The Danish Warmblood Young Breeders are delighted and proud to invite all World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBFSH) member studbooks to enter teams or individuals to participate in the WBFSH International Young Breeders World Championships 2024.

This is scheduled to take place in Denmark from July 4-6, 2024 and, per previous editions, there will be four main elements to the competition phases of the Championships.
These include multiple choice theory exam (topics include reproduction, health and welfare, nutrition, stable management, and sport), assessment of conformation, assessment of athleticism (loose movement and loose jumping), and the presentation of a horse in hand.
Additional Championship elements include turnout (grooming, plaiting, etc.) of a horse, which is completed as a team, and various fun activities hosted in tandem with the serious business of the Championships. The opportunity for competitors to network and socialise is considered a very important aspect of the event with teams historically competing from Europe, Canada, and North America. Coming together from widespread geographical areas, combined with horse interests, means there is always something to talk about and the potential to create new friendships, and unique networking with other young people.

The 2024 World Championships venue?

The 2024 Championships are to be hosted by Stutteri Ask, on the island of Fyn, located centrally in Denmark. The stud provides high-class indoor and outdoor facilities, and all competitors will be hosted on-site for the duration of the competition in ‘mobile home’ accommodation. Catering will be provided by ‘Aulbjerghus-Det Fynske Madhus’ providing meals and snacks for all dietary preferences/requirements. A great atmosphere is virtually guaranteed with everyone gathered on-site together... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
