Two new members
Following the recent Joint meeting with the Board and the Executive Committee in Elmshorn in March 2009, 2 new sport horse studbooks have been granted membership of the WBFSH; Springpferdezuchtverband Oldenburg-International and The Studbook for Slovenian Warmblood Horses. We welcome them dearly, and hope that they too will submit their breeding news and most important calendar items to our press responsible on news@wbfsh.org – thereby making the member studbooks and associates of WBFSH even more visible to the sport horse breeding world. With a total number of 64 members and 3 associates the focus on our common goal – to breed better sport horses – is increased world wide.
