German Horse Quality – new seal of approval for horses “made” in Germany

The German horse breeding industry has introduced a new seal of approval: Every passport of a German horse must have a stamp of “German Horse Quality“.

The passport itself has been relaunched. It is no longer pink, but silver. In 2018 the first German Breeding associations have already began introducing the new color design. And now they have added the “German Horse Quality “stamp to identify German bred horses.

Dr. Klaus Miesner, director of the Breeding Division of the German Equestrian Federation (FN), explains that there is a reason for this : The demand of our Breeding associations is to have a common mark, in order to help recognize German horses in other countries.

Goodbye Ramiro B

Ramiro BThe famous sire for Eventing superstars has died at the age of 24 due to acute kidney failure. The stallion’s last home was at the Stallion AI Services in England. There was no more hope for his disease and so the equestrian world has to say goodbye. Since 2011 Ramiro B called the United Kingdom his home and the Irish warmblood has been acknowledged as the best sire of Eventing horses. Currently, his name can be found on the WBFSH rankings on 6th position for eventing stallions.

Among his successful offspring are Cooley Master Class and Cooley SRS, who were introduced to the sport by Oliver Townend. Meanwhile, Cooley SRS has been sold to Australia. However, Townend won the CCI4* last spring in Kentucky with Cooley Master Class.
