|Westfalen NA in the News
The Westfalen NA is pleased to announce our support of a new North American Stallion Performance Test, organized jointly
with the American Hanoverian Society and the German Oldenburg Verband (GOV).
The Westfalen Verband requires performance testing for
all permanent stallion licensings. Previously, the RPSI had a long history of administering and supporting stallion performance testing in North America. The very first
30 and 70-day stallion tests in the USA were organized by the RPSI. The North American Stallion Test, run by Summer Stoffel of
Silver Creek Farm, took over the reins of stallion testing up until 2015.
The first Stallion Performance short tests were held on the east and west coasts in the fall of 2017. Marydell Farm's stallion
Debonair MF (Doctor Wendell x Rotspon) who stands at Hilltop Farm, was licensed and passed his test at the East coast site. On the west coast, passing their testing
was Dreamscape Farm's Delta Force (Diarado x Cassini I) and Country Lane Farm's Centre Point (Chambertin x Cassini I). Again in 2018, locations
for testing are anticipated to include Hilltop Farm in Colora, MD and Pollyrich Farms in Solvang, CA.
Warmblood and Pony stallions between the ages of 4-6 years are eligible to attend. More information on the 2018 test will be available soon.
The 2018 Inspection Tour planning is well underway, and the route is shaping up to be one of the most extensive tours we've offered.
As in 2017, the Westfalen inspection team will travel from July to October to offer inspection, branding, and evaluations at both open
and private sites around the USA and Canada. This year our breeding director from the Westfalen Verband office in Germany - Wilken Treu -
will also be joining for part of the North American tour.
