In 1922, the Hannoveraner Verband was founded by the breeders’ association. This created the prerequisite for a central and uniform registration and processing of all breeding procedures.
The Hanoverian Association has its headquarters in Verden. The Hannoveraner Verband also includes the local horse breeding clubs, which play an important role.
The horse breeding clubs are the direct contact between the association and its breeders, and they organize breeding events such as mare shows. In addition, each club has its young breeders, who are trained by youth speakers and can also qualify for larger competitions and team selection. Young breeders are between eight and 25 years old.
