Successful USA Inspection Tour


From September 27 to October 01, 2022, this year's USA inspection tour with foal inspection, mare registration and stallion approval took place. Breeding director Stephan Haarhoff visited together with Michael Gonell (member of the inspection and approval commission) Prairie Pines Farm, Florida, Hyperion Stud, Virginia and Hidden Pearl Farm, Pennsylvania. At Prairie Pines Farm, they were assisted by Matt Davis, a member of the American Commission. Approximately 60 mares, foals and stallions were presented to the commission for registration and inspection.

We would like to thank all hosts for their hospitality and the great organization of the event!

We would like to show you some first impressions of the inspection tour today. You will find a detailed report about the inspection tour in the December issue of Pferd+Sport.
