At a Delegates’ Assembly on August 24, 2020, the Hannoveraner Verband elected a new president: Dr. Hinni Lührs-Behnke (48), who said “The breeders are the heart of the association.” Ernestine Zwingmann from Lindwedel became chairwoman of the newly created supervisory board.
It was a delegates' meeting that will go down in the history of the Hannoveraner Verband, because in many areas a course will be set anew after the structural reform decided last February. Following this structural reform, numerous association committees were newly created. In the nine-and-a-half-hour marathon sitting in the Niedersachsenhalle, Carsten Leopold, Bassum, was elected deputy president. He had previously been elected to the four-member presidium for the areas of finance, law and personnel. Harald Thelker, Venne, was elected for the field of loyalty to/of breeders, while Matthias Klatt, Hahausen, will take over dressage within the presidium, and jumping will be managed by Hergen Forkert. The delegates also elected Dieter Meyer, Verden, for the marketing division.
Alongside Chairwoman Ernestine Zwingmann, further members of the five-member supervisory board, whose main tasks are to advise and supervise the presidium, will be Hendrik Hüsker, Syke-Wachendorf, as deputy chairman, as well as Matthias Bug, Petersberg, Achim Schacke, Wittingen, and Matthias Grupe, Groß Sisbeck.
Stefan Blanken, Hepstedt, and Anja Rietbrock, Sottrum, were elected to the Dressage Breeding Committee. Heide Peters, Hammah, and Oliver Ross, Thedinghausen, form the Showjumping Breeding Committee, while Iris Schless, Kevelaer, and Ulrike Edel-Heidhues, Bad Harzburg, focus on eventing. Last but not least, the delegates elected Norbert Bramlage, Dinklage, as Good Governance Officer. The chairmen of the district associations are still part of the committees. The newly elected presidium and committees will take up their work when the changes to the statutes that have become necessary for the structural reform have been confirmed by the responsible district court...
