Annual National Tour 2018

2018 NATIONAL TOUR – our classifier

The classifier for 2018 is Katy Holder-Vale from Great Britain.

Katy has been breeding Hanoverians for over 30 years and has been a judge for the British Equestrian Federation Futurity evaluations for 10 years. Katy currently stands 2 stallions along with 9 broodmares at Witcham House Farm. For the last 28 years, Katy has been on the British Hanoverian committee and for the last six years, has taken the role of Chairman. In 1998, Katy qualified as a judge in Germany, having judged foals, mares, mare performance tests and stallion licensing.

Our National Tour will commence in mid February 2018 and travel around Australia over a 3 week period. In order to make the foal registration process a little easier now is the time to make sure you have your service certificate ready. Not sure what to do – just send an email so that we can enlighten you.

As your foals are born please go online to nominate your foal or mare for the tour. Please note that we do not accept nominations for the tour by phone, email or text message.

Hello Friends,

For those  who are not aware, the recent AGM saw myself elected as President and Janette Lewis has moved into the role as Registrar.  We look forward to having Janette’s continued input.  I am sure I will be calling her on many occasions!!   Further information regarding the new committee can be found here on our website:

Moving on,  it’s getting to that time of the year again when our members need to be giving  consideration to the upcoming tour, presently scheduled for mid-February to early March 2018. Information about our classifier Katy Holder-Vale can be found below.  Getting your paperwork in early really assists us with the tour organisation. Please use our online portal to complete your Foal Registrations and to renew your Membership:     This is the preferred method for completion and increases accuracy of processing.

There is additional information below to help keep you abreast of what’s new and happening within the HHSA.  We are interested in new ideas from our members and welcome your constructive feedback.   There are often many jobs that need to be done to keep the HHSA running smoothly. Remember you don’t have to be on the Committee to offer to help out.  Please feel free to contact myself or any of the committee to see where you can be of assistance.
