  • This year has been characterised with war, inflation & energy crises. The ongoing effects of Covid-19 and global warming are still in the background. So, it may seem superficial and insensitive to look forward to things of a far less serious nature. But we think this is just what most of us need right now.

    2022 has also had some fabulous highlights for the WBFSH. The Dressage World Breeding Championships returned to Ermelo for a very successful event, showcasing the best young dressage horses in the world. The WBFSH had its second stand, and yet again proved to be a wonderful place to host breeders, riders and dressage enthusiasts. The Jumping and Eventing World Breeding Championships in Lanaken and Le Lion d’Angers respectively, were equally successful and maintained their usual high standards of sport and hospitality.

    In October we were finally able to welcome delegates to the first live General Assembly since 2019. The DSP graciously agreed to postpone hosting the event three times, so that 2022 was finally the year we could all meet up again in person. And what a memorable event it was! The DSP put its best foot forward and has set the bar high for future annual meetings.

    Now we are looking forward to an enjoyable and hopefully peaceful Christmas and many good adventures with the horses in the new year.

    Wishing you and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

    Jan Pedersen & Nadine Brandtner - WBFSH
