Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it�s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users� profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses � Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it�s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who�s selling it, it doesn�t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions � Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services � Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products � While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements � Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be �bumped� excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues � Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators� discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the �alert� button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your �Ignore� list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you�d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.

Hanoverian Registration

  • Hanoverian Registration

    I'm hoping to cross a KWPN mare with a Hanoverian stallion. He's not approved for Dutch so I'd like to register the future foal as a Hanoverian. I've been on the American Hanoverian Society site and I'm super confused about the registration process. The mare is Dutch, the stallion has passed and I don't know if he was Elite status or not. Is there someone here with experience or advice who can help? Thanks!

    You would need to bring the mare to a Hano inspection to get her approved.

    You should also be able to register it KWPN, would just get Register A instead of Foal book. (Unless the stallion had a performance record that would allow for foal book reg.)

      You most likely need to have the mare inspected by the AHS. Don't worry about the status of the stallion -- all Hanoverian licensed stallions are given the title "Elite". Outside mares (i.e., your KWPN mare) need to score a 7.0 or greater at their inspection to be included into the AHS Main Mare Book.

        I bred my KWPN mare to a Hanoverian-approved stallion a few years ago. First, I had to send them a copy of her papers, and they approved her bloodlines, and said she was eligible for inspection. Then I took the mare to an AHS inspection where she, as Bent Hickory said, needed higher scores (than a comparable AHS-registered mare) to be approved into the mare book. Once she was approved for breeding w/ AHS, I brought her and her filly to the AHS inspection the following year, where the filly was approved and branded/registered Hanoverian.

        You can try to have the mare approved at the same inspection where you take the foal, but of course there's an element of risk to that. This year, with many inspections being cancelled or rescheduled, however, it might be easier to do them together so it doesn't put you a year behind. If the mare is already in foal, I believe AHS said 2020 foals out of not-yet-approved mares were still eligible for registration, due to the covid restrictions/situation. However, this is a 2020-only exception to policy.

          Yes, the AHS tends to take a more restrictive view when it comes to accepting outside blood. Most outside mares require a 7.0 to be entered into the Hanoverian main studbook. This 7.0 is the threshold for Hanoverian mares to be considered for now what is referred to as Hanoverian Premium Mares (formerly, Elite Mares). In essence, the outside mares must meet the AHS's "premium" standard before they are accepted into the Hanoverian breeding program.

          There really isn't a process for "approving a foal." If the mare is Hanoverian approved and the sire is Hanoverian approved, then the foal will automatically be able to receive Hanoverian papers, even without inspection. In fact, foal registration can be handled entirely via mail.

          This COVID-19 provision only applies to foals out of Hanoverian-papered, but as of yet, uninspected mares for their 2020 foals. This would not apply to outside mares (e.g., TB mares, KWPN mares, GOV mares, etc.). Outside mares would still need to be inspected before their 2020 foals could be registered.

            Is the inspection absolutely necessary? I can't see being able to take her to an inspection before she's bred given the COVID restrictions and cancellations. I don't think the foal would be able to apply for KWPN as they are also super strict about allowing in outside blood as well. Additionally, the stallion isn't approved for KWPN so I'm not sure it would be so easy. Their website is also useless for finding out helpful information. Why is it so hard to register a cross?

              Because the stud book is maintaining the quality of registered animals, which is what gives the stud book its value. Frustrating for you, you know your mare and like her enough to breed her, but any future purchaser of the colt is looking for a horse that is bred to have a better chance at doing a job well because it has generations of known, selective breeding behind it. Although most WB breeds seem to be converging, using the same stallions, Dutch breeding is still different from Hannovarian.

                If the stallion is approved Hano, and the mare is KWPN, you can register the resulting foal in the KWPN register A book by mail with no inspection needed (and the 2020 KWPN tour is cancelled anyway). KWPN has become a lot more accepting of outside blood in the last five years, assuming it’s registered with an erkend registry. Drew in the KWPN office is fantastic and can help you, but response times may be slower due to covid.

                  Willesdon I understand wanting to maintain integrity of a breed but it seems like these days they are mixing all kinds of stuff. I've seen Hano lines that have other stuff mixed in and it's a non-issue. I'm extremely unlikely to sell this baby but that doesn't mean I don't want to have it registered. My current horse is registered BWP but he is ALL Hanoverian. His mama wasn't registered but others were in that line. I'm guessing he dropped in Belgium and that's why he's BWP. I don't know enough about breeding and registration to know all the ins and out.

                  Anne Thank you! I will reach out to the KWPN people and see if I can get some guidance.

                    You don't need to have the mare inspected by the AHS before breeding her. You can present the mare next year with the foal at her side. Doing so is always a risk as foaling and nursing can be tough on a mare's condition. And the mare might be tense with her foal in unfamiliar surroundings. But it is possible and many mare owners elect this route every year.

                      Bent Hickory I'm wondering if that's still possible when we're doing embryo transfer... She's an older maiden mare and getting over a sprained ankle so we were thinking embryo transfer for her own health.

                        You're way over thinking this. It really is this simple -- the AHS will register foals by a Hanoverian-approved stallion and out of a Hanoverian-approved mare. As of yet, your KWPN mare isn't Hanoverian-approved. Get her inspected/approved whenever you like, now, next year, ten years from now, and the foal/horse will be eligible to receive Hanoverian registration papers.

                            From KWPN-NA Website (on homepage, under the Breeding heading): The list of Erkend studbooks has been expanded from the best 17 WBFSH member studbooks to ALL warmblood horse studbooks that are full members of the WBFSH. Some still have restrictions.

                            Horses registered with studbooks that are either not full WBFSH members or do not have a European parent studbook with a breeding goal that matches that of the KWPN will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Please visit the WBFSH website to get a complete listing.

                            Erkend stallions must pass the same veterinary exams as KWPN Approved stallions (radiographs, endoscopic exam and semen evaluation) and must have Grand Prix sport records. The KWPN will determine whether to accept outside stallions for KWPN breeding.


                            If the stallion you want to use is approved by either AHS or the German Hanoverian Verband, you can get Register A Papers--Register A papers are sufficient to present the resulting foal for Studbook approval at age 3 or after.

                            If the stallion himself is considered Erkend as described above, the resulting foal can get Foalbook papers, which is what horses who are from KWPN mare & Stallion get. These are also eligible to be presented at age 3 for Studbook.

                            In your situation, there's not really a downside to going with KWPN, no one looks askance at Register A Foals. The downside of going Hano is having to get the mare inspected.
