Information sheet of the Black Forest Horse Breeding Association e.v. output


1 information sheet of the Black Forest Horse Breeding Association e.v. Edition Dear friends of the Black Forest draft horses, an eventful breeding year lies behind us. In our fourth edition of 2015 we will focus on the performance tests in Marbach and St. Märgen as well as the cold blood days in St. Märgen. But also the 30th cold blood market in Laupheim is discussed in detail in words and pictures. At the end of the year there is always the time to critically examine the past breeding year. How was the quality of the horses presented at the events, how was the response from the interested visitors, were innovations discussed and implemented? In our opinion, we can all look back on a successful Black Forest breeding year. Overall, high-quality forests were presented at the various events, even if, as a saddened drop, the number of mares presented was lower than in previous years. Our events were always well attended from near and far. Due to the weather, the performance test in St. Märgen was an exception. Extremely pleasing that the cold blood days in October were again a crowd puller, especially the sold out show evening. Foal shows and cold blood days are and will remain the flagship of Black Forest breeding in the Ländle. In a meeting at the end of February, the Breed Advisory Board decided on an elite mare regulation for draft horses. Unfortunately one looks in vain for a publication of the new guidelines. In times of cross-association cooperation, workshops and project groups, we Black Forest breeders show that we are one big family that usually pulls together. Our Black Forest passion is not only evident as a whole as a large family, horse breeding within a single family has also led to an impressive sense of achievement this year. Birgit and Roland Finsterwald with their three girls Jana, Svenja and Linda from Salem-Buggensegel were proud that their two gold foals from Vogtsberg and Rotenberg were selected as stallion candidates of the main and state stud Marbach for the 2017 licensing. After her self-bred and reared stallion Rosenkavalier v. Rubiniero was also licensed and was even champion stallion, they are certainly the unofficial Black Forest Breeder of the Year Thomas Armbruster & Gerhard Schröder licensing winner 2015 JHP Rosenkavalier by Rubiniero with the whole Finsterwald family 1

2 Licensing 2015 The licensing of the draft horse stallions took place on Saturday as part of the draft horse days in St. Märgen. 9 young Black Forest stallions as well as the seven-year-old Noriker Fresach Elmar XIV, who was already licensed in Austria, and the nine-year-old Black Forest stallion Vulkan v. Vogtsberg. Four Black Forests were raised and presented by the main and state stud Marbach. The other stallion candidates come from private exhibitors.

14 Gala evening in St. Märgen The golden late autumn Saturday of the cold blood days was rounded off by the gala show in the well-filled white fir hall. As in previous years, a firework of graphs was put together in St. Märgen under the motto The versatile use of Black Forest draft horses to create an entertaining program. The audience was put in the mood by the marching in of the traditional costume band St. Märgen-Glashütte under the direction of Klaus Simon. Helmut Faller, the chairman of the Black Forest Horse Breeding Cooperative, and Karl Heinz Eckerlin honored Nikolaus Becherer with his wife (Elzach-Prechtal), Edgar Meßmer (Engen) and Hugo Gantert with his wife (Ühlingen). All received the association pin and certificate for their breeding achievements and services in the preservation of the Black Forest draft horse. Breeding manager Manfred Weber then commented on the three newly licensed Black Forest draft stallions (see separate report licensing 2015), which were skillfully presented by hand. The deputy chairman of the horse breeding association Ba-Wü, Karl Heinz Eckerlin, presented the successful stallion owners and breeders with honorary prizes. The strong moving and extremely typey Champion Stallion Rosenkavalier v. This time Rubiniero was raised privately, for which Roland and Birgit Finsterwald received, among other things, the Bonndorf Cup. It would be unfair to highlight outstanding graphs in this gala show. All contributions were of a high standard and everyone gave their best within the entertaining entertainment program. 13 children and young people of the vaulting group Upper Elztal were lined up according to size and showed their skills on the horse. We all suffered when the smallest of the reliably striding Black Forest mare slipped down and tears flowed. Riding without a bridle, only with the neck ring, was demonstrated by Christine Rombach and Katrin Mäder with their Black Forest mares as a trusting interplay between man and horse. 14th

15 disability and offers them the opportunity to deal with horses. For the show evening, Heinz-Dieter Ludwig, head of the riding therapy there, rehearsed a Black Forest romance with handicapped people, supervisors, two horses, the Baden flag and a lot of imagination. Connoisseurs of the matter identified the stoic Black Forest gelding, with whom one can do almost anything, than the licensing candidate Wirbel v. Wildfuchs, who took on a new challenge as a gelding in Stetten in 2013 for the benefit of the disabled. The Black Forest quartet from the Middle Black Forest consisted of two driven and two ridden Black Forest mares, who performed a breathtaking dance in the swing of the background melodies. The professional clown, theater pedagogue and actress Anja Faller, who lives in St. Märgen, hides behind the clown and 1-horsepower dancer Thusnelda, who wanted to teach St. Märgens Mayor Manfred Kreutz to saddle a pony from the ladder with fun and games. The program for the young breeders was divided into two parts. First, Karina Schütz skillfully commented on the tasks of the young breeders when presenting a horse for assessment by the commission. This was followed by a ridden quadrille with 8 Black Forest horses, in which the youngsters also demonstrated skills in the saddle. The Diakonie Stetten from the greater Stuttgart area is particularly committed to people with The St. Märgen Riding and Driving Association had come up with a surprise that was kept secret until the last minute: a strapped black forest plush showed more urge to move than stubborn ponies on the leashes. This entertaining chart prepared April 15

