American Trakehner Association Announces 2011 Inspection Schedule


The American Trakehner Association will hold 2011 mare and stallion inspections throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Newark, OH, May 25, 2011 --(PR.com)-- The American Trakehner Association has announced its 2011 inspection schedule, with dates and requirements available under "Inspections" at www.americantrakehner.com. The inspections, held throughout the U.S. and Canada, provide the opportunity to present horses for approval into the ATA studbooks and offer participants both a learning experience and a glimpse into development of this oldest of the warmblood breeds.

The ATA is committed to the selective breeding standards established in Trakehnen, East Prussia, in 1732 “...to encourage the development of a riding horse of beauty and harmony, great endurance, mental and physical balance, and possessing an excellent character." Upon approval, both Official Stud Book mares and stallions are recognized by the German Trakehner Verband and mares are automatically approved for the Verband Main Studbook. Stallions approved by the ATA will also be approved for the Verband Studbook if they complete the Verband's performance requirements.

All mares and stallions presented for inspection must be pre-registered with the ATA. Stallion candidates have additional veterinary and radiography requirements and are evaluated on:
Athletic ability, including movement at all three gaits as well as free jumping
Conformation as well as breed and gender type
General impression, including manners and temperament

The ATA was established in 1974 as a non-profit association of breeders, owners, and friends for the promotion and preservation, in the Western Hemisphere, of the warmblood horse of Trakehner origin. For more information, visit www.americantrakehner.com.
