The Committee of the NZWA are excited to be able to announce that we have signed an agreement to work in conjunction with EQUITANA Auckland to introduce the Performance Horse Auction - New to EQUITANA Auckland in 2019
All NZWA licensed stallions are now given a star rating, which goes alongside the Elite/Principal status awards already in use.
Tonight the NZWA can reveal the most exciting news since our inauguration into the WBFSH back in December. We are very proudly the ONLY studbook in New Zealand approved by the FEI to produce Passports. These will take over from the Blue and Grey papers that NZWB horses have received for the last 40 or so years.
It is with great excitement that the NZWA can now announce that we have been provisionally accepted into the World Breeders Federation for Sport Horses which means our book-keeping and stud books are up to an international standard.
This also means our great NZ horses who have been performing well on the International stage, (e.g. the world's leading eventor Balmoral Sensation) can now be linked back to their country and Register / Stud Book of origin.
We can now, as an officially recognised breed, also enter horses in the FEI World Championships for young horses across all three disciplines.
This is a MASSIVE day for horse breeding in New Zealand.

THIS WILL AFFECT ALL THOSE BREEDING TO NZ BASED STALLIONS THAT ARE LICENSED FOR BREEDING WITH THE NZWA.
From 1 August 2018 the NZWA is tightening up on our regulations regarding Stallion Service Certificates.
We will no longer be accepting retrospectively dated and submitted Service Certificates from stallion owners pertaining to the 2017 breeding season onwards.
The NZWA would like to advise its members about a genetic condition which has been discussed in the equine media as of late. The condition is called Warmblood Fragile Foal Syndrome or (WFFS).
It is an autosomal recessive defect. This means that both males and females can carry the gene and that in-order for a horse to be affected with WFFS the animal must inherit the gene from BOTH parents. It seems largely confined to the Warmblood breeds of horses and has been found across most lines and studbooks.
