On the final day of the WBFSH General Assembly, hosted by the Swiss Warmblood Studbook (ZVCH) in Geneva, Switzerland, outgoing president Jan Pedersen, who has served for the past 18 years, was elected for another three-year term. The event hosted an interesting programme which included various seminars, workshops and discussions, as well as attending classes at the CHI Geneva which concluded last Sunday. Jan Pedersen took the opportunity to present representatives of the winning studbooks with diplomas for their extraordinary achievement in the WBFSH-Rolex Studbook Rankings 2016 in showjumping (Holsteiner), dressage (Hanoverian) and eventing (Irish Sport Horse). A full report of the WBFSH GA will be published in the January issue of Breeding News.

We extend our warmest congratulations to Jan Pedersen, as well as to all the winning breeders and studbooks that were awarded in Geneva.
