Hannoveraner Verband - connected decentralized in the regions
The Hannoveraner Verband was founded in 1922 by an alliance of horse breeders. Due to the large number of members, the subdivision into three levels, which has been successfully practiced since the beginning, has been maintained - under the central Verband there are supra-regional Regional Societies and under them local horse breeding clubs. Membership in the Hannoveraner Verband therefore deliberately includes membership in one of the regional breeding clubs.
The more than 85 breeding clubs are the direct contact from the Hannoveraner Verband or the Regional Societies to the breeders. They organize breeding events for their region, e.g. studbook inspections, mare shows and mare performance tests, as well as meetings and information events.
Since its foundation, the central Verband has consisted of supra-regional Regional Societies and local breeding clubs, which are the direct link to the breeder. The nine Regional Societies of Braunschweig, Hanover, Hesse/South Germany, Lüneburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Osnabrück/Emsland, East Frisia/Oldenburg and Stade as well as the Regional Society Hannoveraner International are the foundation of the Hannoveraner Verband. The Regional Society Hannoveraner International represents the interests of all breeders abroad. It includes the four daughter societies the American Hanoverian Society, the Hanoverian Horse Society of Australia, the British Hanoverian Horse Society and the Hanoverian Society of New Zealand and the breeding clubs in Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Russia, Sweden and South Africa.
The Regional Societies occupy the middle position between the Hannoveraner Verband and the breeding clubs in their region. The Regional Societies and breeding clubs are of elementary importance for the local breeding activities, the regional cohesion as well as the communication within the Verband. They promote the exchange of information and represent both the interests of the members to the Verband’s management and the interests of the Verband’s management to the members.
The commitment of the young breeders in the horse breeding clubs is also really great. Here, the upcoming generation of breeders is familiarized with the specialized knowledge. Several breeding clubs also organize sales events and foal shows.
