Licensing in Holstein

Hengstkörung

Stallion licensing in Holstein

The licensing is the most important selection step for young stallions. The colts are stallion graded either in-hand at two-and-a-half years or under the rider at 3-yr-old and older (April grading).

The autumn grading of the colts is the breeding year’s major event. In Holstein, this event has been held at the Neumünster Holstenhalls for well above 30 years. At the Elmshorn grading sites held in January and April, older stallions are admitted, as well.

During the summer months June and July, the colts are presented for pre-selection to the stallion grading held at Neumünster in the end of October. There is no pre-selection for the Elmshorn grading sites. At least three members of the grading committee judge the colts at the pre-selection and the grading. In order to succeed at the stallion grading, they have to convince the panel in terms of conformation, movement and jumping ability.

Stallion Licensing

Young Stallion Licensing in November

To register for the preselection of young stallions, a written application must be submitted to the Kiel Breeding Office by the end of June for the licensing event in early November.

Application for Stallion Licensing in November

2.5-year-old Holsteiner colts must be registered by using the application form.

Application for pre-selection of colts 2020

Do not submit any registration papers/equine passports yet!

In case you wish to enter several colts, use a separate form for each horse (print copies or request additional forms from the Kiel office).

IMPORTANT: Your information will be used when compiling the stallion grading catalogue later. The application form must be completed in full and submitted to the Holsteiner Verband Kiel office by 17 July 2020.

Colts are pre-selected from 07 - 11 September and from 14 - 16 September at Elmshorn. The stallion producers will be given the exact date when calling in to confirm the entry.

The application fee per colt is € 100 for Holsteiner Verband members and € 200 for non-members. Applications submitted after the due date incur a € 50 late fee per colt.

Deadline:

The application form must be submitted to the Kiel office by 17 July 2020

Mailing address: Verband der Züchter des Holsteiner Pferdes e.V., Steenbeker Weg 151, 24106 Kiel, Fax: +49 431-336142, email: mathiszyk@holsteiner-verband.de

Same as last year, stallion producers are requested to call in to confirm their entry some days prior to the pre-selection. The stallion owners/producers will receive more detailed information and instructions after the closing date.

Please take care to observe this rule!

Pre-selection schedule:

  1. in-hand presentation (bridled) on hard surface
  2. presentation at liberty and free-jumping (indoor arena)
  3. After the pre-selection, the stallion producers will be sent a decision letter. Then the auction conditions have to be agreed upon, as well.

Dressage oriented colts:

When selecting the colts for Neumünster, we again want to give some special attention to dressage oriented colts:

- A dressage expert will advise the selection panel during one of the later dates.

- Dressage oriented colts should be presented on that day.

- Dressage oriented colts already presented at an earlier date will be suggested for reassessment on that given date by the selection panel.

Stallion Licensing

Licensing in January

The stallion grading and stallion book registration is held at the Holsteiner Verband Elmshorn facility (Westerstr. 93, 25336 Elmshorn) on 7 January 2020 (10 o'clock).

Application for Stallion Licensing in January

The stallion licensing and stallion book registration is held on 7 January 2020 at the Elmhorn Holsteiner Verband facility. At the licensing, the stallion entered for grading will also be shown under saddle. Young stallions who will be 3 years old in 2020 will not be shown under the rider at this date. At this date, they will be judged exclusively by hand. Stallion owners who wish to present their 3-year-old stallion under the rider will be given the opportunity to do so at an extra appointment in mid-April.

A prerequisite for the admission of all stallions is proof of the absence of EVA as well as a test for WFFS. The easiest way to order the WFFS test is directly through our association, a positive result is not a reason for exclusion.
