Spring stallion selection and Open Days at Zangersheide


The Open Days of Zangersheide, for an open view and a fair assessment. In the past few years we see a growing number of Z horses jumping into the prizes and that is thanks to our breeders. It also shows that our breeders made the right decisions in the past and we are convinced that this will not be different this time.

With our Open Days and stallion presentation we want to expand your knowledge. You will probably wait with choosing a stallion until after our show. And you are right, because also this year we offer you an elite group of stallions. We do not pretend to know it all, but we do want to share our know how with you, since we have the same objective.

The Open Days are more than just a stallion show. In that weekend our doors are wide open because we also believe that service is important and because we want to offer our breeders quality in every aspect.

Like last year we organise guided tours during which our professional team will be happy to answer all your questions extensively. Studbook Zangersheide is there for everyone, for every breeder, for every licensed stallion, no matter from which studbook. Our policy of openness does not only apply for our stallion assortment, but above all for every breeder. Only the best is good enough, we believe that borders are not obstacles but opportunities.

The Zangersheide Open Days mean just that, we are open for everyone. Convince yourself and come and take a look.

Hoping to welcome you in February, we wish you all the best in the new year.

The Z Team

Stallion selection during the Open Days
In 2011 the Open Days are again combined with a stallion selection, open to all stallions born up to 2008. On Friday all the stallions will be assessed on conformation, on Saturday they will show themselves in free jumping. On Sunday the older stallions will jump a course, followed by the second presentation in free jumping. This year’s stallion selection committee consists of François Mathy, Ullrich Kasselmann and Jan Tops. On Sunday afternoon they will tell the public about their findings.

Entries will be accepted until 9 February!
