Breeding

Family Competition

Friedrich-Jahncke Prize for the Best Mare Family.

Every four years the family competition takes place at the Herwart von der Decken-Show in Verden. Here the best mare families of the Hannoveraner breed compete. The families each consist of three mares, which either belong together in a generation sequence grandmother, mother, daughter, of three daughters of a mother or of a mother with two daughters. The family competition is a real highlight and will take place next time in 2021.

To ensure that the time until then is not too long, this year the highest rated family of the current show season will be awarded the Friedrich Jahncke-Prize. 40 exhibited families of this show season underline the interest of the Hannoveraner breeders in this competition. The award for this family on the occasion of the Herwart von der Decken-Show in Verden on August 6th will be given by the namesake Friedrich Jahncke himself.

The Friedrich Jahncke-Prize will be awarded annually from this year, with the exception of the years in which the Herwart von der Decken-Show with family competition takes place. It will contribute to an enrichment of the Hanoverian mare show system and be a prize for which the Hanoverian breeders are happy to compete.
