Why Join The Hanoverian Horse Society of Australia inc.


  • The Hanoverian Horse Society of Australia (HHSA) is an internationally recognized Breed Society, not just a national registering body.
  • From 2014 all foals registered with the HHSA will be issued with passports created from the database of the Hannoveraner Verband in Germany.
  • The HHSA is a member of the World Breeding Federation of Sport Horses.The WBFSH is the only international federation of studbooks for sport horses in the world and is the major connection between the breeding organisations of sport horses and the international equestrian sport (FEI).
  • We follow ‘quality controlled’ breeding guidelines set down by the Hanoverian Verband. This ‘quality control’ makes the Hanoverian the breed of choice for many riders throughout the world.
  • The choice of stallions available to HHSA members incorporates all licensed and performance tested Hanoverian stallions throughout the world PLUS all stallions from other Warmblood studbooks that are approved for ‘Hannover’.
  • The HHSA allocates every registered horse with a Universal Equine Life Number (UELN). The aim of this UELN is to ensure that each horse in the world can be identified via this one unique number.
  • The Hanoverian breed was developed more than 270 years ago.
  • The Hannoveraner Verband has been a Breeding Society for more than 120 years.
  • On an international level, we are one of only six Daughter Societies of the Hanoverian Verband throughout the world.

SPH W Dante

FEI World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses

We are pleased to support the first Australian bred Hanoverian Registered Gelding SPH W Dante who will compete at this week’s FEI World Breeding Championships for Young Dressage Horses in the 6 yo Division in Verden Germany.   SPH W Dante (Welfenadel (imp) x Donna Carina (imp)) was breed by his owner Andrea Beatty from Saffron Performance Horses in Arcadia NSW Australia.

SPH W Dante had great success in Young Horse Classes in Australia with his rider Rodney  Martin, winning many major championships. These include the HHSA sponsored Sydney CDI *** in 2012 & 2013. In Melbourne at Dressage and Jumping with the Stars SPH W Dante completed a record trifecta winning the 4, 5 and 6 year old Championship Young Horse title in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

The HHSA would like to take this opportunity to wish SPH W Dante, Andrea Beatty and their connections every success. We will be closely following your progress and cheering from Australia.
