Reg­istry Facts

Practical Horseman - - BORN TO PERFORM -

The Olden­burg breed (and breed reg­istry) has rein­vented it­self many times. Lo­cated in north­west­ern Ger­many, the univer­sity city of Vechta is home to the Olden­burger Pferd

ezuchtver­band (breed­ers’ as­so­ci­a­tion). His­tor­i­cally, Olden­burg horses were the main car­riage horse in Ger­many. In the early 20th cen­tury, the breed shifted more to­ward agri­cul­tural use and then in the mid20th cen­tury to­ward sporthorse pro­duc­tion. The Amer­i­can di­vi­sion is known as the Olden­burg Horse Breeder’s So­ci­ety. Olden­burger Pfer­dezuchtver­band

hosts an an­nual fall elite auc­tion, which in­cludes award pre­sen­ta­tions, gala events and horse sales. In 2019, the ver­band will host its 90th elite auc­tion event.
