Newark, OH — The American Trakehner Association announced 11 locations will host mare, stallion and young horse inspections in 2013, with three of those being in Canada.

Inspections, held annually across the U.S. and Canada, provide the opportunity for breeders to present horses for approval into the ATA studbooks. They also offer spectators a glimpse into the modern development of this oldest of the warmblood breeds.

The three inspection locations slated for Canada this year are in Quebec, Ontario, and Alberta, while four locations from Maine to Florida offer East Coast breeders the opportunity to have mares and young horses inspected. Three Midwestern states will host ATA inspectors for mares and young horses, with this year’s final inspection being at the association’s annual convention location in Ohio. The last is also the only stallion inspection for the year.

Inspection locations are selected based on the number of horses being offered for inspection and volunteers who have the facilities to host them.

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. All mares and stallions presented for inspection must be pre-registered with the ATA.

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.”

For more information on the breed, Trakehners making their mark in various competitions, and for details on each inspection, visit the “American Trakehner Association” page on Facebook and open the “Events” folder.
