Matamata Vet Services (MVS) Equibreed Hanoverian Inspection Tour 2024

The committee of the N Z Hanoverian Society would like to formally thank MVS Equibreed for their outstanding contribution to the highly successful recent tour of the commission lead by Katy Holder-Vale, representing the German Hanoverian Society.
During the two week tour, which travelled from Kaitaia to south Christchurch, and all places in between, the commission inspected 60 plus jumping and dressage bred foals, two potential stallions and 30 mares were accepted into the Studbooks – congratulations to these owners and breeders.
MVSEquibreed branded sashes were presented to Premium mares and foals who achieved Gold or Silver status in the course of their evaluation for conformation and movement.
The committee would also like to warmly thank members across New Zealand who provided accommodation, transportation, arranged local tours and in many cases, yummy food!
The sponsorship from MVS Equibreed not only assists with the funding of the tour, but in many cases they have been responsible for the successful breeding of a number of the foals, being specialists in all levels of equine fertility.
