25 Benefits of 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 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 four Daughter Societies of the Hanoverian Verband throughout the world.
- The HHSA is an innovative society, continually introducing new and more progressive ways to help our members and promote our horses.
- We are responsive to our members needs and welcome all suggestions and comments.
- HHSA registered horses are eligible to compete at the World Young Horse Championships in Europe.
- Each year the HHSA holds an annual assessment tour for stud mares and foals around Australia with a German classifier appointed by the Hannoveraner Verband.
- Access to the Hannoveraner Verband statistics on stallion genetic heritability allows you to breed with knowledge.
- Our website and our Facebook page are a great source of knowledge plus they are constantly updated.

For all our breeders who foals presented on the 2014 tour, your patience is appreciated. We are pleased to report the passports for the branded or eligible for branding Hanoverian foals have left Germany on their way to Australia. The HHSA committee has spent the last 12 months merging with the VIT European database so that HHSA foals receive internationally accepted passports. We expect to have the passports posted out to all of our members within the next few weeks.
Attached is a collection of passports before they were packed by the Verband and sent on their way to Australia.
To everyone who has foals being born and mares being bred, best of luck from the HHSA and we hope your breeding dreams come true. If your foals are born then it is now time to prepare. We recommend you take a look around our website and start to prepare your paperwork for the 2015 tour.
