      • If you are voting for your studbook, please complete and return the Vote Authorisation form. Please indicate also if you are voting on behalf of a studbook that is not able to attend in person.
      • If your studbook will not be represented in person at the GA, but you nominate another studbook to vote as your proxy, please complete and return the Proxy sheet.
      • Please note: The calculations for assigning a weighted vote to each studbook are based on a three year average of the foal registration numbers in your country. If there are statistics missing, this will negatively influence your studbook’s allocated vote. Statistics that have been incorrectly completed on the annual report forms cannot be used (calculations are made with whole numbers only, rounding to the nearest place is permitted if exact numbers are not known)


The WBFSH website will be continuously updated over the coming weeks with information pertaining to the general assembly. Please check back regularly to make sure you do not miss any information.
