Ultimate Breeders Warmblood Championships 2019

The busy summer show season for the British Hanoverian Horse Society (BHHS) was concluded on the 7/8th of September with the 2019 Ultimate Breeder’s Warmblood Championship at Moreton Morrell in Warwickshire.

The BHHS Committee was joined by Hans Henning Von Der Decken Chairman of the Hannoveraner Verband for what was a very successful event and the biggest the Society has seen for many years.

The British Hanoverian foal Fürstlich (For Romance x Charmeur x Painted Black), bred by Sandra Biddlecombe and owned by Bill & Janey Hopkins and Sean & Amanda Edmonds, was named this year’s 2019 Supreme Champion.

The show, which was held at Moreton Morrell’s Equestrian Centre in Warwickshire ran for two days from Saturday 7th to Sunday 8th September 2019 and saw a large number of entries from across the UK.

The weekend started with the Mare Performance Test with the British Warmblood mare, Briarwood Firefly, bred by Laura Humphreys and owned by Lucinda Bellis took 1st place and was awarded the Premium Candidate status.

Our 2019 Mare of the Year was awarded to Hanoverian State Premium mare World’s Finest.  Owner of World’s Finest, Judith Davis from Hawtins Stud said “a very personal and special moment for me was the award of Hanoverian mare of the year to State Premium World’s Finest. One of our original foundation mares ‘Wolfie’ is now the mother, grandmother and great grandmother of some of our top horses including Hawtins Floriana, Hawtins Delicato, Hawtins Duchessa and Hawtins San Floriana to name but a few. In 2017 she was the Horse and Hound outstanding mare of the year. At 25 years young she still looks fantastic and I think she really enjoyed her day out.

The show is a great no pressure event for the young horses and by the end of the weekend they have learnt so much which will really benefit them (and us!) in the future. We’re already looking forward to next year’s show.”

The BHHS also held a special presentation to thank one of our long standing Committee Members, Lynne Crowden, who had retired from the Committee earlier this year.  We would like to say a special thank you to Lynne for her exceptional contribution to the Society. The Society has benefitted enormously from Lynne’s knowledge of Hanoverian breeding and her outstanding judging skills have been invaluable to us over many years.

Congratulations to all our competitors, thank you to the Committee for their support and to the volunteers, without whom the show would not take place. Thanks also to the Moreton Morrell Equestrian centre for their venue.

The British Hanoverian Horse Society would like to thank Elite Stallions, Baileys Horse Feeds, Premier Performance CZ, Wheatley Wood Stud, Arenamate for their sponsorship and lovely prizes.
