Membership Fees

The Society’s financial year runs from the 1st July to the 30th June. Members may join at any time of the year, however, if presenting horses for classification which is usually held in February, must pay the full year’s fees. Renewal is then required in July. Hanoverian  Breeders membership is necessary under the following circumstances in addition to the conditions in 5a:

  1. Presenting mares for classification and/or performance testing
  2. Registering foals
  3. Presenting colts/stallions for Licensing/Performance Testing
  4. Those wishing to vote at Meetings and/or serve on the Committee

Membership will only be accepted by completing a Society Membership Application and accompanied by the appropriate fees. Members will be accepted on a temporary basis until the application is formally decided on by the Committee.

Members are charged the active fee of $35 for annual mare registration for the financial year following the classification (e.g. classified in February, active fee charged when the accounts are issued in June for the next financial year). This applies to mares having foals by registered Hanoverian stallions in that upcoming season. (e.g.. dues are charged in June for the upcoming year 1st July to 30th June, the mare foals during that period – that mare is considered active.) If the mare is not foaling during that period, she is inactive. Members should advise the Society if this is the case and claim their $25 credit.
