A message from the President

Dear Members

Welcome to the July Newsletter – this time it is just a short newsletter to announce the AGM date and to let you know about some great changes that are taking place around stallion licensing and also the way stallion information is presented on the website.

We are also officially calling for Committee Members to join our team.  So if you are passionate about the breeding and recording of Warmblood horses in New Zealand and think you have the skills and ideas that would make you a good committee member, we would love to hear from you.

There is also a new pricing structure for Registrations and the chance to upgrade your old papers to the new passport system.

Also I'm super excited about the new website! - its coming in a matter of weeks - it will of course include our new Online Registration System.  I can't wait to show it to you.

Until then, stay dry and warm and make sure those precious horses do too.

Jody Hartstone, 
President, NZWA
 

 

 REGISTRATION  - NEW PRICING STRUCTURE:

NZWA are issuing International Passports for all new registrations.

Obviously the passports are not cheap to produce, with the rivet machine imported from Germany and the covers from Melbourne. However we are keeping the costs as low as we can as the NZWA believe that we need to encourage New Zealand breeders to register all eligible horses to provide them with proof of date of birth and pedigree.


Other breed associations have quoted over $400 to receive an International Passport, our price increase is around 10% of this!


Prices to register NZWB horses are now:

  • $70 foals out of NZWB Studbook mares
  • $80 foals out of non-NZWB Studbook Mares
  • $100 for all horses over 1 year of age.
  • Derivatives and those on full papers are now on the same fee structure.

Effective immediately.



 
REGISTER ONLINE!

ONLINE REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW HERE!
 
After a few teething problems which only affected a couple of members, it seems the new online registration system is working well.  On the new website this will be accessed through a tab on the front page - so super easy to find.

It would be appreciated if you could send in a brief bio of yourself, how you feel you may be an asset on committee and what your vision is for the NZWA moving forward.  This is especially important if you will not be attending the AGM in person.


 

Want to upgrade your old NZWA papers
to the new passport system?


We are providing upgrades for the special introductory price of $40. 
PLEASE NOTE: You will have the additional cost of getting your vet out scan the microchip / record the brands and fill out our new, specially designed ID form as these passports have a special ID page filled out by VETS ONLY. This is to keep their integrity - and meet international standards. If you would like a passport upgrade, you just need to let the Registrar know (Registrar@nzwarmbloods.com) and we will post you out the Vet ID forms which are riveted in to your new passport. You will also need to send back your old papers to the Registrar when you send back the vet forms.


 
Stallion Star Ranking System:

When the new website is online you will notice that the NZWA licenced stallions will appear in sections and with stars beside their name. The stallions are awarded “Stars” which aim to help the breeding public see at a glance those stallions who are competing at the highest levels in sport, or who have progeny doing the same.  It also separates out the stallions who have achieved the Performance Testing criteria and those who excelled in their licencing, from those who have simply passed a licensing.   There is a clear pathway for your stallion to move up the ranks – whether through his own performance or those of his progeny.
 
No Star                 Any stallion that has passed the NZWA licensing criteria but did not achieve Merit or Excellence during the Licensing and has not met the requirements for a higher star status.

One Star              Any Stallion that passed Licensing with a Merit or Excellence during the Licensing but has not met the requirements for a higher star status.

Two Star              Any Stallion that is Licensed and has achieved the Performance testing requirements.
 
Three Star           Any Stallion that is Licensed and has achieved ‘Principal Stallion’ status through performance in Sport 

Four Star              Any Stallion that is Licensed and has achieved ‘Elite Stallion’ status through performance in Sport 

Adding to this we will have each stallion's licencing result, place of licensing, and his WFFS test results (if available) easily accessible.

 
Stallion Performance Testing:

Along with the new "Star System" the NZWA are introducing Performance Testing criteria for stallions.  Although not a compulsory requirement at this stage, this is a stepping-stone to that eventuality and it is envisaged that Performance Testing will become an absolute requirement for any stallion wishing to be licensed with the NZWA after 2025.
 
The process for how this will look is as outlined below, a stallion would get a ‘temporary license’ to breed after initial licensing, and then be given 12 months to complete the performance criteria relevant to that stallions age.
 
Dressage -          
                                4yr old Stallion – 70% or higher in 5 official level 1 or 2 dressage tests at a Regional Championship show OR 2 percentages over 75% in an official Young Horse Championship Final in the 4yr old class.
 
                                5yr old Stallion – 70% or higher in 5 official level 2 or 3 dressage tests at a Regional Championship show or 2 percentages over 75% in an official Young Horse Championship Final in the 5yr old class.
                               
                                6yr old Stallion – 67% or higher in 5 official level 3 or higher dressage tests at a Regional Championship show or 2 percentages over 73% in an official Young Horse Championship Final in the 6yr old class.
 
                                7yr or older Stallion – 65% or higher in 5 official level 5 or higher dressage tests at a Regional Championship show or 2 percentages over 72% in an official Young Horse Championship Final in the 7yr old class (Stallion must be 7yrs to achieve performance criteria in the Young Horse class).
 
NB – A young horse Championship Final is one such as National Dressage Championships, Horse Of The Year Young Horse Championship, North Island Future Stars or South Island Future Stars.
 
 
Showjumping -
                                4yr old Stallion – 0.90 meter to 1.00 – 4 clear rounds in the top 6 placings at official ESNZ recognised Showjumping shows OR 2 clear rounds with top 6 placings in the 4yr old show jumping qualifiers or finals.
                               
                                5yr old Stallion – 1.00 or more – 4 clear rounds in the top 6 placings at official ESNZ recognised Showjumping shows OR 2 clear rounds with top 6 placings in the 5yr old show jumping qualifiers or finals.
 
                                6yr old Stallion – 1.10 or more – 4 clear rounds in the top 6 placings at official ESNZ recognised Showjumping shows OR 2 clear rounds in the top 6 placings in the 6yr old showjumping qualifiers or finals.
 
                                7yr or older Stallion – 1.15 or more – 4 clear rounds in the top 6 placings at official ESNZ recognised Showjumping shows OR 2 clear rounds with top 6 placings in the 7yr old show jumping qualifiers or finals.
 
Eventing -           
                                4yr old Stallion – Training or higher – 3 results in the top 6 placings with clear x-country jumping, less than 10 time faults and clear in the show jumping phase.
 
                                5yr old Stallion – 1.05 or higher – 3 results in the top 6 placings with clear x-country jumping, less than 10 time faults and clear in the showjumping phase.
 
                                6yr old Stallion – CIC 1* - 3 results in the top 6 placings with clear x-country jumping, less than 10 time faults and clear in the showjumping phase.
 
                                7yr or older Stallion – CIC 2* - 3 results in the top 6 placings with clear x-country jumping, less than 10 time faults and clear in the showjumping phase.
 

Age group and Young Horse classes for Showjumping and Eventing will also be considered as qualifying towards Performance Testing.
 
The NZWA was very careful to be sure that ALL stallions have the ability to achieve the 2* status, as ultimately, we are a Studbook aiming to create performance horses.  As such, if there is a Stallion  that is unable to achieve the performance testing results himself, he can still prove himself to be a stallion capable of producing great progeny…which is of course, always the goal when standing a stallion!
 
A Stallion is able to achieve the Performance Test requirements by having 10 of his progeny meet the performance test criteria across any of the disciplines.  But the results must be from progeny that are registered with a breed association that has a system that fully evidences the breeding and age of the progeny and that is acceptable to the NZWA.

If you ave any queries on this or would like to know more - contact Kieryn Walton the NZWA Vice President and Stallion Liaison Officer waltondressagestables3@gmail.com
