Breeding Season 2021: Start of Young Stallions’ Service

The German horse breeding associations have decided by a vast majority for a provisional 2021 registration of German riding horse stallions without proof of obligatory stallion performance testing into stallion book I. The reason for this is the cancellation of all horse shows and clinics organized by regional associations with stabling and accommodation and all stallion performance tests until 11 April by the German Equestrian federation, in agreement with the responsible sport and breed associations due to the outbreak of equine herpes virus (EHV-1).

Of course this also impacts the start of the breeding season of our young stallions:
Cahil, Cardentos, Charaktervoll, Dubliner, United Way and Vigado are available as of now; however, with Cardentos being produced for competition at the stable of his owners, the Witt family of Wellinghusen this year, his semen is only available for shipping within Germany.
Because of the current herpes situation stallions previously stabled off site or at their owners’ facilities for training or preparation purposes will be stabled at Elmshorn already from 30 March onwards. They move into their quarantine stalls and are available for breeding as soon as the necessary examinations have been carried out.

Cahil, Dubliner and United Way are expected to undergo sport testing in Verden from 19-21 April. The three-year-old stallions stood by the Holsteiner Verband stallion keeping GmbH will complete their still outstanding 14-day tests in autumn 2021.
