On the following days the final exam (freejumping and performance under the rider) for 3-year-old mares will take place at 9.00 am in Elmshorn (Holsteiner Verbandes, Westerstr. 95, D-25336 Elmshorn):
In spring 2021 the station tests for 3-year-old Holsteiner mares will be carried out in Elmshorn. The mares will be kept at the station for 2 weeks. On the day of delivery the mares have to be ridden in front of the test director by their own rider.
The fees for the entire station test amount to approx. 700 € per mare. This includes all costs (accommodation and care of the mares, riding and examination fees).
The following rounds are planned:
I. round: 09.02. – 23.02.2021
II. round: 28.04. – 12.05.2021
We ask the breeders to register their mares for the station test 2021. Approximately 70 mares can be tested on station.
Any Holsteiner mare (born in 2018) may be entered.
Should you be interested in having your mare undergo performance testing -which is rather important from the breeder’s point of view - you may enter the mare in question by submitting the entry form to the Holsteiner Verband, Abteilung Zucht, Steenbeker Weg 151, 24106 Kiel.
Registration deadline is 09 November 2020. Please adhere to this deadline, as we need to have an overview of the mares entered for performance testing as soon as possible. You will be issued with more information upon registration.
35th MARE PERFORMANCE TEST (1-DAY FIELD TESTS) OF THE YEAR 2021
29. April Elmshorn
05. Mai Elmshorn
23. Juni Elmshorn
Only at the Elmshorn field test on 29 April, the performance tested mares can also be registered into the Holsteiner studbook on the same day. Please state your intention to have your mare studbook-registered when entering your mare for performance testing (https://psvsh.events.idloom.com/stutenleistungspruefung).
The conformation evaluation required for studbook registration takes place at the outside arena (Horstmanns Garten) prior to the free jumping. The height at the withers is measured prior to the in-hand presentation. The mare’s equine passport is also required at this stage.
Submitting the Holsteiner Verband studbook registration (see above) is mandatory also for mares intended for studbook registration during the Elmshorn field test on 22 April 2021.
Holsteiner mares performance tested in Schleswig-Holstein (station or field test) sired by a young stallion (1st or 2nd covering season in 2017) or a Thoroughbred stallion will receive about 500 euros in financial support. Mare owners with a Holsteiner Verband membership will be contacted by the breeding department after the last field test (23.06.2021).
The entry form and the preparation guidelines for the field test in Schleswig-Holstein can be found in the March issue of the association magazine PFERD+SPORT or on the website Landeskommission für Pferdeleistungsprüfungen Schleswig-Holstein.
