The 2023 WBFSH General Assembly (GA) held in Orlando, Florida, marked the second face-to-face meeting since Covid 19. And for a second time the CWHBA sent a large contingent to participate in the meetings, seminars, and informal gatherings.

The General Assembly was ably hosted by the American Trakehner Association who provided top quality hospitality and timely, informative seminars. The hot weather was both a challenge and a surprise to Canadians who are now moving into winter temperatures at home.
Attendance by WBFSH member studbooks was inline with other years, which is to say it could always be more. CWHBA is one of the smallest studbooks, yet it managed to send five people, one of the largest contingents. Notably, CWHBA has attended every GA since 1995 with one or more people, and would be delighted to see more studbooks follow their lead.

The WBFSH has a hard-working Board and Executive Committee. They are committed to an annual plan that each year encompasses a number of important initiatives designed to serve the common interests of our studbooks and breeders. In order to do this, they need the dialogue and engagement from members. Naturally, a great deal of valuable discussion takes place outside of the formal workshops, and this annual event is a unique opportunity to network, share ideas, and work together for our common interest.
Canadian attendees were Chris Gould, CWHBA representative to the WBFSH; Janice Tyndall, Chair; Victoria Kendall, office administrator;Maria Ardito IYB coordinator; and Rod Jack, Alberta Chapter Board member.. To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
