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.

3G rule
A person is "vaccinated" if he or she provides proof of a complete vaccination against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This is the case when 14 days have passed since the time vaccination (at Johnson & Johnson only one-time vaccination). For convalescents, this applies immediately after vaccination.

"Convalescent" is a person with convalescent evidence, i.e. a positive PCR test or certificate based on a PCR test at least 28 days and no more than 6 months ago.

A person is considered to be "tested" with one of the following proofs:

- PCR test (valid for a maximum of 48 hours since sample collection).
-PoC antigen rapid test (valid for a maximum of 24 hours).
-A self-test performed under the supervision of a third person (valid for max. 24 hours).

Press accreditation for the licensing

The anticipation is huge in Verden: The Verden Stallion Licensing with Stallion Sales for the dressage stallions will take place in Verden from 4 to 6 November and the licensing of the show jumping stallions from 2 to 4 December.

The final accreditation deadline for the dressage stallion licensing is 28 October and for the jumping stallions 25 November.

Accredited media representatives will also have to adhere to the event and hygiene concept in August and must carry proof of complete vaccination (at least 14 days old) or Covid recovery (not older than six months). Coronatests may still take place on site.

A mandatory requirement for press accreditation is proof of editorial/photographic activity for publication purposes in print organs/online portals with relevant coverage/TV/radio. Accreditation for purely research and/or information purposes or exclusively social media applications is excluded in view of the pandemic-related restrictions.

Highest priority is given on the one hand to the general conditions for the licensing and on the other hand to the safety and health of all involved on the show grounds. These challenges also affect media accreditation, which is already possible online at the following link:
