The licensing is one of the two necessary prerequisites for a stallion to become fully approved for breeding. The stallions are either licensed in-hand at the age of two-and-a-half or under saddle at the age of three. Evaluation criteria are conformation, basic gaits and scope.
Stallion book Ib
Stallions with outstanding performance can also be entered without being licensed by the Hannoveraner Verband. You will find the prerequisites in the Breeding Program for the Hannoveraner horse. When using a stallion, which is entered in the stallion book Ib, the breeder of the foal has to pay an additional fee of 100 €uro as the stallion owner is not liable to pay contributions. Here you will find the list of dressage stallions and of the jumping stallions, which have already been entered in the stallion book Ib.This list includes only stallions for which an application for entry in the stallion book Ib has been submitted by a breeder who wishes to use this stallion. Although this list is updated regularly, it will never be completed, because new stallions will meet the requirements for being entered.
