is organizing and doing the inspection for the Westphalian Pferdestammbuch e.V. Germany
Principles of the attendance of American breeders
There is only one Westphalian breeding-book, which is located at Münster and is kept in
accordance with the provisions of the breeding-book regulations of the Westphalian
Horse Breeders Association. Sire and dam of the foals who are to be brandmarked with
the Westphalian brandmark, or for which a pedigree-paper is to be issued, must be
registered in the breeding book, no matter where they may be located.
II. Registration of foals & mare
Foals can be registered (foalbrand and pedigree-paper), if either the dam and/or the sire
has Westphalian or Rheinländer pedigree-papers. In any case the sire has to be licensed by a German
Warmblood Association (any German Warmblood Sire is accepted!) but he must have successfully passed the
stallion approval test in Germany. In exceptional cases the stallion approval test in U.S.A. can be accepted.
Besides Westphalian mares, other warmblood and Thoroughbred mares can be registered
and accepted as a broodmare for the Westphalian Association if they are of outstanding
