The Schleswig-Holstein mare inspections with the selection for the Verband mare show are held in May (10.05. - 26.05.2021).

All mares to be inspected for studbook registration must be entered in writing! The closing date for registration is 19 March 2021. The Kiel office should have received the application forms by this date to avoid delays in printing the catalogue. In order to set up a proper time schedule for the mare owners to follow, we depend on your support and timely registration.

The Verband mare show is held on Sunday, 13 June 2021, at the Elmshorn facility. To qualify for the Verband mare show, a 3-year-old mare must fulfil the pedigree requirements on a stallion dam and receive at least 52 points at inspection.

Important information for members outside Schleswig-Holstein: 3-year-old mares aiming to qualify for the Verband mare show and State premium awards must be presented at the qualifying outside members inspection site on 10 May 2021 at Elmshorn.

In Germany, the main registration tour (mare inspections and foal registration) takes place between mid-June and mid-July. An additional tour will be arranged between mid-August and October. Other inspection and registration sites outside Germany may be arranged as the need arises until late May. To do so, please call Ms Dr. Stefanie Bergmann at the Holsteiner Verband office (0049-431-305996-51) or send an email to:
