The Westphalian Breeders' Association

The Westphalian Breeder’s Association (Westfalisches Pferdestammbuch e.V. ) has been promoting breeding excellence since it was founded in 1904 .

For over 100 years we have taken great care and  pride in developing bloodstock  that excels in show jumping, dressage and eventing. Famous stallions such as Pilot ,Florestan I, Cornet Obolensky, Rubenstein I, and Furst Piccolo are  synonymous  with international competition and breeding success, with our current stallion superstar Damon Hill, helping the German Dressage Team win the Gold Medal for Germany at the 2013 European Championships.

In addition to the implementation of extensive breeding programs,  our dedicated team advises the 7,000 strong membership on all aspects of rearing, training and promoting their bloodstock.  As a Westfalen breeder or owner in any part of the world, you are invited to access all these member services including passport issuance and replacement, foal inspection and branding and stallion grading.

Our Elite Auctions  in the spring and fall showcase the best of what Westfalen Breeders have  to offer with you in carefully selected and trained young stock.  In Westphalia,  there are many breeds to choose from including Warmbloods, Haflingers and Westfalen Ponies.  We have a dedicated Pony Auctions in December of each year.

To ensure that your experience at any of our 7 annual auctions is exceptional, we have established the Westfalen Club for our English speaking clientele, a concierge service to guide you through the process.  Should you prefer to visit us between auctions, the Service 365 allows our dedicated sales team to introduce you to our region’s top breeders and horses they have for sale now.
