Update: Changes and cancellations at the Hannoveraner Verband due to the corona virus.

Latest update: March 20th
In view of the special circumstances, the election committee has decided to postpone the deadline for submitting election proposals from April 6 to April 27. This will allow the upcoming deliberations to be conducted with due diligence, while still leaving sufficient time to review the election proposals and publish them in advance of the Assembly of Delegates.

Furthermore, the election committee would also like to offer that election proposals can be sent electronically to

Status: March 19th
Owing to the current situation caused by the corona virus, the Verden auction on April 18, 2020 will not take place.  Due to official regulations, the event in the Niedersachsenhalle is not feasible on this day.

Subject to further developments and in great hope that the situation will ease, we would therefore like to plan to auction the riding horses from the April collection on Saturday, 30 May 2020. A foal auction is planned for this day in Verden. We would then add the riding horses from the April collection to the collection of foals. The delivery of the riding horses take place in Verden on May, 18th.


Status: March 18th
We are currently unable to welcome breeders at the Verband office and would ask that any questions arising be clarified by telephone or e-mail.


Status: March 17th

Dear breeders, exhibitors and customers,

the current situation around the corona virus is confusing and changes almost daily. As things stand today, public events are forbidden in Lower Saxony up to and including 18 April.

We are currently examining various options for holding the auction, i.e. in addition to the possibility of an online auction, we are also considering alternative auction dates. We will inform you immediately as soon as one or more options are ready to be considered as a result of our considerations and possible political developments in the coming days and ask for your understanding that we will need a few more days until then. Nevertheless, we are of course available for further questions and suggestions.

Our office is currently working at "half power" in order to hopefully get through this crisis-ridden period without having to close down completely. Should there be delays in reaching individual employees or in answering e-mails, we also ask for your understanding.


Last update: March 16th

In order to join the demands for the containment of the corona virus, the Hannoveraner Verband is currently reacting with the following measures:

- Initially, work will be carried out on a weekly basis from 17-29 March with different teams and partly in the home office. This is intended to maintain business operations in spite of possibly still changing conditions. At the end of this period, a decision will be made on the further procedure depending on the situation. We ask for your understanding in case of delayed replies.

- The upcoming events / meetings / seminars of the Hannoveraner Verband will be cancelled until mid-April, partly postponed. This concerns the following events:
-Verden Horse Seminars: "How to successfully apply the basics of free jumping" and "How to lunge horses properly" - new date will follow
-Free Jumping Competition for three and four year olds from the Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program on April 1st -  Cancelled
-Discussion round on the breeding of eventing horses on March 31st - Cancelled
-Discussion of the stallion breeding - new date probably in May
-Studbuch inspection dates in Herzlake and Timmel - new date probably in May
-training dates of the young breeders - Cancelled
-Sport tests for stallions from 20 to 22 April in Verden - Cancelled
-Verden evening on April 17th - Cancelled (further information can be found further down in the news)

- The Assembly of Delegates is postponed, new date: 29 June 2020 at 10.00 a.m.
In order to give all delegates the opportunity to participate at lower risk (corona virus), the Assembly of Delegates will be postponed to 29 June. After consultation with the electoral committee, we would like to maintain the date of 6 April for the submission of election proposals. Further information and the date for publication of the election proposals will follow.

This is the information as it stands today (16 March). If further changes become necessary, we will publish them on the homepage of the Hannoveraner Verband.


Due to the current situation around the corona virus and the related official requirements, the Verden evening on April 17th will not take place.

The exact procedure regarding the foal collection is still to be decided.
Basically we would like to offer the foals at the Verden auction in April. Depending on the development of the situation, there are two alternatives to the indoor auction: either selling the foals in an online auction or integrating them into the collection of the Verden Foal Auction on May 30, 2020. As soon as there is a decision on this, it will be published.
