Howard Rose

The British Hanoverian Horse Society (BHHS) is very sad to announce the death of one of our founders, Mr Howard Rose.

Howard was one of the original members of the BHHS nearly 30 years ago and initially brought the Stallion Wineberg to the UK. In the early days, Howard, supported by the BHHS Committee, was joined by Dr Ludwig Christmann from the Hannoveraner Verband and they travelled the UK grading mares and branding foals.

British Hanoverian Horse Society Annual Show 2018

The busy summer show season for the British Hanoverian Horse Society (BHHS) was concluded on the last week of September with the 2018 Annual Show at Keysoe.

The BHHS Committee was joined by Dr Schade from the Hannoveraner Verband for what was a very successful event.

The Rhineland mare Sezuki (Sezuan x Sherlock Holmes x Consul), bred by Christian Heinrich owned by Sandy Senior of Glossoms Stud, was named as this year’s Supreme Champion.

Statement from the Board of the Hannoveraner Verband regarding WFFS

A few days ago the board of the Hanoverian Association passed the following resolution regarding WFFS in stallions:

1. Stallions newly presented for licensing are required to be tested for WFFS as of the passing of the resolution. The result of this test must be attached to the registration for the licensing. For young stallions pre-selected for the main licensing in October, it is sufficient to provide proof of the WFFS test after admission.

Samba Hit III

British Rhineland's would like to welcome Samba Hit III who is now standing at Witcham Farm Stud

Samba Hit III is a stallion of truly outstanding quality, demonstrated by his score of 9.0 at the 30-day stallion performance test. This stallion has magnificent temperament and his potential is further enhanced by the quality of his paces, his phenomenal ground covering walk, his balance and the cadence of his trot and the rhythmical uphill canter, along with his amazing ability to collect.