16 obviously great fun for everyone involved. The Reitquadrille Middle Black Forest spared no effort. Their Black Forest horses wore fluorescent bandages and ribbons that glowed in the black light and thus focused the audience solely on the horses' movement mechanics. As a novelty in the show program, the main and state stud Marbach participated with the presentation of the young stallions Roter Milan and Dachsbub under the saddle as well as the already advanced state stud stallions Ramstein and Falkenstein. The riding lessons were moderated by the deputy head of the stud farm, Dr. Carolin Eiberger. In the interests of all viewers, our unanimous wish: please again next year, or even better, a constant participation of the main and state stud. The Witches' Sabbath rehearsed by Ute Kaltenbach offered a special kind of spectacle. Four Black Forest witches danced and rode in the twilight around a boiling cauldron, from which a green monster could not frighten the horses either. At the invitation of the Horse Breeding Association of Baden-Württemberg, the show gymnastics group Crazy-Turnados from Wiggensbach in the Allgäu showed their spectacular skills coupled with humor and a wink. From the highest bar in the world to the acrobatics on the painter's ladder to the Baywatch parody, they gave an insight into their diverse program, which was rewarded with long-lasting applause. As a grand finale, the Black Forest horse breeding cooperative demonstrated a dizzying one and two-horse quadrille in the white fir hall, which is very narrow due to the VIP seating, under the motto Bluesbrothers on Tour. Many thanks to Bettina Saier for the planning and organization of this evening, which was successful in every respect and which was sensitively moderated by the breeding manager Manfred Weber. If you wanted, you could end the cold blood evening 2015 in a cozy get-together among friends and colleagues with folk hits in the Schwarzwaldhalle. If you got in line at the counter early enough, you could even get something to eat. Unfortunately we weren't lucky: everything was sold out! Request from the organizers of the show evening Also this year we have tried to offer the breeders and friends of the Black Forest draft horse an entertaining show evening in St. Märgen in the Weißtannenhalle. Many committed, horse-loving people have come up with something to entertain a large audience for over 90 minutes. 16

17 There were some mishaps beforehand and some bad dress rehearsals. It has to be like this! But everyone had the courage to perform in the white fir hall under the difficult conditions (strange hall, large audience / cramped conditions). The next Roßfest (2016) is just around the corner. This should be an incentive to everyone who feels like performing in St. Märgen during the show program and to take part. It would be great if more groups or people could be found to take part in a show program at the festivals around the Black Forest Cold Blood. If you feel like it and just want to be contacted in the coming year, you should contact the editors of the information sheet.

A picture and his story Florian Solle The deputy head of the stud, Dr. Carolin Eiberger during the 2015 breeding season in St. Märgen. Together with Karl-Heinz Bleher, she harnessed the four state stud stallions Donner, Maitanz, Roter Milan and Wildbach and together they drove through the picturesque landscape around St. Märgen. Miss Dr. Eiberger took the lines into his own hands! Alfred Schwär kindly made the picture available to us. 18th

19 Versatility of the Black Forest draft horse The Riding and Driving Association Upper Elztal e.v. organized on Sunday the annual riding and driving festival. The fact that the Black Forest cold-blooded horses are by no means lazy, they were able to prove in bright sunshine on a green meadow. The program was almost exclusively carried out with the Black Forest foxes. The audience was able to marvel at the versatility and good character of this horse breed. Above all, having fun with the horses and good camaraderie were in the foreground. Horse friend The fact that our lovable Black Forest foxes are real friends was something 15 children could experience during the holiday program at the Brosihof in Biederbach. Trust in and fun with our four-legged friends were the focus of grooming, leading, riding and playing games. In the end there were beaming faces and styled horses. The photogenic Black Forest chief Winnetou captured the heart of a pretty Black Forest squaw by storm. In the sledge race and the fun course, speed and, at the same time, serenity of the horse and driver or rider were required. The highlight of the afternoon was the club's own riding quadrille, ridden on a total of 16 Black Forest foxes. Text and photos: Birgit Motteler Of course, the drivers didn’t miss out too soon after they successfully presented the two-horse quadrille with eight teams, and it went straight to the annual club championships in skill driving. This year Markus Becherer emerged as the winner with his team. An all-round successful festival with a lot of positive advertising for our Black Forest foxes as an absolute family horse.
