2021 Foal Assessment Video

Reminder to get your Hanoverian and Rhineland foal registration and video classifications in!

Here is an excellent example of a foal Assessment video

If you are not certain that the pedigree of your foal is acceptable then please call or email the Registrar to check. To nominate your foal click this link:
If your foal/s are already born then please do your online form as soon as possible. 

a. Branding by a HHSA representative may not be possible in 2021 so it is recommended that you have your foal microchipped. Many of our breeders are choosing to microchip all foals. 
b. Foals must be named when you do the online form.
c. It is also appreciated if you have obtained your Service Certificate from the semen supplier. Every foal registered through the HHSA requires a Service Certificate. The process is: 
Have your veterinarian fill in and sign an Artificial Insemination Form. Here is the link: http://www.hanoverian.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/AI_Certificate.pdf
Send the completed form to whoever sold you the semen. The semen supplier then supplies the Service Certificate. The service certificate should be uploaded to the application for foal registration.

We understand that foals will not walk or trot in straight lines or stand square on command.
Try your best to include:
Both side views of all four limbs, knees and hocks downwards, front view and  hind view of all four limbs, knees and hocks downwards. 
Foal walking away on level surface and foal walking towards on level surface plus side view of foal walking.
Foal trotting away on level surface and foal trotting towards on level surface plus side view of foal trotting.
The name and pedigree of your foal must also be included.


Videos for both mares and foals must be submitted by the 15th March 2021.

Video editing apps such as Vimeo or Splice can be used to assist in removing unwanted sections of your footage.

  1. Do the online form Application for Mare Classification or Foal Registration. Ensure you are a financial breeder member. Create your videos using the guidelines provided. Every effort will be made to use the videos that are submitted; however, they can be rejected for poor lighting, angles that do not adequately show the horse or other technical difficulty. No longer than 5 minutes per horse/foal. Be sure you name your video with the full name of the horse/foal including prefix/suffix and not a stable name or abbreviation.
  2. Submit your videos through the following methods:
  • Upload to Vimeo or Youtube and send the link via email to hanoverian@hanoverian.org.au
  • Mail a USB to the Registrar – Janette Lewis 303 Tallegalla Rd Tallegalla QLD 4340

2021 Mare Classification Video

This year mare classifications will be done mainly (if not all) by video. This classification allows your mare, if she qualifies, to enter the Hanoverian or Rhineland studbook.
If you have a 3yo or older mare that was registered Hanoverian as a foal, she will need to be classified into the Main Studbook so her foals can be registered as Hanoverian.
If you have a mare that is registered with another approved society (such as Anglo, Thoroughbred, AWHA, etc) but qualifies to be approved Hanoverian or Rhineland, the mare classification is what you need to do in order to register her foals as Hanoverian or Rhineland.
Additionally, if you have a mare that was never registered as a foal, but her dam and sire are Hanoverian or Rhineland, you can also complete the registration and mare classification to enter her into the appropriate studbook.

Please find the video format for Mare Classification here. There are further instructions in the video description.

The Application for mare classification through the HHSA can be found here

If you have any questions as to if your mare is eligible, please contact the registrar janette.lewis@live.com.au.

2021 National Tour Update

It is happening!!! 2020 has shown we need to adapt to everything that COVID throws at us and this will include the 2021 National Tour. International travel is impossible but once again the Verband is assisting, however the format of our tour will be different in 2021. German classifiers will be reviewing endless videos of mares and foals.

Foals can be registered in the following methods:

  • If your mare is already classified then simply fill in Application for Foal Registration online and we will post out a DNA pack and marking sheet for your vet to fill in. 
  • As above, but also video your foal so it can be judged for gold and silver awards.
  • Attend a venue where HHSA representatives can assist with video, taking DNA and doing markings and branding. No scores will be given on the day.

    Mares can be classified in the following methods:
  • Follow the instructions and submit a video of your mare. Your mare will then be assessed by a classifier panel. 
  • Attend a central venue where HHSA classifier is present and a HHSA
    representative is there to assist with video. Your mare will also be assessed by the classifier panel. No scores will be given on the day.
