Hannoveraner Jumper Breeding Program

The Hannoveraner Jumper Breeding Program (PHS) has been launched in 1993. This program aims at supporting and improving  the breeding of show jumping horses. Part of the Hanoverian breed is designated to specifically produce above average jumpers.


The free jumping competitions in April are the showcase for three- and four-year-old talents. Since 1997, they have been a fixed date in the calendar of show jumping horse breeders. Numerous careers have already begun in the Niedersachsenhalle.


At the free jumping competition on March, 21, 2021, the young talents showed impressive performances. In the three-year-old class, two young horses were convincing: Cherobino and Cornetta Crisp PJ became champions with the same result. The best four-year-old was Oscar D. "Especially in the four-year-old class we had a strong field with many interesting participants, also from a sport rider's point of view," said Mario Stevens, who judged the Hannoveraner horses together with Thomas Schönig.

One of the first horses to start was Cherobino by Chacfly PS/Sunlight xx (breeder: Egest Thaden, Varel, exhibitor: Ekke and Egest Thaden, Butjadingen), who set the first standards with a score of 26.6. Cornetta Crisp PJ by Cornet Obolensky/Cassini II (breeder and exhibitor: Pferdezucht Dr. Jacobs, Bierbergen) was just as good. The bay followed her sister, Hann.Pr.St. Skippy Jo PJ by Stakkato, who left Verden as the winner five years ago. The 41 representatives of the 2018 vintage competed in three divisions, divided according to performance. The third division was won by a stallion from the Celle State Stud with 26.4 points. The granddam of the bay by Cup Cooper/Cormint (breeder: Alois Naber, Saterland) is the full sibbling of the internationally successful state stud stallion Inliner.

The highest score of the day of 27.7 was achieved by the 2017 born Oscar ‚D by Ogano/Quantus (breeder and exhibitor: Duchac Training Stable, Hann. Münden), who convinced with his nonchalance and his great scope. It was a double victory, also the winner of the second division of the 33 four-year-olds came from the Duchac training stable: Chica Bonita D by Chacoon Blue/Now or Never M, whose score for technique, scope and overall impression/jumping intelligence was 27.1.

Selection Criteria for mares

Accomplishment in the brood mare performance test:
A score of 8 or better in the free jumping and a show jumping breed value of at least 125 points, based on all marks from the mare performance test, is required. If both parents were registered with the Jumper Breeding Program, no additional breed value requirements are requested apart from the free jumping score of at least 8.

Own sport successes:
Five placements in the top five in medium level jumper classes or higher and five placements in the top five in elementary level jumper riding horse classes or higher are required if the mare has only been active in sports until the age of six. Provided the mare qualifies for the Final of the Hanoverian Show Jumping Championships, she is also accepted to participate at the free jumping test.

Successes of progeny:
Min. two progeny have to be successful jumpers. One of these offspring has to be placed in advanced level jumper classes, the other one in medium level jumper classes.

Dams and the right sisters of horses that successfully competed at the international level and that are listed with the rankings of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBFSH) are also entitled to participate. 

Selection Criteria for stallions

  • The assessment of jumping capabilities in the stallion performance test:
    A stallion has to achieve an average score for his jumping capabilities of min. 8.5 and/or a partial show jumping score of min. 125 points resp. a HLP breed value for show jumping of min. 125 points. Apart from that, a corresponding show jumping pedigree is required.
  • Qualification at tournaments with the following performances:
    Five placements in the top three in advanced level jumper classes or
    - with five- and six-year-old stallions successful qualification for the Federal Riding Horse Championships
    - with four-year-old stallions two scores of 8 and better in jumper riding horse classes. This results in a temporary admission, final admission after the successful qualification for the Federal Championships.
  • Through successful progeny: The FN breed values as well as the placements of progeny at the advanced show jumping level will be considered. A breed value from mare performance tests of at least 120 points with min. 15 progeny.

The admission of young stallions for the Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program is temporarily limited. The decision on further admission for three years will be taken if the performances (results from mare performance tests and tournaments) of the first five-year-old progeny are available. Another check of hereditary qualities will then follow, based on the performances of eight-year-old progeny.
