Start of great careers

On Wednesday, March 30, the Niedersachsenhalle in Verden will be the venue for outstanding show jumping talents by Hannoveraner Verband

Bologna, March 25, 2022 – On Wednesday, March 30, it is that great time again. Then the Niedersachsenhalle in Verden will be the venue for outstanding show jumping talents. 63 three-year olds and 33 four-year olds with top-class pedigrees and excellent dam lines will compete in the free jumping competition of the Hannoveraner Show Jumping Breeding Programme.

The great talents will be judged by the successful show jumper and trainer Lars Meyer zu Bexten and by breeding director Ulrich Hahne and trainer Thomas Schönig. From 9 a.m. CET the exciting event will be broadcast live on the internet by Hannoveraner TV.

Exactly 25 years ago, the first free jumping competition took place in Verden. In 1997 it was Adlantus As who left the Niedersachsenhalle as the winner and later participated in the World Equestrian Games in Jerez de la Frontera with Germany’s Lars Nieberg.

Since then, numerous Hannoveraner who made their first public appearance at the free jumping competition have been part of one of the collections at the Verden auctions and have gone on to have international careers.

In addition to the coveted winner’s sashes as well as cash and honorary prizes, the exhibitors of the two champions will receive vouchers for inseminations by highly interesting, modern show jumping sires from the Celle State Stud and Stutteri Ask. In addition to technique and scope, the jumping intelligence is also evaluated in the free jumping competition.

These characteristics, combined with the up-to-date sires, many of whom have been successful in international sport, and valuable dam lines, are the hallmarks of the modern Hannoveraner show jumper. The horses will be commented individually by the judges.
