Hanoverian Stallion Licensing and Stallion Sales

October 21 to 24, 2020

From October 21 to October 24, the Niedersachsenhalle will once again be opened up for young colts. More than 100 promising representatives of the year 2018 are eagerly awaited. They are the best of their age-group and will be presented to the licensing commission on the triangle, in free jumping and lunging before finding a new owner at the stallion sales on Saturday in front of a large audience.

Numerous sport careers have begun at the Verden stallion licensing. A prime example is two-times World Champion D'Avie. The impressive chestnut stallion once left the Niedersachsenhalle for Denmark as a premium stallion and was celebrated in Ermelo/NED this year and last year as World Champion of young dressage horses.

Not only the announcement of the judgments will be exciting, the stallion market on Saturday will be exciting, too. The auction will be preceded by a show programme. The proclamations of the "Hannoveraner Stallion of the Year 2020" and the "Hannoveraner Mare of the Year 2020" are eagerly awaited. There will also be a reunion with numerous horses that once had their first appearance in Verden at the age of two and a half.

Preselection 2020

Also this year the stallion preselection for the Verden licensing will lead the selection committee through the breeding area. The colts of the vintage 2018 will be preselected at 15 sites. However, this only applies to the dressage stallions. In connection with the discipline-related separation of the licensing commission, the board of the Hannoveraner Verband decided to select the jumping stallions centrally in Verden.

The Preselection for the Hanoverian Stallion Licensing will take place from September 7-18.
