NZWA Stallion Classification

NZWA Stallion Licensing

The New Zealand Warmblood Horse Association (NZWA) has a classification process in place to inspect colts and stallions.

On passing inspection, a certificate is issued to enable the stallion or colt to become a licensed stallion. Further to classification and licensing, stallions that achieve significant success (either individually or via their progeny) can be elevated within the stud book to Principal or Elite status.

2022 Classification Tour will once again be held virtually

Due to the ongoing restrictions of the NZ border, we are unable to bring in an Assessor from Europe. Therefore the 2022 Classification Tour and Foal Competition will once again be assessed by Matthias Werner via Video. The Classification Tour includes foals across all four of the NZWB Registries and also Mares for the Mare Stud Book, Foundation Stud Book and Pre Stud Book. Stallions may be assessed at any time.
