After having passed the performance requirements a stallion is, however, not automatically entered into the Hanoverian stallion-book. This is not effected until an explicit written application is made by the owner of the stallion.
Each owner of a stallion must know that this application has to be made annually. Thus, the recognition is valid only for the breeding season indicated. Therefore the office must be informed of each change of breeding station. The recognition involves a fee which has to be paid annually after having received the invoice.
After having met all of these requirements within the time allowed, the owner of a stallion receives a breeding list in early spring. In this list all covered mares of which the foals shall be branded Hanoverian must be registered. Moreover, the owner of the stallion gathers the cover certificates for each covered mare. After the end of the breeding season - by October 31 at the latest - he sends the breeding list and the cover certificates to the Society's office.
Adding the application for the next season to it is appropriate.
Please also see registration conditions for stallions under the Breeding Rules for more information.
Stallions based in the UK must be registered with the BHHS. Please use the membership and registration form that can be found on this site.
