Having grown into an International organisation with 75 studbook members worldwide, and a network representing approximately 150.000 breeders, the WBFSH celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. It was a privilege for the WBFSH to be able to mark this occasion in Saumur, with the continued and unwavering support of HRH The Princess Benedikte.


To add to the festivities, the WBFSH, its members and new WBFSH partner LONGINES wished to pay tribute to its Patron The Princess, who celebrated her 75th birthday in April. WBFSH President Jan Pedersen, together with Longines Vice President of Marketing, Mr Matthieu Baumgartner, took the opportunity to gift the Princess with a Longines watch.


The new partners, LONGINES and WBFSH will be co-hosting the LONGINES WBFSH Breeder Awards in Lyon at the Equita Lyon next month to honour the world’s best breeders in the disciplines of dressage, jumping and eventing.
