Hannoveraner Verband.

The members of the Rhineland studbook are now members of the Hannoveraner Verband. The Rhineland studbook will be continued as a second studbook besides the Hannoveraner studbook. The horses will be branded with the rhenisch studbook brand.

Hannoveraner Verband aims to offer the Rhineland breeding program in all countries, where Hanoverians are bred. The Rhineland studbook belongs to the studbooks who are approved for the Hanoverian breeding program. Rhineland horses are eligible to participate at all events of Hannoveraner Verband (f.i. mare shows, stallion licensing, auctions).

The regulations of the Rhineland studbook differ from the Hanoverian studbook rules with regard to mare- and stallion book requirements. Rhineland studbook accepts mares and stallions of most major studbooks. So there are many cases where it will be possible to register foals with the Rhineland studbook who are by stallions, who are not approved for the Hannoveraner breeding program.

The studbook is named after the region Rhineland, which is the very southern part of Nordrhein-Westfalen. It is on the very western part of Germany in direct neighbourhood of the countries Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. The biggest cities in the region are Cologne, Duesseldorf and Aachen, site of the world famous Aachen horse show. Genetically the Rhineland was always closely related to Hannover. Already in the 1950’s, breeders started buying fillies from good Hanoverian mother lines. Famous stallions like Florestan and Belissimo were Rhineland bred with a high percentage of Hanoverian blood.

The headquarters of the Rhineland studbook are in the town of Wickrath, where the studbook operates a sales barn, which is quite successful. This will be continued under the Hanoverian umbrella and can be used from all members of Hannoveraner Verband for sale activities, auction selections and mare shows. At the time of the merger with Hannover, Rhineland had a base of 1700 warmbood mares, owned by approximately 1000 breeders. Homepage Rhineland: www.pferdezucht-rheinland.de

Foal registration, branding and passports.

Please notify the society when foals are born to organise passports. Please use the address and details at the top of this page.

We would like to remind all breeders that according to the breeding rules of the society "The birth of a foal must be reported within 28 days to the authorised representative of the BHHS". If you have not already done so, please could you send to the Studbook manager as soon as possible a copy of the covering certificate for any foals born this year. This is vital information to enable the timely registration and branding of foals.
