During the last weekend of October, the Hannoveraner Verband will open its doors for the annual stallion licensing and sales. From Wednesday, October 24 to Friday, October 26, around 100 highly talented young stallions from the best bloodlines will be competing for the sought-after positive licensing decision in the Niedersachsenhalle. Subsequently, licensed and non-licensed young talents will find new owners at the stallion sales on Saturday, October 27. The young stallions of the 2016 generation are not only highly interesting as future sires, but quite a few international sporting careers began at the licensing.

On Friday, the free presentation of dressage stallions will start at 9:00 a.m. followed by the announcement of licensing results. The jumping stallions will take the limelight with their free jumping at 2:00 p.m.

Saturday's programme will pay tribute to the premium stallions and proclaim the 2018 'Stallion of the Year'. The auction will begin at 2:00 p.m.
