The North American Studbook has been busy this summer traveling to China, hosting inspections, and finalizing passports for current and future members. While in China, director Jean-Yves Tola met with Yi Zhang, owner ofCajero Equestrian and Equine – a very successful trip with the highlight being the approval of five stallions.

The stallions ranged from four- to 11-years-old, with three sired by their flagship stallion Cajero (Comeback II - Laerke x Limebrand) and the other two by Londontime and Dortmund HS, respectively. With a thriving jumping and dressage program, the development of this relationship and the breeding program at Cajero will be exciting to watch in the years to come.

The NAS hosted an inspection in Bellevue, NE at Phoenix Equestrian Center. There they approved Derringer  (Lieutenant Kije - Solar Missy xx x Solar City xx), a 2008 NAS-registered stallion. Owned and ridden by Janine Weatherby, he is successfully competing in Grand Prix classes and hunter derbies on the West Coast.
NAS also hosted an inspection at Spy Coast Farm for the second year in a row. Judge Jos Sevriens was extremely impressed with the quality of foals presented and all received either first or second premium status. Q Big Wish (Big Star - Wish x Numero Uno), a 2016 BWP/NAD stallion, was awarded premium status and approved into the ‘provisional book’. He was noted for his well-balanced conformation, good reflexes and technique in the jump chute, as well as his engagement and impulsion through all three gaits. He is owned and was bred by Patti Springsteen.
NAS is in the final stages of production of passports for the registry. They will be available for purchase for all currently registered horses in the coming months. The development of passports further demonstrates NAS’s dedication to North American Warmblood breeders, owners, and riders. n
