Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program

Hanoverian_Breeding_Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program_PHS

The Hanoverian 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.

Free jumping competition

The free jumping competitions of the Hanoverian jumper breeding programme are the showcase of the three- and four-year-old talents and became a meeting point of breeders of show jumping horses. Many great carreers of international show jumpers started in the Niedersachsenhalle in Verden.

Dam and sire of the participants must be registered in the Hanoverian jumper breeding programm. Two successful show jumping riders and trainers will judge the young horses.


It was the 22nd time that young Hanoverian horses competed in the free jumping competitions of the Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program in Verden. Coolberry PJ by Colman/Quidam de Revel became best three-year-old jumper. The Viscount/Stakkato-daughter Valery headed the field of four-year-olds. The pedigrees featured many internationally well-known stallion names. “There are meanwhile many excellent show jumping lines in Hanover,” said Jörg Münzner. He judged the 50 three-and 23 four-year-olds in four divisions with Thomas Schönig.


The three-year-old Coolberry PJ by Colman/Quidam de Revel (breeder and exhibitor: Pferdezucht Dr. Jacobs GbR, Bierbergen) scored 27, the highest mark of the day. Her dam, St.Pr.St. Queensberry, had also already earned a high placement at the free jumping competition and is meanwhile successfully competing at the advanced level.  This performance was rewarded with a special prize, a free breeding voucher of Klosterhof Medingen for the young show jumping stallion Karajan. Coolberry PJ showed up in the third division. Pferdezucht Dr. Jacobs GbR already celebrated a victory in the second division: Ladylike PJ by Numero Uno/Silvio scored 26.4 points. A Colestus/Clinton-son (breeder and exhibitor: Marius Rittstieg, Seeburg) won this division with a final score of 26.


Three horses dominated the age-group, born in 2014. The Viscount/Stakkato-daughter Valery (breeder and exhibitor: Eckhard Kordes, Velpke) scored a class victory with 26.2 points. The breeder was rewarded with a voucher by the Celle State Stud for the state stud stallion and Stakkato-Prize-winner Viscerado. The four-year-olds were pretty close together, with only shades deciding on victory. Two mares were nominated vice champion. Hanoverian premium candidate Celebration by Commissario/Silvo (breeder and exhibitor: Peter Mahler, Neuhaus/Oste) and Everton PJ by Embassy/Light On (breeder and exhibitor: Pferdezucht Dr. Jacobs GbR, Bierbergen) finished second. „Scope was finally the decisive factor,“ said Jörg Münzner.

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.
