With the studbook Holstein Global the Holsteiner Verband has extended the range of the breeding programme to allow breeders with outside-blood horses access to Holsteiner breeding.

 The new studbook Holstein Global is on a par with the traditional Holsteiner studbook, so non-Holsteiner mares as well as stallions and their offspring may be bred within the Holsteiner breeding programme in various combinations.



At the delegate assembly held on 11 December 2018, the delegates agreed upon the amendments to the Holsteiner Verband articles establishing for the extension of the new studbook Holstein Global.

Upon application, any at least 3-year-old stallion may be registered into the studbook Holstein Global for stallions provided that he has been approved by and registered with one of the WBFSH affiliated breed societies listed in the articles of the Holsteiner Verband and has documentation of stallion performance testing results.


To check if your mare or stallion qualify for entry into the Holstein Global studbook, send a copy of the registration papers to the Holsteiner Verband office in Kiel:
